Happy Holidays from Our Kitchen to Yours

We're always thankful for our community of passionate home cooks. Here are a few of our favorite stories from them that demonstrate the power of food.

Published Nov. 23, 2017.

At America’s Test Kitchen, we create recipes because we love cooking. To us, it’s about more than putting food on the table (though we definitely have days like that). And aside from doing what we love in the test kitchen every day, the best part of our jobs is hearing from members of our community of like-minded home cooks who are always reminding us how rich and rewarding the world of cooking is.

We recently met two of these members of our community, Ken and Hilda, at our inaugural food festival, Boston Eats. We were able to learn more about them and organize a surprise meeting with some of the ATK family. We’re thankful for hearing stories like theirs—and from home cooks like you—today and every day.

And that's just one of the stories we've heard recently about how food and cooking have enriched our members' lives. We’d like to share a few others, sourced from our exclusive members Facebook page. Happy holidays from all of us here at America's Test Kitchen, and thank you for sharing your love of food with us!
