His public television show features a science-like attention to detail and fans of his mostly black-and-white magazine have come to expect lovingly-rendered pencil drawings of eggplant.
Now, Christopher Kimball is bringing that same no-nonsense delivery to radio! Kimball, whom Slate Magazine calls, “deliciously square,” is launching a new series of call-in shows and VPR will air this trial run as part of our VPR Saturday Special.
With decades of Cook’s Illustrated publications and “Cook’s Country” TV episodes under his apron strings, Kimball strives to help you find the best equipment, the best ingredients and the best recipes on this brand new program.
The first episode features Kimball’s visit to a cafeteria in Dorset, Vermont, to investigate school lunches. He also takes on the not-so-terrible task of tasting chocolate ice cream.
And fear not! Your favorite VPR cooking and call-in show, “The Splendid Table,” is not going anywhere! VPR will continue to air "The Splendid Table," at noon on Saturdays!
Your feedback regarding this new program is vital. Give "America's Test Kitchen" a listen and tell us what you think. The VPR Saturday Special begins this Saturday at 4 on VPR and at VPR-dot-net.
