Mark your calendars for America’s Test Kitchen inaugural Boston Eats festival coming this fall. The two-day affair, scheduled for Friday, October 27th and Saturday, October 28th, brings heavy hitters from Boston’s culinary scene to ATK’s state-of-the-art headquarters and studios at the Seaport’s Innovation and Design Building. 21 Dry Dock Avenue.
Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin Davison get the party started on Friday with Taste of Innovation presented by Holland American Line, where some of Boston’s best chefs (oh, y’know chefs like Jody Adams, Tiffani Faison, Will Gilson, Tony Maws, Carla & Christine Pallotta, Jeremy Sewall and Michael Schlow) will pair up with America’s Test Kitchen’s on-screen talent to prepare two creative dishes using the same local ingredient.
Then on Saturday, it’s time for Boston Eats, an all-day event that includes cooking demonstrations, interactive panels, book signings, and tastings – so many tastings. They’re still bringing restaurants on board but so far, participants include: Area Four Boston, Babbo, Bambara, Bar Mezzana, Bistro du Midi, Capo, Citizen Public House, Coppersmith, Cultivar, Dante & il Casale, Doretta Taverna, Hojoko, La Morra, Loco Taqueria, MIDA, Post 390, SRV, The Table at Season to Taste and TRADE.
Saturday will also be your chance to scope out ATK’s new digs. The 55,000 square foot facility houses the sets for both America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country, the two top-rated instructional cooking shows on television. You can catch the whole ATK cast in action at an intimate cooking demonstration, part of Backstage ATK presented by Roche Bros. Home Delivery.
