This week on America’s Test Kitchen Radio, we investigate the school lunch debate and talk to the people that are working to improve school lunch in their communities. We’ll check in with our science expert, Guy Crosby, to find out why it’s important to let meat rest before serving. We’ll be tasting chocolate ice cream, and head into the test kitchen to learn how to make perfect pan-seared chicken breasts. And of course we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
