From the desk of Christopher Kimball
Dear Home Cook,
September in Vermont is special and not just because of the weather or the advent of hunting season. It’s the time when I spend two weeks filming Cook’s Country TV, an experience akin to summer camp except that the food is a whole lot better! We get to see old friends, including our long-standing TV crew; we have a movie night (projected on the wall of the horse barn); and many of us end up at the local bar after work to watch Red Sox games, especially if they are still in the pennant race.
But for those of you who can’t join us in person at Cook’s Country TV, here is a personal invitation.
In order to give you immediate access to what we do at Cook’s Country, I am announcing the launch of our new website at CooksCountry.com. Watch the TV show, search for recipes, find testings and tastings, and do it all on your schedule, on demand.
The new CooksCountry.com brings all things Cook’s Country together in one spot. It is the only place where you’ll find every recipe, equipment rating, and taste test that has ever been in Cook’s Country magazine plus every episode of our Cook’s Country television show (never before available online). You can click here to visit the new site, or you can start a free two-week trial.
You can search our recipe database, including tastings and testings. You can browse using filters (Italian, Beef, Make Ahead, Light, Slow Cooker, etc.) to get new ideas for supper. You can also search by one of the magazine’s departments, such as Great American Cakes, Cooking for Two, Recipe Makeover, or Equipment Review.
We have also designed the site to be extremely useful for cooks. Recipes appear on the same page as the video player so that you can watch us make the recipe while you make it for dinner.
Speaking of cooking, CooksCountry.com is jam-packed with step-by-step color photos so that you can see each and every step in vivid detail. We have also provided dozens of menus to help you organize everything from a weekday supper to a holiday dinner. (Menu planning is not my strong suit so I appreciate all the help I can get!) Plus, you can save your favorite recipes, taste tests, equipment reviews, and videos to “My Favorites,” create your own menus online, and print out a shopping list organized by type of ingredient and bring it with you to the store.
I admit that I don’t watch much television, but when I do watch a video, it is always on demand, whether it’s from streaming Netflix or the new Amazon Prime Instant Videos. With the new Cook’s Country website, you will be able to watch any episode (or any segment) from any season on demand whenever it suits your schedule. Do a quick search or browse, and then you can watch Bridget make the world’s best Raspberry Chiffon Pie, the best Sunday gravy, great BBQ recipes, or any number of fabulous, hard-to-find lost desserts, from Chocolate Blackout Cake to a simple but delicious Lemon Pudding Cake. It’s all there for you whenever you have a few minutes and an appetite!

I love the country: the people, the landscape, the history, and most of all the food. Now you can visit Cook’s Country anytime you want without getting on a plane or in a car. It’s as close as your computer keyboard.
We invite you to visit the site today where you can register for free recipes or you can start a 14-day free trial for access to the entire archive. Enjoy the show, enjoy the recipes, and enjoy visiting with us whenever you have a free moment. We’ll leave the porch light on and set aside a warm bowl of Joe Booker Stew (beef stew with dumplings), with a nice slice of Shaker Lemon Pie to boot. See you soon in Cook’s Country!
