I’m pretty excited about today. Why? Instead of having a full post for you here, I’m going to tell you to head over to America’s Test Kitchen’s blog, The Feed, and check out my post there! You might remember I won a scholarship to the Test Kitchen’s Cooking School about a month ago. Part of that scholarship entailed the opportunity to write a blog post for The Feed. I was assigned to blog about my experience with the homemade pasta lessons at the Cooking School. I can’t even begin to explain how much I learned and how fun it was… Well actually, I did try to explain it, so head to my post and check it out!

A little side note on me: When I was in grad school, I was writing a paper on the magazine publishing industry and decided to try to interview Chris Kimball of America’s Test Kitchen fame for the paper, though I knew my chances of even getting an editor to answer my emailed questions were slim. I sent an email to the only contact I could find and the next day, I actually received a response with a thread from his assistant forwarding my email to Chris and asking if he could chat with me. Before long, I was on the phone with Chris Kimball himself chit chatting about all things magazine publishing, cooking, and brand building. It was incredible and I became even more of a fan (that was 6 years ago… gosh, I’m old!). Also, one of the first recipes I made myself was Cook’s Illustrated‘s blueberry clafoutis back when I was in college (8 years ago!). I’m a big supporter of all things America’s Test Kitchen and SO thrilled I had a chance to blog for them.

I’m also incredibly excited about the Cooking School they recently launched and am very happy to share my experience with you. And trust me, I will be making lots and lots more pasta in my home… So, who wants to have a pasta party??
