America’s Test Kitchen Kids dedicated to instructing and inspiring the next generation of cooks
America’s Test Kitchen (ATK) has launched a new multi-media brand dedicated to instructing and inspiring the next generation of empowered cooks, engaged eaters, and curious experimenters. America’s Test Kitchen Kids features kid-tested and kid-approved content, including cookbooks, board books, picture books, digital products and comprehensive video programming. The brand uses food to create natural—and delicious—hands-on activities that teach about STEAM: science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics.
This month, America’s Test Kitchen Kids launched its website, www.ATKkids.com. The new, free site is designed to inspire excitement and experimentation in the kitchen for kids ages 8 to 13, and features kid-tested and kid-approved recipes, experiments, fun quizzes and trivia. Recipes include everything from homemade rainbow sprinkles to the best ever Sheet Pan Pizza. Experiments on the site help answer important questions like “Why does popcorn pop?” and “How does cheese melt?”
The site also includes food-focused video content in which a small group of young adults, ages 14 to 18, help engage and teach younger kids—through recipes, experiments, and kitchen techniques. All video content was shot in America’s Test Kitchen studio kitchens and features local Boston-area talent. Additional recipes, activities, and videos will be added to the site in the coming months. Each of the hands-on activities use food to teach about STEAM: science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics.
