This week on America’s Test Kitchen Radio, we explore what it takes to make it as a restaurant chef. We’ll find out what’s hot and what’s not in the world of kitchen gadgets, and we’ll travel back in time to discover the origins of strawberry pie. We’ll be tasting baking chocolate, and we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make vodka pie crust. And of course we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
