“America’s Test Kitchen” Twentieth Anniversary TV Show Cookbook

To celebrate the 20th America’s Test Kitchen is counting down the show’s top 20 recipes of all time. In ATK All-Time Best Recipes: 20th Anniversary Special, they’re keeping the focus on the food that has made the show a fan favorite for 500+ episodes and bringing you closer than ever to the cast that makes it all happen.

Emotional, nostalgic, and (as always) filled to the brim with practical home cooking takeaways, this delicious hour of television features four brand-new recipe segments, new testimonials from every member of the cast (including four of the original Season 1 cast members), behind-the-scenes access to the series that reveals all-new sausage-making secrets, and playful archives from the show’s extensive 20-season catalog.

Over the course of the hour, they present the top 20 recipes one by one in reverse order. Cast members take turns introducing their favorite recipes to cook at home and sharing personal anecdotes that illustrate what each recipe means to them.

The four original cast members—Bridget Lancaster, Julia Collin Davison, Jack Bishop, and Adam Ried—cook their four favorite recipes. That’s right: Twenty seasons was all it took to get Jack and Adam behind the cooktops! We’ll also hear from our fans—this special features touching fan-submitted videos about what ATK means to them and how the show has improved their lives.
