Now that I’ve purchased most “all” of your cookbooks and subscription to your magazines, I’m happy to say that the “Behind the scenes video” was a delight!
It’s great to see your interaction with your employee’s….I’m sure they have a “lot” of fun working with you! Keep them coming!
I follow your TV shows religously, so informative….I’m in the habit of checking with your site(s) before I purchase most products for my kitchen!
Oh you guys make me laugh even when your not blooping so that was EXTRA funny! I never miss an episode of either of your shows on Channel 13 and even bought my stand mixer based on your test and recommendation on America’s Test Kitchen – a Kitchen Aid Classic Plus , yes it is fabulous! Boy I wish I had a job working with you – if you ever need another “tester” I will come from Texas to help 🙂 and we can share a “bear” 😉
I love the bloopers almost as much as getting all your good information on the shows! And I needed to leave a comment to thank you for such great shows and so I could see what quilt square pattern I got next to my comment! I love quilts and quilting!
How fun is this? My 13 year old and I watch and tape the shows religiously. We cook the dishes religiously. We have commented to each other how perfectly the building of each recipe seems to go. Kudos to your video editors! And thanks for letting us peek into the production process. We will hope for more of this… helps us to see that what goes on in our kitchen at home is reality!
I NEVER cook. If it can’t be nuked, I’m not interested. But I watch your show all the time (okay, the digital conversion erased all the broadcast stations and I’m too cheap to pay for cable) but I am totally faithful to you now. You aren’t Martha-smug, or patronizing in pearls (in the KITCHEN-sheesh!) You’re fun even WITHOUT the bloopers. I may consider actually cooking after I retire. (No need to rush into life changes.) But even though I am a source of endless amusement to my gourmet friends, your show FASCINATES me! Thanks guys.
Betsy, we must have been separated at birth…LOL! I also have a converter box (and hardly ever cook outside of the nukerowave), and I never miss the cooking shows on PBS – especially Cook’s Country and ATK! I’ve watched some of them so many times that I could probably cook the recipes myself (my favorite is the pulled pork sandwiches)!
I enjoy the letters from Vermont, but I really enjoyed the bloopers. Looks like you have a good time and a good working relationship, like I would enjoy working there. (But not on TV) I especially appreciated Bridgette trying to loosen the mixing bowl. I know what that is like.
I’ve just read your descriptive letter about your fabulous Victorian dinner, your day of hunting, viewed your video of the picturesque Vermont countryside…and laughed with you as I watched your delightful Cook’s Country Bloopers. I’ve been a regular viewer for a long time and an early subscriber to Cook’s Illustrated…and use your fine cook books…you all seem like “old friends”…so I want to thank you for this pre-Thanksgiving treat!
With appreciation and best wishes to you all…Jean
Thank you for your letter, & your video of the picturesque countryside. I’ve laughed with you as I watched your delightful Bloopers! After all these years, you all seem like “old Friends”…so want to thank you for this pre-Thanksgiving treat!!
With appreciation and best wishes to you all…
If I weren’t such an upstanding professional adult I’d be a screaming fangirl. Your works are wonderful and the blooper reels help me feel less like an upstanding professional doofus. Thank you… please post more!
This was the first time that I watched “a”, a video,and then, the bloopers. Now that I have returned from the outhouse, [I have not had so much laughter], I will put this in my favorites. All kidding aside, I enjoy the Vermont humor, and “feel good” stories. Old auto mechanics would seldom admit this. I wish Sue and I could move there tommorrow! But then again, what would you do with a real mechanic, and cosmetollogy teacher from Kenosha, Wisconsin?[Though we do have deer here.]
I’ve worked in many restaurants over the years and, while you guys are tame by comparison, I laughed my a** off! Thank you for showing the truth about cooking under pressure and sharing your personalities. it was a joy to watch and MORE bloopers please!
You should include the bloopers into the DVDs. It’s nice to see you guys do make mistake instead of always perfect result every time. This is one thing I liked about Julia’s shows. She showed us that mistakes in the kitchen was ok.
Thank you for your bloopers. You brought smiles and giggles into my home this Thanksgiving Day – now I am ready to salt pork and cheescloth soaked in water my turkey. Wish me luck!!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Loved the whole thing, you look so handsome without the bow tie, so life like, not so cartoonish. Love the mag but can’t afford it right now as my hours have been cut in half, some of my luxuries had to go.
Keep up the good work, I would apply for a job if I lived in Vermont.
My husband and I NEVER miss your show – we tape every episode and have watched some more than once. We have many, many recipes that we have tried, loved and use them over and over. Also, we have bought gadget recommended by your show and they ARE the best we’ve had. Thanks for sharing the deer video, bloopers, recipes and I love the magazine. There’s something calming and mesmerizing about the show – love watching – keep sending us good ideas. Thanks!
I am glad to see I am not the only one that says
sh%* when I goof up in the kitchen. Also, I made the barded turkey for Thanksgiving. DELICIOUS!! The best turkey we have ever eaten. I regret not taking a pic of it. It was so pretty I did not want to carve it. I also made the golden cornbread dressing and garlic mashed potatoes cooked in the half/half and water instead of preboiling. Today we had hot turkey sandwiches and used the left over Amercian dinner rolls for the bread part of the sandwich. We have quite a few rolls left so tomorrow we will see how they do as French toast. Thanks for all the great recipes and ATK/CC TV shows.
Hi Chris, got to say this, I love watching America’s Test Kitchen and Cooks Country. I am not a cook myself, however I love watching cooking shows. One quick question for you, so far this season I haven’t seen Julia Collin-Davison on any of the episodes, it been mostly all Bridget Lancaster, which is fine, is Julia still with the show?.
Do you welcome visitors to your test kitchens, filming, studios, etc? We love everything you do and wish for the best…visiting.
Your TV shows are the best and the Cook’s Country pub is a treasure of information.
One of the most interesting was the Vodka in pie dough. It really works.
I am still experimenting with Ciabatta at 6123 ft. elevation in Colorado.
loved it!!! bet ya can’t keep your hands still while talking. I love the show, but your hands always moving distracts me. just wish I could have sugar. then I might be able to enjoy some of the goodies, like the sticky cinnamon buns. yumm yumm!!!!
What a hoot! Never thought I’d see the bunch of you in such a personal way – may bloopers never die!! I tend to use ‘that’ word as well as telling myself off when I make a mistake. I’ve used some of your recipes and at Christmas made the triple chocolate mousse cake.(x2) We have a medium sized family (24)with 3 absent and everyone loved it. Keep up the good work and have fun!
I love blooper reels; I’ve seen them occasionally on the credit roll at the end of the program, but this makes for a nice collection. Heck, you should put a whole bunch of them on a dvd so we can have them for posterity..
I cannot believe my precious girls on Cooks Country actually say the “S” word. Oh, golly, I just love you guys to bits. I think you should make the show an hour long and include all of the bloopers…..how fun would that be????
I was looking thru my ole magazines today and ran across the Cooks Country (june/July-2011), then ask my husband if he had seen any other Cooks Country Magazines come here since. Neither of us have seen any. I sent a check that was paid at my bank dated 8-4-2011 for $39.90 for a 2year subscription! Will you please forward me the issues I have not received and check as to why I am not receiving them. I will be looking for your reply to my e-mail address at email@example.com.
