Whether a home cook is looking for an easy-to-prepare main dish for a holiday buffet, a crowd-pleasing starter for the next game-day party, or an easy-to-serve dessert, Best Potluck Recipes will have them covered (and inspired)! And because they have been tested by our trusted test kitchen, you know that they are guaranteed to work every time.

Coming up with a great menu idea, one that can be prepared from appetizer to dessert without losing your mind, is perhaps the hardest part of entertaining. Our test cooks and editors assembled 40 seasonable menus that really work, taste-wise and timing-wise, as well as a chapter focused on holidays that will put home cooks in control when they need to serve a crowd. Menu options for both casual and fancy dinners are offered, as are game plans with make-ahead steps such as brining, salting, marinating, and baking that streamline preparation time. Now home cooks can prepare great meals and spend time with their guests.

This landmark book is the result of thousands of hours of trial and error in our test kitchen as we made our way to the best way to bake, period. It is for any cook who has struggled over a pie crust, been baffled by cookies that are hard and crispy instead of soft and chewy, or made a layer cake that resembled the Leaning Tower of Pisa. In other words, for everyone who has ever baked anything. Weâ€™ve exhaustively examined every technique, ingredient, and piece of equipment critical to successful baking, and describe the results of our experiments throughout so home cooks can benefit from understanding why recipes succeed, and why they fail.
