"Cook's Country From America's Test Kitchen" features regional home cooking from across the country. The series, like the successful Cook’s Country magazine, approaches food in a practical, no-nonsense way. In a renovated 1806 farmhouse, the cast scientifically re-imagines family-friendly recipes for the modern home cook.

In this episode, Bridget Lancaster adapts a Texas favorite and shows host Christopher Kimball how to make authentic-tasting chili con carne at home. Then, Lancaster teaches Kimball how to make Southern-style skillet cornbread with hearty corn flavor. Finally, equipment expert Adam Ried tests safety can openers and reveals the winner.
