The ultimate book for science nerds who cook.

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

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

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

The Food Lab is a keeper.--Chris Kimball
