Friday, March 14, 2014

This time on America’s Test Kitchen, we take a trip to Mars with Pascal Lee, the co-founder and chairman of the Mars Institute, to find out what astronauts will eat over the two-and-a-half year voyage. We’ll be tasting frozen orange juice, and we’ll speak with food writer Adam Gopnik about the ethics of eating meat. Then we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make perfectly roasted root vegetables. And of course, we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
