Twin Cities and 'The New Best Recipe'Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Rather than posting a new recipe or culinary lesson today, I thought it'd be appropriate to briefly mention some highlights from a recent weekend trip to the Twin Cities in case anyone is planning a similar trip. With the majority of Friday and Sunday devoted to driving, we (myself and my older sister, aunt, and uncle) tried to make the most of Saturday. Along with seeing some landmark bridges and buildings downtown, a lot of our time was spent visiting some foodie hot-spots. We started off Saturday in Uptown at Kitchen Window, which is a 20,000 square foot kitchen supply store that offers an insane amount of cookware, bake ware, gadgets, cutlery, appliances, etc. in addition to hosting over 400 classes a year. Needless to say, I could have spent the whole day here.

- In order for a recipe to make it in the book, chefs from America's Test Kitchen picked up to 50 different versions of the same dish to test, and voted on the winner.
- There are 1,000 of these fully tested recipes in this
- There's usually a good page or so of text and illustrations before each recipe that explains the science behind why this particular recipe works. Alton would be proud.

And thus concludes one of the greatest foodie-friendly days to date.
