With more than a million paid readers, Cook's Illustrated has stood the test of time and distinguished itself among the pack by having a singular focus--developing recipes that work the first time and every time; it's as simple as that.
Christopher Kimball founded Cook's Magazine, a national magazine for cooking hobbyists, in 1980 and served as publisher and editorial director through 1989. In 1984, Chris founded the Who's Who of Cooking in America, which was initiated to honor America's leading chefs, restaurateurs, vintners, food writers, and food producers. Chris relaunched Cook's Magazine as Cook's Illustrated in 1993 and founded Cook's Country. Chris serves as publisher and editor of both magazines. Chris is also the host of America's Test Kitchen, a public television cooking show now in its eleventh season. He is also the host and executive producer of the new TV show Cook's Country from America's Test Kitchen. Chris is a regular contributor to The Today Show and has been featured in many publications, including The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, People magazine, The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, and The Los Angeles Times. He was inducted into the Who's Who of Food and Beverage in America in 1996. Chris is the author of The Cook's Bible, The Yellow Farmhouse Cookbook, Dear Charlie (a Christopher Award winner), The Dessert Bible, The Kitchen Detective, and Fannie's Last Supper. He lives in Boston and Vermont.
