Podcasts are my new running companion. I thought I would miss the beat but found the discussion on topics of interest to be more of a motivator than music. Constantly seeking nutritious food, new interpretations on basic meals, and easily prepared international dishes, I get stoked with narratives on all things cuisine. Fortunately, there are newcomers and longtime broadcasters who have some exceptional podcasts focusing on the world of food, recipes, cooking tips, trends, and interviews with chefs and innovators.
America’s Test Kitchen is a real 2,500 square foot test kitchen located just outside of Boston that is home to more than three-dozen full-time cooks and product testers. Their mission is to develop the absolute best recipes for all of our favorite foods. To do this, they test each recipe 30, 40, sometimes as many as 70 times, until we arrive at the combination of ingredients, technique, temperature, cooking time, and equipment that yields the best, most-foolproof recipe.
