The L.A. Times puts its recipes together

January 10, 2013

The Los Angeles Times has a serious test kitchen, cooking through hundreds of recipes a year. Recently the paper arranged its best-of recipes in an easy-to-access format online. No, it’s not a comprehensive database — for that, you’ll want to hit the paper’s main recipe webpage — but it does offer cooks the top 10 (or 12, depending on the year) recipes for each year, going back to 1985. Most of the recipes fall into the category of “solid classics from around the world” — although the Chianti pesto does sound very 1985.
