We’ve got it all here in Southie; million dollar homes, gorgeous beaches filled with scantily clad millennials, former haunts of notorious mobsters turned into trendy restaurants, one man picket lines, buses bursting with commuters, and now we welcome the arrival of America’s Test Kitchen. Not just the Boston or the Massachusetts test kitchen, no it’s America’s Test Kitchen and they’re moving from Brookline to the Seaport neighborhood of South Boston – because to be honest – who isn’t moving to Southie?
America’s Test Kitchen, which produces wildly popular cooking shows for public television, the magazine Cook’s Illustrated, in addition to numerous cookbooks, is moving to the Seaport’s Innovation and Design Building on Dry Dock Ave in a 55,000 square foot space with four state of the art kitchens next year. As part of their expansion, they also plan on launching new podcasts and more videos including ones on Facebook Live.
According to the Boston Globe, America’s Test Kitchen hope the new and improved space will help engage their fan base and are hoping to offer tours and invite people to tapings and food tastings. (Feel free to invite us – we love food!)
And being on trend, ATK will also have a food truck so we can sample their delicious experiments. The ATK food truck will be in good company being located right near the repurposed shipping containers home of food truck celebs Mei Mei and Roxy’s Grilled Cheese!
We can’t wait!
