It's bad enough that I've only made one Cooks Illustrated recipe so far.

I got my first issue of Cook's Illustrated today. It's just fabulous. The illustrations are a mix of photos and engravings, all in sepia tone. They cover the process of developing a recipe for, say, Swedish meatballs or chewy chocolate cookies or chicken noodle soup, and talk about where they started, what changes they made, and what effect each change had. They go over various stages in texture, flavor, and whatever they investigated. Then they finish with the recipe.
They've got a section on gear, where they smashed skillets against concrete to see how they held up. There's a section on proper vegetable storage and chopping, which has some lovely onion-slicing ideas.
They have some tips sections, some from readers and some relevant to this issue's recipes.
There are no ads at all. They're associated with the PBS show America's Test Kitchen. Now that would be a cool place to work.

This is going to be very cool.
