Anna Scott, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Anna Scott has tested.

Anna Scott

Anna Scott has been an LC recipe tester since December 2010. Her love of food was inspired by her father, who taught her that a meal isn’t just the act of eating, but rather an experience that involves all of the senses—the presentation on the plate, the warm smell of the kitchen, the lively conversations at the dinner table, and the texture of the bread that you break. A Le Cordon Bleu graduate, she now works as a personal chef in Atlanta and is writing her first cookbook, which will focus on seasonal meals and incorporating mise en place into your everyday cooking repertoire.

A fancy Bundt Kentucky bourbon cake on a silver platter.

Kentucky Bourbon Cake

This Southern classic is like a pound cake given its decadent amount of butter and its tender crumb. But oh, baby, wait’ll you taste the bourbon glaze.

An oval casserole dish of acquacotta - eggs poached in a tomato and onion sauce -- with a piece of bread, plate, and utensils on the side.

A bowl of homemade yellow mustard next to a wooden spoon filled with mustard seeds.

Why make your own mustard? Because you can. And if that’s not reason enough, there’s no comparison between this and the store-bought stuff. Enough said.
