AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN FROM COOK'S ILLUSTRATED, public television's most-watched cooking show, returns with 26 original episodes. Host Christopher Kimball and test kitchen cooks Bridget Lancaster, Julia Collin Davison, Rebecca Hays and Yvonne Ruperti deconstruct America's favorite recipes to reveal the secrets to foolproof cooking at home.

In addition to the popular segments viewers love and trust — Adam Ried's equipment reviews, Jack Bishop's taste-tests and Doc Willoughby's science behind cooking segments — the 12th season includes the new "Do It Yourself" segment in which newcomer Bryan Roof makes many common ingredients.

Next, Chris goes into the kitchen with test cook Bridget Lancaster to learn the secrets to making the ultimate thin-crust pizza at home. And finally, tasting expert Jack Bishop challenges Chris to a tasting of red wine vinegar.

What is America's Test Kitchen?

We know how frustrating it can be when things go wrong in the kitchen. That's why every single recipe in our books has been tested not once, not twice, but often as many as 20, 30, or even 40 times. And then, just to make absolutely sure, we often test our recipes using cheap cookware, mediocre stovetops, and the wrong ingredients. All of this work results, we hope, in a simple promise: Our recipes work the first time and every time. Please visit our websites:
