COOK'S COUNTRY FROM AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN features the best regional home cooking — from potluck dinners and holiday favorites to simple suppers and lost recipes. The series takes the same practical, no-nonsense and scientific approach as Cook’s Country magazine by providing home cooks with foolproof recipes and cooking techniques developed through rigorous investigation and careful testing.
These comprehensive cooking guides will teach you the core techniques behind classic American dishes. You will also learn what equipment and which ingredients are absolutely essential in the preparation of these classic recipes. Each guide also lists our all-time best recipes so you can find just the recipe you want.
In season five, test kitchen chefs Bridget Lancaster, Julia Collin Davison and Erin McMurrer cook a variety of family-friendly recipes with host Christopher Kimball. The Tasting Lab's Jack Bishop again challenges Kimball to sample supermarket staples, while Adam Ried reveals his top equipment recommendations. Other segments include: "Food History" and "Ask Cook’s Country."
