America’s Test Kitchen, Sundays at 11 am on KUAC3

America’s Test KitchenKUAC3 now carries AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN, a weekly one-hour radio show for cooks or those who aspire to be cooks! Airing Sundays from 11 am-noon, listen in on America’s Test Kitchen, a real 2,500 square foot test kitchen located just outside of Boston that is home to more than three-dozen full-time cooks and product testers. Their mission is simple: to develop the absolute best recipes for all of your favorite foods. To do this, each recipe is tested 30, 40, sometimes as many as 70 times, until the combination of ingredients, technique, temperature, cooking time, and equipment yields the best, most-foolproof recipe. Host Chris Kimball applies his no-nonsense, first-hand testing approach to radio, and its sister television program (find it on KUAC Create TV), both airing on public radio and television stations around the country including KUAC. It is just one of the many weekly programs available on KUAC3 online, KUAC HD3 or KUAC TV 9.7.
