In their new series, the cast and crew of America’s Test Kitchen
crash the headquarters of Cook’s Country
magazine, a renovated 1806 farmhouse with a working test kitchen, a live studio audience, two barns and the odd neighbor with a knack for stopping by with urgent cooking problems.
In Cook’s Country From America’s Test Kitchen
, the familiar team from public television’s most-watched cooking show revisits recipes from the American repertoire, including lost recipes (chocolate blackout cake), regional favorites (California barbecued tri-tip) and new classics (raspberry chiffon pie). Christopher Kimball, Bridget Lancaster, Julia Collin-Davison, Jack Bishop and Adam Ried bring their same no-nonsense approach to cooking as they reconstruct time-honored, family-friendly recipes for the home cook.
The testers and tasters at Cook’s Country
turn a frugal eye toward the most reliable and cost-effective cookware, kitchen tools and supermarket foods over the course of four segments: Cook’s Country Recipes with Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin-Davison, Food Tastings with Jack Bishop, Equipment Testing with Adam Ried and Test Kitchen Tips and Techniques.
In the recipe segments, chefs Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin-Davison cook America’s favorite recipes from Cook’s Country
magazine with host Christopher Kimball. Bridget and Julia deconstruct each recipe to reveal the Cook’s Country
test kitchen secrets to foolproof cooking at home. Next, Jack Bishop challenges Christopher Kimball to taste supermarket staples in front of a live audience, and then reveals the test kitchen’s top recommendations for potato chips, jarred spaghetti sauce, orange juice and more.
Later, equipment expert Adam Ried takes Kimball through his unbiased selections — from dish detergents to inexpensive stand mixers and essential kitchen gadgets. In the tips segment, Kimball shares practical suggestions and techniques designed to make home cooking easier. Topics include: cleaning and caring for cast-iron cookware, buying and cooking beef roasts and the top-10 baking mistakes (and how to avoid them).
