The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook (more than 250,000 copies sold) is coming out in a luxe, hardcover gift edition — perfect for engagements, weddings, and graduations. For decades, the rule of thumb for recipes has been “serves 4 to 6,” or even more, leaving small households, newlyweds, empty nesters, college students, and others stuck with days of leftovers. Who better than the test cooks at America’s Test Kitchen, to deliver the perfect solution to this problem. Part kitchen manual, part cookbook, this groundbreaking volume was the first of its kind to engineer recipes from the ground up for the two-person household. We put our kitchen expertise to work to figure out how to scale down the trickiest dishes, from soups and stews to stir-fries and lasagnas–even cakes and pies. America’s Test Kitchen takes out all the guesswork and delivers creative solutions for foolproof and delicious meals for two.
