Thanksgivukkah is in 9 days, and we bet you’ve got a tons of cooking questions. We’ll be here at 1:00 p.m EST to answer as many as we can. If we don’t have a chance to get to your question, our Cook’s Illustrated 2013 Thanksgiving Guide is pretty helpful, too: http://bit.ly/1cJ1OXp
Who are we?
I am Dan Souza /u/Dan_Souza (@testcook on Twitter)—I develop recipes, conduct food-science experiments, and worked on our Science of Good Cooking cookbook. I also like to drop heavy things on burgers in the name of science—on purpose: http://youtu.be/Js73-jseLnI
I am Lisa McManus /u/LisaMcManus —the “Gadget Guru" and Senior Editor of equipment testing and ingredient tasting. Imagine making 100 kale smoothies to test the quality of a blender, rigging up 15 grills to thermocouples to track heat retention over time, or toasting up to 50 loaves of bread to find a toaster that actually decently toasts bread. Here I am, setting things aflame in the search for the best home fire extinguisher: http://youtu.be/65I8PdPIJTw
Ask us anything.
P.S. To celebrate the launch of our newly designed websites—we're giving away the top 3 highest voted questions today a free one-year multi-site membership to CooksIllustrated.com, CooksCountry.com and AmericasTestKitchen.com.
Thanks for all the great cooking questions/comments, Lisa and Dan need to get back to the kitchen now—Happy Thanksgivukkah from America's Test Kitchen!
