America's Test Kitchen (ATK) - mag v. show

I see the show is hardly on anymore; is the magazine similar to their show ?

They show two episodes every Sat here. Yes the mag is similar to the show. They deconstruct recipes and review food and kitchen tools.

I don't have a clue what ATK is either - it would probably come to me if I thought about it but my head hurts too much to think.

I'm sorry.

America's Test Kitchen. The PBS cooking show. They also have a magazine, Cook's Illustrated.

And their cookbooks are like the PBS show, too - at least the two I have. They discuss what was wrong with the original version, what they tried (and what things did or did not work - and why), and the final recipe solution to come up with what they consider to be The Best ....

That's because there is no advertising. At least beyond their own. So your subscription has to cover all the costs when a normal magazine is loaded with advertising to defray the costs.
