Senior Kitchen Assistant, Shopper America's Test Kitchen

  • Date Posted June 24, 2019
  • Location Boston, MA
  • Category Culinary / Media
  • Job type Full-Time
Company description America’s Test Kitchen is a real place: a no-nonsense, fully equipped test kitchen located in the heart of the Seaport district of Boston, Massachusetts. Our space includes a state-of-the-art 15,000 sq. ft. test kitchen, featuring 44 burners, 34 ovens, and more than enough elbow room for our 60+ test cooks and editors to test and tweak their recipes. The goal? To develop the best recipes and cooking techniques, recommend the best cookware and equipment, and rate brand-name pantry staples for home cooks, which are published in our two magazines, Cook’s Illustrated and Cook’s Country, in our growing line of cookbooks and special interest magazines, and on our websites, as well as featured on our public television series, America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country from America’s Test Kitchen. We are devoted to a collegial approach to cooking—teams of editors, writers, and cooks engage in side-by- side comparisons, blind taste tests, and rigorous equipment tests to determine which is the best way to roast a chicken, which pans work and which ones don’t, which brand of ketchup tastes best, and so on. Our publications contain no advertising. We are a private company with no affiliations with large publishers, cookware manufacturers, or food purveyors, which means that our content is unbiased and objective.  Over the years we've grown from a few ambitious souls to a group of 200+ (add one more if you join us).
