New ATK hosts announced

America's Test Kitchen cookbook

Late last year we reported about the shakeup at America's Test Kitchen that included Christopher Kimball's surprise departure. Jack Bishop became the Chief Creative Officer, but until today we didn't know who would take over hosting duties for the popular ATK programs. In a message shared via email and on the ATK website, Bishop announced that the new hosts of America's test kitchen would be long-time ATK alumni Julia Collin Davison and Bridget Lancaster.

Bishop acknowledged the long service of both women, noting that the pair "have been fixtures on the show since that first episode aired back in 2001. You know their cooking skills (they have prepared hundreds of recipes on air) as well as their deep knowledge of food. They are both so funny, smart, and passionate about our mission, which is to help you become a better cook. I'm excited to see Bridget and Julia in their roles." 

The women take over hosting duties as of the 2017 season. We'll continue to see Chris  Kimball this season as all episodes have already been filmed and distributed. Kimball will also continue to host America's Test Kitchen Radio. As for Cook's Country program, no announcement has been made yet, but Bishop reminds us to "stay tuned for upcoming news" about the show.
