Rich excerpts feature the origins of celebrated cheeses, the nuances of different wine growing regions, the best farmer’s markets in Venice, and more. Intriguing prose illuminates key ingredients, from olive oil and how it’s made to the various pasta shapes of Northern Italy. In every region, the food experts at America’s Test Kitchen bring it all home, with foolproof recipes for standout dishes as well as hidden gems. America’s Test Kitchen is a 15,000-square-foot kitchen located in Boston Seaport District. It is the home of Cook’s Illustrated magazine and Cook’s Country magazine, the public television shows America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country from America’s Test Kitchen, and the online America’s Test Kitchen Cooking School.

Also coming on for our 100th episode will be Joanna Saltz the editorial director of Delish.com to talk about new cookbook “Delish: Eat Like Every Day’s the Weekend” from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Delish is the fastest-growing food media brand on the internet. They’ve carved a unique niche in the food landscape because the editors are food-lovers first, and home cooks second – not professional chefs. Their how-to food videos have garnered up to 15 billion views! Delish.com speaks to food lovers who don’t fancy themselves chefs—and they do it through helpful, shareable recipes that are as fun to watch as they are to make. Now, they’ve crammed all of that insanity and entertainment into their first-ever cookbook. Inside, you’ll find more than 275 recipes and ideas that are meant to be devoured, not perfected. Joanna Saltz was previously the executive editor of Food Network Magazine and Seventeen Magazine, and is a long-time Diet Coke addict. Sounds like fun to us!
