America’s Test Kitchen is the most-watched instructional cooking program on television, and it attracts more viewers than any program on Food Network or the Cooking Channel.* The show is filmed in a 2,500-square-foot test kitchen just outside Boston and is the workday home of more than 50 test cooks, food scientists, and product testers. Each episode features recipes that have been tested 20, 30, and sometimes 50 times or more until they are foolproof and guaranteed to work for you the first time. A cast of test cooks familiar to millions of home cooks solve everyday cooking problems, test equipment so you never have to waste money on gadgets that don’t work, and taste supermarket ingredients to save you time at the store. It’s a commonsense, practical approach that you won’t find on other cooking shows.
Season 16 features 26 episodes and 57 all-new recipes, including “Saucing Up Chicken and Roasting Mushrooms” (Quick Sauces for Sautéed Chicken and Roasted Mushrooms with Parmesan and Pine Nuts), “Why Not Add Wine?” (Coq au Riesling and Tuscan-Style Beef Stew), “New York Natives” (Foolproof New York Cheesecake and New York Bagels), “Ultimate Chinese” (Mu Shu Pork and Crispy Orange Beef), and “Revolutionizing Classic Fruit Desserts” (Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie and Cherry Clafouti).
