America's Test Kitchen Radio
Nobody makes cooking and food more fun and accessible than Chris Kimball of America’s Test Kitchen. America’s Test Kitchen Radio is a new 60-minute food program for right now— filled with clear, practical information, without the gourmet fuss. The hour is all about insights, tips, and techniques that illuminate the truth about real home cooking.
Host Christopher Kimball will introduce you to an eclectic collection of test cooks and food experts from the Test Kitchen and people who have unique and useful perspectives with rich stories to tell about cooking and food. The guest list is a virtual who’s who of the food world including: Michael Bauer, Ruth Reichl, George Howell, Alice Waters, Jonathan Waxman, Judy Rodgers, Rick Bayless, Patric Kuh, Danny Meier, Phil Vitel and Mark Bittman.
There is a world of cooking out there—equipment, gadgets, taste tests, cooking history, food chemistry, and honest investigations of both the good and bad in the world of food. Add to that the voices of real home cooks who want to know why their rolls don’t rise, whether real Greek yogurt is better than American-made, and whether a pressure cooker can be used to deep-fry a turkey… and you have a frothy stew of information, opinions, revelations, and old-fashioned back-and-forth conversation. – Christopher Kimball
