The Test Kitchen perfects each of our thousands of recipes to be delicious and doable. Here, we share what it takes to become a Southern Living recipe.
After testing, each recipe is passed to our recipe editors for careful examination. They check each detail against a recipe stylebook, ensure the can and food packaging sizes are consistent with what you’d find at the grocery store, and read and reread the instructions to eliminate any ambiguity. But even that is not the end: The recipe must pass the edits of several more food and copy editors before being cleared for you to try it at home.
Did you know? Test Kitchens Professionals wash their hands an average of 20 times for each recipe they prepare.
