Product Details

Be you a genuine science nerd or simply an inquisitive eater, The Food Lab delves deep into the “whys” and “hows” of cooking. J. Kenji López-Alt has been testing, tasting, and experimenting with food techniques on the blog Serious Eats for years, now collected and expanded upon in this reference-book-cum-recipe-collection. The Food Lab is a compendium of sometimes surprising (and always useful) cooking techniques, with one simple philosophy: If you understand exactly what’s happening when you sear a piece of meat or poach an egg, you’ll not only end up with the best steak or poached egg you’ve ever cooked, you’ll be able to recreate those exact results every time. Now you can have your cake, and know it, too.

Find out what happened when we made Kenji’s 8-page meatloaf recipe!

Comes with a signed bookplate.
