It’s the country’s most trusted test kitchen and a cooking show mainstay on public television. The YouTube channel has over a million subscribers and thousands of videos that show how to make virtually anything. And now America’s Test Kitchen is launching a new YouTube channel just for kids, with two distinct series to inspire young chefs everywhere.

“Wicked Good” is out now with seven episodes that follow a formerly evil scientist as he learns to cook and use his powers for good. He’s enlisted the help of 13-year-old granddaughter and recipe tester Zoe Bates, but it won’t be easy. Can Zoe help him drop his evil scientist instincts and whip up foolproof creations? One thing’s for sure, zany mistakes are sure to happen along the way!

“Test Kitchen Kids Takeover” will spotlight the young chefs of America’s Test Kitchen Kids and launch on June 9. Each week, kids will share cooking tips, recipes and demonstrate the real-life mishaps that are part of the cooking process. Don’t forget the dance parties!

“By launching our first YouTube channel for kids, we’re hoping to continue to foster a community in which children feel empowered and excited to take the lead in the kitchen,” explained Editor in Chief Molly Birnbaum, America’s Test Kitchen Kids. “The channel is funny and warm, showing kids that cooking isn’t just attainable but also FUN—a great way to express their personalities and see other kids just like them. It’s the perfect expansion on our successful cookbook line, free website full of recipes, and podcast.”  

You can start watching (and cooking) along now! The YouTube channel drops following America’s Test Kitchen Kids’ New York Times bestselling cookbook, The Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs. For even more fun in the kitchen, you can subscribe to The Young Chef’s Club, a monthly kit that combines cooking and science, or listen to the Mystery Recipe podcast that breaks down the wild sides of food. Bon appetit!
