Series: America's Test Kitchen from Cook's Illustrated
AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN FROM COOK'S ILLUSTRATED launches season 17 on January 14, 2017 with new hosts Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin Davison. Bridget and Julia have been fixtures on the show from the very beginning, sharing their cooking skills and deep knowledge of food with viewers over the hundreds of recipes they’ve prepared on air as test cooks. The skilled duo lead a team of test cooks as they deconstruct recipes and reveal the test kitchen’s secrets to foolproof cooking at home.
This season, newcomers Elle Simone, Keith Dresser, and Tim Chin join veteran test cooks Dan Souza and Becky Hays, and Cook's Country's Erin McMurrer to master such dishes as grilled pizza, baked Alaska, chicken and sausage gumbo and more. The series also features the popular segments viewers know and love.
In "The Tasting Lab," returning expert Jack Bishop challenges Bridget and Julia to taste-test supermarket staples before revealing the series' top food recommendations. Then, equipment tester Adam Ried takes the hosts through an exhaustive and unbiased search for the best kitchen items in "Equipment Corner." Meanwhile, in "Gadgets Galore," Lisa McManus reviews her favorite gadgets and reveals which ones are worth the cost—or not.
