Please join us for an evening with Christopher Kimball as he discusses the latest Cook's Illustrated endeavor, The Science of Good Cooking.
In this radical new approach to home cooking, America's Test Kitchen uses science to explain what goes on in the kitchen. Unlike other food science books, they make a direct and practical connection between the science and the cooking. The Science of Good Cooking is divided into 50 core principles, which are supported through detailed yet friendly explanations, bring them alive with color illustrations and inventive experiments, and reinforced through recipes that put the principle to work. At Cook's Illustrated, they have been asking "why" in the kitchen for over 20 years and The Science of Good Cooking shows the science in their answers. Good science makes great food, and understanding basic science will make you a great cook.
Christopher Kimball founded Cook's Magazine, a national magazine for cooking hobbyists, in 1980 and served as publisher and editorial director through 1989. Christopher relaunched Cook's Magazine as Cook's Illustrated in 1993 and founded Cook's Country, and serves as publisher and editor of both magazines. He is also the host of and executive producer of public television cooking shows America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Country from America’s Test Kitchen. He lives in Boston and Vermont.
