America’s Test Kitchen on Holland America Ships

I watch and enjoy many cooking shows but truth be told I never even try to make 99% of the dishes that are featured! Too much time, too many ingredients, and a husband that is afraid to try anything new are just some of the obstacles I face.  Maybe that’s why I absolutely love America's Test Kitchen.  They focus on the real stuff…the recipes you make when you rush in the door at 6PM to face a hungry family! The show develops and perfects these recipes so they'll give you the best results every single time.

So when it was announced that Holland America Line would be transforming it’s shipboard Culinary Arts Center to replicate the television set where America’s Test Kitchen TV shows are recorded I was pretty excited! Designed specifically for Holland America Line, the shipboard shows will be hosted by Holland America Line chefs trained by America’s Test Kitchen culinary experts.

Here’s why I agree:
