Cook’s Country features some of the best regional home cooking in the country and relies on the same practical, no-nonsense food approach that has made Cook’s Country magazine so successful. Filmed in a renovated 1806 farmhouse, Cook’s Country is where family-friendly recipes are scientifically re-imagined for the modern home cook. In season nine, the series uncovers blue-ribbon regional specialties from across the country – such as shrimp and grits, Brunswick stew, and Tennessee pulled pork sandwiches on hoecakes – and tackles classic American fare in need of a makeover, including bacon-wrapped meatloaf, husk-grilled corn, and old-fashioned vanilla frozen custard. Jack Bishop continues to challenge host Chris Kimball to live tastings of kitchen staples such as hard cider, shredded coconut, brown rice and more, while Adam Ried reveals the test kitchen’s top choices for equipment, including potholders, splatter screens and pizza cutters. The half-hour series also features short documentary segments on the history of American food, with some of the favorites explored: New Orleans muffulettas, pork grillades, French coconut pie, zeppoles and puffy tacos.
