Christopher Kimball's new gig

Hey, all. As you may remember, Christopher Kimball left America's Test Kitchen last year (or early this year? Anyway...) He's started a new TV show and newsletter with recipes and videos. Looks interesting: Milk Street Kitchen

Quote:
What is Milk Street Kitchen?

Its a place 177 Milk Street in downtown Boston. Its also a cooking school, a kitchen, the set of our new TV show, and the place where we create the recipes that we call The New Home Cooking.

Hmmm. I always enjoyed Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin Davison. Had to use google to remember their full names though. Never much of a fan of the Kimball character but I'll keep an open mind on the new show. This is the first I'd heard of him leaving. Wish all of them well.

The man contributed little to ATK shows other than the ever present "Mmmmm" when he tasted a dish.

They, along with Becky Hays are the talent on that show as well as Cooks Country.

Pretty much a useless persona, with no talent.

Hmmm, maybe I should have said he left his job as editor of Cooks Illustrated I rarely watch the show, but I love the magazine. I imagine he had a lot to with planning and producing the show.

He was never a cook, and his Vermont country boy persona was a fraud too. I always did like the show though, in spite of him.

GG, the website sounds like it can be a promising rabbit hole. Still, for the science of it all, I think I've given my heart over to Kenji. He and Kimball both explore the why things work in the kitchen fairly equally, but Kenji just seems like the guy I would want to share that dish at my table. Kimball? Not so much.

Himself said Kimball's usefulness was in allowing himself to be dressed up as a banana or strawberry.

I had to laugh at some of the responses about CK.....I didn't even know he could cook.

I absolutely agree. I mentioned it because I thought some people here might be interested. I guess not

I've been seeing this promoted on Face Book as a "suggested site" for the past week. Not too sure about it, but I'll keep an open mind. Cook's Illustrated, America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Country have been a part of my kitchen for many years. As a former recipe tester, I've enjoyed them all.
