A grand tour of the science of cooking explored through popular American dishes, illustrated in full color.


The Food Lab – Better Home Cooking Through ScienceEver wondered how to pan-fry a steak with a charred crust and an interior that is perfectly medium-rare from edge to edge when you cut into it?

Or how to make homemade macaroni and cheese that is as satisfyingly gooey and velvety-smooth as the blue box stuff but far tastier?

How to roast a succulent, moist turkey and use a foolproof method that works every time?

As Serious Eats’s culinary nerd-in-residence, J. Kenji López-Alt has pondered all these questions and more.

In The Food Lab, Kenji focuses on the science behind beloved American dishes, delving into the interactions between heat, energy, and molecules that create great food.
