America’s Test Kitchen couples more than 120 recipes for the food processor with a 101-level introduction to the appliance, including a comprehensive buying guide and a visual anatomy of the machine. Chapters include dips and spreads, salads and sides, meatless mains, no-bowl baking, creamy desserts, and tips for kneading dough and grinding meat. DIYers will delight in the home-ground beef chili and the Thai pork lettuce wraps, no butcher required. Vegetarians can make use of the easy slice and dice blades to prepare a vegetable stir-fry with crispy tofu or and Provençal vegetable soup. Basic desserts—such as sugar cookies, brownies, and cheesecake—are covered, and the Easiest-Ever Vanilla Ice Cream recipe needs no ice cream maker. The “Eight Clever Uses” guide gives creative options such as grinding superfine sugar at home and making whipped cream without a mixer. Readers won’t find trendy, cutting-edge cooking or artisanal baking here, but this is a solid guide for those in search of no-fuss, easy-to-follow recipes that maximize food processor use. It’s the ideal gift in conjunction with a new Cuisinart. (May)
