Food Nerds: America’s Test Kitchen/Cook’s Country Come To Seattle To Par-Tay In November


America’s Test Kitchen hosts Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin Davison are coming to Seattle in November!

Salivation begin….NOW.

Food nerds who enjoy watching cooking shows on PBS have long been aware of the joys of America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Illustrated/Cook’s Country, the Boston based food/cookery magazines that have also produced highly watchable television series for the last billion years. Yes, founder, chief host and beloved Yankee curmudgeon Christopher Kimball is now gone from the empire he created (long sordid story that boils down to ‘creative differences’ after he sold the empire to outsiders…) but it still lives on with equally beloved hosts Julia Collin Davison and Bridget Lancaster.

The ATK and Cook’s team are now headed our way for TWO big events in early November. On Friday, November 2 the Cook’s Illustrated 25th Birthday Bash takes over Block 41 on Bell Street followed by the the ATK Seattle EATS Festival the following day, Saturday, November 3rd at Bell Harbor/Pier 66 down on the waterfront (the two venues are just a few blocks apart actually). 

Go HERE to buy individual tickets (regular and VIP) plus special tickets for both events. And, here’s more poo:


Cook’s Illustrated 25th Birthday Bash

The year was 1993… Nirvana and Pearl Jam shifted the country’s music epicenter, Boston’s Cheers gave way to Seattle’s FrasierSleepless in Seattle paired Tom and Meg for the first time, and a very different cooking magazine hit newsstands. It featured an oil painting of spring produce on its cover, tips on how to zest citrus and shop for the best eggplant, a guide to breaking down poultry, and recipes for, among other things, flaky biscuits, roast chicken, and grilled pizza peppered throughout its 32 pages. It cost 4 dollars and contained no advertising.

Let’s party like it’s 1993, see how Cook’s Illustrated changed home cooking since, and what’s ahead for the next 25 years.
