This time on America’s Test Kitchen, we investigate junk food engineering with author Michael Moss to find out how food companies weaponize ingredients to create addiction. We’ll find out all about pepper mills from gadget guru Lisa McManus, and we’ll speak with food writer Adam Gopnik. Then we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make the best Pepper-Crusted Beef Tenderloin Roast. And of course, we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
