321: Mean Streets: Rags to Riches with Boston's Top Chef Barbara Lynch

Friday, July 18, 2014

This week, Boston’s own Barbara Lynch tells her story to America’s Test Kitchen—how she stole an MBTA bus at age 13, how she opened her first restaurant when she still owed the IRS $75,000, why she boxes for exercise, and what she said to the man who refused to believe that he had been served a duck. We’ll find out which seven kitchen gadgets you shouldn’t live without, and we’ll speak with food writer Adam Gopnik about the sudden popularity of juice bars. Then we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make grilled pork tenderloin steaks. And of course, we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
