During this episode, Rachelle chats with Bryan Roof, star of the popular PBS show and Executive Food Editor for series of magazines, “Cook’s Country” an America’s Test Kitchen brand. As an ensemble star and Editor, Bryan travels all around the U.S. to find and taste truly local American dishes. He then brings his knowledge back to the test kitchen to try to perfect local recipes for inclusion on the show and within the magazine. He’s often hosted by local fans and families that want to show him the “real” hometown cuisine and Bryan has some great stories to share about his travels.
He just returned from a trip to North Carolina in search of fried chicken (I’m super jealous) and other local fare like fish stew and cheese biscuits. He’ll take what he’s learned back to the America’s Test Kitchen team to create the perfect Carolina fried chicken recipe.
