America's Test Kitchen is a Cooking Show on PBS and essentially the TV version of Cook's Illutstrated magazine, hosted by editor Christopher Kimball. Unlike most cooking shows (particularly those on PBS), it focuses on the "science" of cooking; it could be thought of as a more straight-up version of Good Eats. In addition to recipes and general cooking tips, the show also features a science corner, letters to the editor (Chris Kimball), an Equipment Corner (consumer cooking goods reviews) and a tasting lab.

A spin-off (more like very minor variation) is Cooks Country, once again featuring host Chris Kimball and pretty much the rest of the America's Test Kitchen staff.
