Now complete with a brand new cover, this must-have entertaining cookbook takes all the guesswork out of putting together flavorful and practical menus.

When you’re entertaining, there’s no room for failure–you want your food to deliver on taste and presentation–yet you want the recipes to be approachable enough so that you can enjoy the party, too. Menu planning is hard even for very experienced cooks, but with The America’s Test Kitchen Menu Cookbook, we have taken the guesswork out of entertaining. The recipes are built and tested so that they complement each other, and all the logistics have been sorted out. You don’t need to worry about oven space or temperature issues–we’ve done all that for you. And to keep the process stress-free, make-ahead instructions are built into individual recipes as well as each menu’s game plan.

Want to host a fall dinner party but don’t want to get up at the crack of dawn? Try our Rustic Fall Pork Dinner. Simple ham and cheese palmiers made with puff pastry are a sure-to-impress starter, while the main course is an easy but elegant entree and side combo you can make on a sheet pan: roast pork loin with sweet potatoes and cilantro sauce. Tired of stressing out over Thanksgiving? Follow our timelines from start to finish and you’ll be sipping a glass of wine along with your guests while the bird roasts. Want to bring the party outdoors? Try our Beat-the-Heat Grilled Shrimp Dinner or Dinner from the Garden. And themed menus like our Tapas Party, Pizza Night, Mexican Fiesta, and more are both fun and manageable. Stumped by appetizers but tired of serving crackers and cheese? You’ll find plenty of options here, like our Simple Caramelized Onion Tart with Fig Jam, Blue Cheese, and Prosciutto (store bought pizza dough makes this a snap). Or try our contemporary take on smoked salmon canapes that features an easy creme fraiche dip, potato chips, and sliced smoked salmon. Organized around the seasons with menus that serve eight, plus a special holiday and for-a-crowd chapter, this volume is packed with tips that will help you shop and budget your time, this book is a must-have for anyone who likes to entertain.

Foolproof recipes and essential timesaving steps that you need for stress-free cooking and dining.

Unlike other cookbooks that try to impress company to a fault, turn dinner into a feat of culinary Olympics, or are simply recipe compilations, The America’s Test Kitchen Menu Cookbook offers easy-to-follow strategies for successfully creating more than 50 assorted menu plans. We’ve cooked through every menu from start to finish, keeping things manageable, and we’ve worked out all of the logistical nightmares so you can enjoy your guests and don’t need to worry about oven space or temperature issues when you’re cooking. In all, you’ll have more than 250 recipes from which to choose, sorted by season, plus a bonus chapter focused exclusively on holiday entertaining throughout the year. Each seasonal chapter includes 10 complete menu plans spotlighting in-season ingredients. Cooking with in-season ingredients enhances the flavor of your meal with minimal effort.

Roasted Cod and Potatoes

Roasted Cod and Potatoes

New England Cod and Potato Dinner

For our homey New England Cod and Potato Dinner, we attractively shingle thinly sliced potatoes across a rimmed baking sheet, give them a head start in the oven to ensure that they emerge browned and crisp, and then top them with cod fillets rubbed with a flavorful herbed butter and slices of lemon; as the fish bakes, its juices flavor the potatoes. Paired with Roasted Fennel and Mushroom Salad and, for dessert, a Cranberry Upside-Down Cake, this is an easy but elegant supper.

Tapas Platter

Tapas Party

Entertaining isn’t always about a sit-down dinner: A well-orchestrated cocktail and Tapas Party is a good way to host a gathering. From Sangría, Sizzling Garlic Shrimp, and Spanish Tortilla with Garlic Mayonnaise to Cocktail Meatballs in Tomato-Saffron Sauce, our tapas menu offers an array of hot and cold dishes, many of which you can make the day before so you can enjoy the party, too. Dulce de Leche Sandwich Cookies (dipped in chocolate) are an irresistible dessert.

Cannoli

Cannoli

New York–Style Pizza Party

With our easy-to-make recipe (for four pizzas), any home cook can host a New York–Style Pizza Party without a roaring hot brick oven or expert pizza-tossing skills. Our secret: Proof the dough in the refrigerator and a revised oven rack setup. It takes just 20 minutes to make the dough the day before your party. Worried about the logistics and the toppings for four pizzas? So were we until we discovered a few make-ahead tricks that keep things easy. Add a bright Citrus Salad with Bitter Greens and Homemade Pistachio Cannoli and your friends will be talking about your party for weeks.

Arugula

Arugula

Family-Style Italian Sunday Supper

Our Family-Style Italian Sunday Supper features a One-Pot Bolognese that tastes as rich as versions that simmer all day. Our secret? We boost the meaty flavor with dried porcini mushrooms and pancetta, and to keep things easy, we cook the pasta right in the sauce, giving the noodles extra flavor, too. Serve with Arugula Salad with Figs and Prosciutto and a dessert of Chocolate-Dipped Pistachio Biscotti, and this will be a menu that everyone in your family will love.
