FRIDAY 11/2  

Cook's Illustrated 25th Birthday Bash benefiting FareStart

The year was 1993... Nirvana and Pearl Jam shifted the country's music epicenter, Boston’s Cheers gave way to Seattle’s Frasier, Sleepless in Seattle paired Tom and Meg for the first time, and a very different cooking magazine hit newsstands. It featured an oil painting of spring produce on its cover, tips on how to zest citrus and shop for the best eggplant, a guide to breaking down poultry, and recipes for, among other things, flaky biscuits, roast chicken, and grilled pizza peppered throughout its 32 pages. It cost 4 dollars and contained no advertising.

Let’s party like it’s 1993, see how Cook’s Illustrated changed home cooking since, and what’s ahead for the next 25 years.

  • Enjoy unlimited food from Seattle’s premiere chefs and mingle with them in this intimate setting

  • Sample beer, wine, and spirits

  • Birthday cake and specialty birthday cocktails

  • Meet our TV cast and test cooks and get your cookbooks and favorite Cook’s Illustrated issues signed

  • 90’s music by DJ Kemyst

VIP access includes one hour early entry at 6:30pm, a VIP lounge with exclusive wine and food pairings, plus a gift bag which includes the latest ATK book!
