TV Cooking Series Information

KQED Cooking/Food Series

Below, in alphabetical order, is information about the availability of companion cookbooks, recipes and/or videos for the cooking series currently airing on KQED.

Whether or not a cooking series has a website, or whether individual recipes are published on a website is a decision made by each show's producers, not KQED or PBS. If a cooking series has a web site, then it's hyperlinked below.

Many PBS cooking series post only a few sample recipes on their websites, due to copyright restrictions in the contract for the cookbook's publication. Also, cookbook sales help recover some of the production costs for the TV shows.


America's Test Kitchen From Cook's Illustrated
Companion Cookbooks: 1.800.274.9988
Video: DVDs available from 800# above
Recipes: Currently, only recipes from seasons 13 and 14 are available on the free ATK website. All recipes from prior seasons of the series have been moved to the Cook's Illustrated website, which requires a paid annual subscription. To determine which season a show belongs to, check the schedule for the day you saw the program on KQED, and note the episode number for the show. The first two digits indicates the season (ie., 1306 is from the 13th season, 1413 is from the 14th season).
