Christopher Kimball founded Cook’s Magazine in 1980 and served as publisher and editorial director through 1989. In 1993, Kimball re-launched Cook’s Magazine as Cook’s Illustrated and went on to found Cook’s Country magazine in 2004. Kimball hosted and executive produced the two highest-rated cooking shows on public (and cable) television: America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country.
Kimball also hosts Milk Street Radio, a weekly radio show (and podcast) broadcast on more than 300 stations nationwide. Kimball is the author of several books including, most recently, Fannie's Last Supper. In 2015, Kimball left America’s Test Kitchen to found a new company, Milk Street Kitchen, devoted to teaching home cooks fresher, better ways to prepare foods at home.
