From the porch of the "Cook's Country" farmhouse, Kimball introduces educational "Food History" segments about the origins of certain regional recipes. Jack Bishop challenges Kimball to taste - and rank - blue cheese dressing, frozen French fries, egg noodles and other supermarket staples in front of a live studio audience. Adam Ried, the test kitchen's resident equipment expert, takes Kimball through his unbiased equipment recommendations for the home cook - from cookie sheets to salad spinners and other household items. Each episode includes a "Cooking Class" featuring Kimball and Lancaster sharing practical test kitchen tips and techniques. This season, they cover buying fish, cleaning a grill and hard-cooking eggs.
