America's Test Kitchen - Season 16

Review provided by Hoopla

America's Test Kitchen is the most-watched cooking show on public television - nearly 2 million viewers tune in each week. The show is filmed just outside of Boston. Each episode features recipes carefully developed to make sure they work every time. Christopher Kimball and the test cooks solve everyday cooking problems, test equipment so you never have to waste money on gadgets that don't work, and taste supermarket ingredients to save you time at the store. It's a common sense, practical approach that you won't find on other cooking shows.

What's Really in Our Food? - Season 3

Review provided by Hoopla

Here's a lively and very valuable series that investigates the food we eat, exploring where it comes from and how it is made, demystifying the science, testing the ingredients and translating the labels. The program offers a guide on what to eat to improve physical and mental performance and what to avoid, from pesticides to superbugs and plastic residues. Each episode takes an up close look at a food, and addresses the questions – what is going to give us the most nutritional benefit? Is there a health risk? How much is too much? It features international food experts – leading medical professionals, scientists and nutritionists – who unravel the processes involved in the production of our food. Presented by Petra Bagust and Carolyn Robinson in a lively, entertaining style, this is essential viewing for anyone who eats!
