We spend a lot of time testing and developing recipes here at TT, but that's just half the battle: Every recipe we feature has to look beautiful before the internet can beam it into your hungry eyes.
That's why every day, our Test Kitchen doubles as a photo studio where we style and shoot (and, yes, eventually eat) every dish you see on our site. And we're pretty proud of that.
Of course, we all have our favorite moments (like that time we brought in a live spider crab) and recipes (a killer Baked Alaska and that gorgeous pan of crispy braised chicken thighs), and, lucky for us, they've all been captured on camera.
Check out this slideshow for 12 of the year's best photos—all shot right here in the Test Kitchen.
