America's Test Kitchen is a real place: a no-nonsense, fully equipped test kitchen located just outside Boston, MA, where a team of highly qualified test cooks and editors perform thousands of tests every year. The goal? To develop the best recipes and cooking techniques, recommend the best cookware and equipment, and rate brand-name pantry staples for home cooks. America's Test Kitchen is devoted to a collegial approach to cooking—teams of editors, writers, and cooks engage in side-by-side comparisons, blind taste tests, and rigorous equipment performance tests to determine which pans work and which ones don't, which brand of ketchup tastes best, and so on.America's Test Kitchen accepts no advertising. We are a private company with no affiliations with large publishers, cookware manufacturers, or food purveyors, which means that our content is unbiased and objective.
The Best Light REcipe offers more than 300 full-flavored lower-fat and reduced calorie recipes that still taste great and are guaranteed foolproof by the test cooks and editors who bring you Cook's Illustrated magazine. If we weren't satisfied with the results in our kitchen, the recipe didn't make the book.

  • great recipes and info

    This recipe book has recipes for reduced calorie and fat dishes that still taste great. My teenage daughter made four of them and they were all great. My favorite part of the book is the way they teach techniques and review brand name products as well as equipment, all in a fun to read manner.

  • The Best Light Recipe

    This book is great and one you can use daily to create a healthy dinner! The ingredients are common, everyday things stocked in your kitchen, the recipes are delicious and the description is very interesting, informative and useful. For example, using cornstarch to thicken Alfredo sauce rather than using butter and flour is a great idea I would not have thought of on my own to make a common recipe so much more healthy! Enjoy!

  • Slimming in NJ

    What it lacks in pictures it DEFINITELY makes up for in taste. The recipies are so good that I have served them to unsuspecting guests. I can't buy turkey burgers out any more. The best are in this book. Even my doubting husband has given his stamp of approval. It has become the main cookbook in my kitchen. My tastebuds (and my thighs) are thanking me.

  • Great recipes!

    This is a very well put together and researched cookbook. Every recipe I have tried has been a winner. If you are a foodie you will enjoy reading about the whole process of slimming down the full fat versions of each recipe! The only downside is--not a lot of pictures of the finished product.
