Food has become a national obsession and with it a multitude of flashy programs, magazines, books and blogs – ranging from pure entertainment to celebrity showcases. Yet they aren’t much help to the every day cook. That's why America’s Test Kitchen in Boston wants to find a better way to make a food program for radio. America’s Test Kitchen Radio is a food program for right now – filled with clear, practical information, without the gourmet fuss. The hour is all about insights, tips and techniques that illuminate the truth about real home cooking. There will be some mystery, too, like why bad things happen to good recipes and the science behind good results The team behind America's Test Kitchen Radio knows something about connecting with audiences. Some two million public television fans watch each episode of America’s Test Kitchen, the most watched weekend lifestyle show on public TV. America’s Test Kitchen Radio host Chris Kimball will introduce listeners to an eclectic collection of test cooks and food experts from the Test Kitchen, and people who come at food and cooking from unique and useful perspectives, with rich stories to tell. Chris is a natural host during segments and call-in, and has moved easily from guesting on Morning Edition and other programs. In previews, test PD’s called the show “surprising, useful and entertaining,” “fascinating,” “relevant” and “personal,” and many said it drew them in even though they don’t cook and aren’t foodies.
