The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies
Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life.

One place that consistently provides great stuff is an online community for home cooks called Food52. The site is run by Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, and has just published its first cookbook with recipes created by members of the community.

The method and recipe, posted by Merrill, produced a juicy, evenly cooked whole 4-pound chicken in less than an hour. Since then, every time I make a roast chicken I use this approach.The next step was to transfer this approach to cooking a whole turkey.
