Here in the test kitchen, we’re always looking for new challenges: recipes and techniques that will test our skills and make us better, more knowledgeable cooks.

The widespread popularity of paleo made us think that this was more than just a trend—there seemed to be room for the test kitchen to contribute and add value. This site distills more than a year of research and will function as your guide to successful paleo cooking in the home kitchen.
