Sunset has the best test kitchen team. Not only do they fix any mistakes in our recipes before the recipes hit the magazine, they give as all kinds of great new ideas—like wearing goggles for grilling.
One of our recipe testers, Rebecca Parker, recently brought some RSVP onion goggles into work because she has sensitive eyes and knew she was going to be prepping lots of onions. When she found out her day was also going to involve testing Michael Chiarello’s Calabrian chicken al mattone over a potentially smoky wood fire, she had a brilliant idea: wear the goggles for grilling.
She says they work brilliantly. Even when the fire was smoking a bit, not a single tear. (And yes, she loves them for onions, too.)
