America’s Test Kitchen Comes to The Wilbur

WHAT:             On Thursday, March 5th, 2015, America’s Test Kitchen is coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.

JOIN CHRISTOPHER KIMBALL for a behind-the-scenes tour of America’s Test Kitchen. Find out the secrets of recipe testing and how we rate equipment, perform taste tests, and investigate the science of cooking. Participants also get a private tour of how we film our two public television shows. You’ll witness some of our most embarrassing TV moments, from the Yule log disaster to the smoking TODAY show segment that almost summoned the fire department.

AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN LIVE ALSO INCLUDES an on-stage chocolate taste test with audience members, two live science experiments, and a live “sniff” test to see if participants can identify what they smell. We introduce—through our public radio show—some of our favorite guests, including Mary Roach (author of Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal), and a radio tribute to Julia Child featuring personal reminisces from those who knew her best. Audience members are also encouraged to ask questions and we end the evening with a live Q & A session.

ATK LIVE IS THE NEXT BEST THING to actually working at America’s Test Kitchen! VIP tickets are available that include a post-show meet and greet and a signed copy of one of Christopher’s latest books.

Christopher Kimball is the founder and editor of Cook’s Illustrated and host of America’s Test Kitchen. America’s Test Kitchen is the number-one lifestyle show on public television. ATK publishes both Cook’s Illustrated and Cook’s Country magazines.
