In addition to the popular segments viewers love and trust — such as foolproof recipes, equipment reviews and taste-tests — the 10th season also features new segments and fresh faces. Host Christopher Kimball is joined in the kitchen by cooks Bridget Lancaster, Julia Collin Davison, Rebecca Hays, J. Kenji Alt and newcomer Yvonne Ruperti.
This season, the "America's Test Kitchen" team prepares 50 all-new recipes, including triple chocolate mousse cake, blueberry muffins, baked ziti, grilled salmon, slow-braised short ribs, French fries, pumpkin pie, chocolate chip cookies, hearty Italian meat sauce, old-fashioned burgers and more.
In this episode, test cook Yvonne Ruperti shows host Christopher Kimball how to make the best upside down apple cake, while gadget guru Lisa McManus reveals the test kitchen's top choice for apple slicers. Then, tasting expert Jack Bishop challenges Kimball to a tasting of vanilla, and finally, test cook Julia Collin Davison makes an easy, yet elegant berry gratin.
