America's Test Kitchen Radio Debuts

Would You Listen to a Radio Cooking Show?

America's Test Kitchen RadioThis past weekend, right around the same time that Hungry Girl debuted on the Cooking Channel, the popular show America's Test Kitchen had a little premiere of its own — over the airwaves, that is. According to its creators, America's Test Kitchen Radio "applies the no-nonsense, first-hand testing approach of our TV show to the wide world of food, dining, and cooking — with your voices thrown into the mix." I gave the show's online stream a try, but without the visuals of a cookbook or a TV show, I couldn't get into the food and cooking. Can radio be a successful medium for food and cooking shows? Would you listen to America's Test Kitchen Radio?

i'd love it if it was presented well; i've heard people discussing food in various ways - cook shows, documentaries, interviews etc - over the radio (usually whilst i was visiting developing countries where radio is the primary means of...everything! or else on BBC world service) sometimes, without the distraction of the visuals, you understand more about the other aspects of food; however, it really has to be structured and presented well - and in my case, it's the sound and smell of food preparation and not the sight, which primarily grab my attention

Yeah, maybe. It's all kind of old-school, which I love!

I'm a fan of America's Test Kitchen and would give it a try. I'm just not that interested to go online and listen and I don't think it airs here in DC.

Isn't that what Narsi David used to do? Maybe he still does, it was on some bay area station like KGO or something that. It was a while ago that I listened and I enjoyed it.

I can barely watch Orville Redenbacher there on TV. I'd have somebody kick a fork into my forehead before I'd listen to him on the radio.

Oh my god, Becky, that's exactly what it made me think of! "And tomorrow, we'll be discussing...toast."

All I can think about is that SNL skit "Delicious Dish." Good times.

No.. I don't even enjoy TV cooking shows. I would much rather look at a picture and read any recipes and tips they have to offer. It's just a fantastic waste of time otherwise.

Listening to people talk about cooking sounds about as helpful as listening to someone talk about painting... no thanks!
