This week on America’s Test Kitchen Radio, host Christopher Kimball interviews Molly Birnbaum. Birnbaum is the author of Season to Taste, a book about how she lost her sense of smell, and an editor at America’s Test Kitchen. We’ll be tasting lemon juice substitutes, and we’ll find out what’s hot and what’s not in the world of kitchen gadgets. Then we’ll travel back in time to discover the origins of lemon icebox cheesecake, and we’ll determine how to make the best scrambled eggs. And of course we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
