There are 10 comments on Inside America’s Test Kitchen with David Nussbaum (COM’79)

  1. I really miss Chris Kimball (he will always have a very high Q score with me), but the recipes are so good, Julia and Bridgett so competent and entertaining in their own right and Jack and Adam so much fun to watch that I could never be a member of the group Nussbaum suggests might not give the show a chance.

  2. I am so sick and tired of America’s test kitchen and cook’s country. Those girls are so unprofessional. I refuse to watch it any more.

  3. I agree with some of the commentators in that I really miss Chris Kimball at ATK. while Julia and Bridgett were great side hosts to Chris but are just ok as main hosts They don’t have the natural ease and gravitas of Chris. They seem scripted, even at their attempts at humor. It was a big mistake to let Chris go. The CEO and the founder should have tried to find meaningful ways to enlarge the brand (no, cooking shows on cruise ships is not the answer) and still keep Chris at the helm of the shows.

  4. Bridgett and Julia are great presenters they are like next door neighbors showing you a recipe,Jack and Adam know their stuff.
    I always learn something from them. I liked Chris as well but Milk street has to many odd recipes and odd ingredients.
