Product description

Review

The Food Lab is The Joy of Cooking for the modern cook, and it has something to teach even the most experienced chefs.-- "USA Today"

The Food Lab is a keeper.--Chris Kimball "Wall Street Journal"

[The Food Lab] promises tried-and-tested accuracy, groundbreaking technique and inarguable results. All that, plus humor.-- "Washington Post"

A beautiful behemoth. . . . The Food Lab's vision of "better home cooking through science"--and, I would add, through the internet--is a convincing one.-- "New Republic"

An authoritative, instant-classic reference book that's also an engaging read.-- "Seattle Times"

Five years in the making, [The Food Lab is] a culmination of the wunderkind's unlikely ascent into a cultish figure--and the face of a new kind of home cooking.-- "San Francisco Chronicle"

Loaded with fascinating information...López-Alt gives you enough science for the explanations to make sense, but everything is still firmly rooted in practical home cooking.--Russ Parsons "Los Angeles Times"

The ultimate book for science nerds who cook.-- "Wired"

You need The Food Lab, as J. Kenji Lopez-Alt's magnum opus is 2015's most indispensable cookbook.-- "The Chicago Tribune"

4.0 out of 5 stars Damaged and smells
By James McLendon on 28 May 2021
The content is great. However, kind of annoyed at the damage to the corner.
Also, the book has a strong dead animal smell. Very weird. Hopefully the smell goes away.
