The New Baking (#102H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

In this episode, host Christopher Kimball goes to London's Violet Bakery to visit with rising pastry star Claire Ptak. While there, he learns some of her baking techniques, such as under-whipping egg whites for a lighter cake. Back at Milk Street and in the kitchen, he puts that information to work, making chocolate, prune and rum cake with Milk Street Cook Matthew Card. Next up is Milk Street Cook Erika Bruce who shows Chris how to make a brown sugar tart with their foolproof single-crust pie dough. The show ends with Chris explaining how a Japanese baking technique coupled with a cornstarch paste ended his 30-year search for a prebaked pie crust that won't slump in the pan.

Homecooking, Chinese Style (#101H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Host Christopher Kimball visits world traveler and cookbook author Fuchsia Dunlop in London to learn about the Chinese approach to cooking.

Next, Chris demonstrates why an Asian cleaver just may have the edge over the ubiquitous western chef's knife. The show ends with a little sizzle on set as Milk Street Cook Matthew Card shows how to make hot oil-flashed chard with ginger, scallions and chili at home.

Tahini Rules! (#104H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Meatballs get a makeover as Milk Street Cook Rayna Jhaveri shows host Christopher Kimball how to make Turkish meatballs with lime-yogurt sauce.

Next, Milk Street Cook Catherine Smart shows Chris how to make Israeli hummus, while Rayna demonstrates a dressing that can perk up any vegetable: sweet-and-sour mint dressing. Rounding out the show, Milk Street Cook Erika Bruce show how versatile tahini, the sesame paste that is key to savory dishes like hummus, shines equally bright in their ultimate tahini swirl brownies.
