This week on America’s Test Kitchen Radio, we speak with Dr. Alejandro Junger, the creator of the Clean Program, about the powerful effects of detoxification on the body and the mind. We’ll find out what’s hot and what’s not in the world of kitchen gadgets, and we’ll learn about tasting notes with Boston Globe wine critic Stephen Meuse. We’ll do a head-to-head tasting of our homemade brownie recipe versus the winning box mix, and we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make chewy sugar cookies. And of course we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
