Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Television

Cake and Scones

Christopher Kimball heads to Portland, Maine, to visit Tandem Coffee and Bakery's Briana Holt, who shows him both the sweet and savory sides of her baking. First, they make Savory Kale and Two-Cheese Scones, with saltiness from cheddar and pecorino and a sweet counterpoint from dried currants. Then, they bake a Double Chocolate Cake with Honey-Rosemary Syrup, coating the cake with a sweet, herbal soak that perfectly complements the bittersweet chocolate.

series description

The world of home cooking is undergoing a revolution with new tastes, flavors, techniques and influences. CHRISTOPHER KIMBALL'S MILK STREET TELEVISION wants to change how Americans cook by bringing home a fresher, bolder, simpler way of preparing food. Chris and his test cooks search the world over looking for the best recipes, and finding home cooks who can teach better ways to prepare a meal at home. The first season includes 40 all-new recipes, such as Central Mexican guacamole, Thai fried rice, Peruvian pesto, Japanese fried chicken, soba with miso butter and asparagus, tahini swirl brownies, lemon buttermilk pound cake, and more. Chris also shares tips and techniques designed to make home cooking easier, like how to make foolproof egg whites and how to season a carbon steel pan. As part of the debut season, Chris also travels overseas to cook with several internationally renowned chefs and authors, including: Fuchsia Dunlop, a Sichuan cooking expert; Claire Ptak, a food stylist and author of London's The Violet Bakery; and Andy Ricker in Thailand, known for his skill and expertise in northern Thai cuisine. Back in the kitchen, Chris transforms what the MILK STREET TELEVISION crew has learned into practical, simple recipes for home cooks everywhere.
