Join us for an evening with Jack Bishop, the Editorial Director of America's Test Kitchen, as we celebrate the publication of their new book, The America's Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook, a groundbreaking addition to their best-selling ringbound cookbook series.
This all-purpose cookbook delivers 800 foolproof recipes for healthier everyday fare--from breakfast dishes and appetizers to pasta, meat, chicken, kid-friendly favorites, desserts, and more. With this comprehensive cookbook in your kitchen, eating well will no longer be a chore. The book offers up all-American, homestyle recipes that won't leave you hungry. You'll also find natural lean recipes like our Spa Chicken and Lemony Steamed Fish as well as healthy vegetable and grain classics and an entire chapter of vegetarian main dishes.
Every recipe contains full nutritionals and a primer at the start of the book explains basic nutritional guidelines. With this book in hand, you will be able to make simple changes in how you shop, eat, and cook--changes that will deliver a big payoff to your family's health.
