encore date: January 3, 2016
original air date: January 10, 2015
Go behind the scenes with America’s Test Kitchen Christopher Kimball to see what led him down the kitchen path and the science behind memorable meals. And sharpen those knives for his tip on slicing onions for flavor and texture! On tour near La Grange, meet the heart-warming Bernsen family who grows most of their own food, from pre-school to parents. Since it’s not too late to plant trees, Daphne’s Plant of the Week is stately Mexican sycamore. Plus, she explains why to apply horticultural oil now to fruit trees and other trees with past insect issues. See what’s growing in Trisha Shirey’s winter vegetable garden at Lake Austin Spa Resort and how she fends off deer and controls insects.
