Do you have a burning question about a cooking technique, special ingredient, or a tricky recipe? Then our newest franchise is just for you: Ask the TK! (That's Cooking Light shorthand for "Test Kitchens," btw.)

Our staff of trained Test Kitchens professionals spends office hours in the kitchen and at the market, tirelessly testing every recipe that makes it to print (and many others that don't). Every day at lunch, they sit down with the food editors for a rigorous taste testing session, evaluating and adjusting each recipe until it reaches their high standards for taste and good nutrition. Often a recipe requires several fine-tunings before this tough crowd gives it a "pass."

All this cooking and tasting means a wealth of knowledge and culinary expertise that's here to help answer your best questions. We may not be able to answer all of them, but we'll pick the ones that we find the most useful and post the answers right here on our blog.

To submit a question, just send us an email! We look forward to hearing from you.
