America’s Test Kitchen is the most-watched instructional cooking program on television, and it attracts more viewers than any program on Food Network or the Cooking Channel.* The show is filmed in a 2,500-square-foot test kitchen just outside Boston and is the workday home of more than 50 test cooks, food scientists, and product testers. Each episode features recipes that have been tested 20, 30, and sometimes 50 times or more until they are foolproof and guaranteed to work for you the first time. A cast of test cooks familiar to millions of home 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 commonsense, practical approach that you won’t find on other cooking shows.

In September, Kimball had just finished taping the ninth season of another show, Cook’s Country, at his home in Vermont when Nussbaum was hired to fill a newly created role as the CEO of America’s Test Kitchen. Nussbaum left his job leading F+W Media to take the post.

America’s Test Kitchen features several recurring cast members, although not every cast member appears in each episode. Julia Collin Davison (identified on-screen before season 7 as “Julia Collin”), Bridget Lancaster, Kay Rentschler, Rebecca “Becky” Hays, Sandra Wu, Yvonne Ruperti, J. Kenji Alt (now J. Kenji Lopez-Alt), Erika Bruce, Bryan Roof and Dan Souza are the chefs who explain and prepare the recipes in each episode as Kimball watches and comments. Yvonne Ruperti and J. Kenji Lopez-Alt departed the company in 2011 and 2009 respectively. Usually only one or two of the chefs will appear in an episode. Collin-Davison, Lancaster and Rentschler appeared as regular cast members on season 1. Since, Rentschler moved to the positions of Culinary Producer and Executive Chef by season 2 and appeared in only one episode that season, before leaving the show by Season 3. Hays joined the permanent cast in season 5, Bruce, Wu, and Ruperti each appear for a single season (seasons 5, 6, and 8, respectively), and Alt appears in seasons 7 and 8. All are prominent recipe testers or editors in Cook’s Illustrated. Beginning in season 5, Cook’s Illustrated staff chefs Hays, Bruce, Jeremy Sauer, and Matthew Card appeared in segments answering common viewer mail questions. Hays, Bruce, and Sauer joined the on-camera cast for season 6; Hays moved into credited cast member status beginning in season 7. Roof and Souza were added to the regular cast starting season 15.

“Kimball’s departure is immediate,” says the Boston Common Press, the parent company of America’s Test Kitchen, which says the two sides weren’t able to agree over Kimball’s contract. Kimball, 64, is also leaving his spot as the editor-in-chief of Cook’s Illustrated magazine.

“America’s Test Kitchen has been in tumult in recent weeks, with rumors flying after a staff meeting and an earlier e-mail regarding coming changes.
