Speaker Bio

Christopher Kimball is the founder of Milk Street, a food media company dedicated to traveling the world to meet home cooks who teach us bolder, easier ways to cook at home. Milk Street produces the bimonthly Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Magazine, as well as Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Radio, a weekly public radio show and podcast heard on over 230 stations nationwide. Kimball is also host of the Emmy award-winning Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Television. Milk Street also offers online and in-person culinary education, including nonprofit work with Big Brothers Big Sisters and Boys & Girls Clubs, and publishes cookbooks including the James Beard winner for Best General Cookbook, Milk Street: Tuesday Nights. Kimball is also the author of Fannie’s Last Supper, The Yellow Farmhouse Cookbook, The Cook’s Bible, The Dessert Bible, The Kitchen Detective and Dear Charlie. He was also the founder, editor and publisher of Cook’s Illustrated and Cook’s Country magazines, and the host of the public television shows: America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country.

Like his cooking style, Kimball takes a straight-forward, no-nonsense approach to his speaking engagements, delighting audiences with humorous, irreverent, and unpredictable anecdotes about his lifetime spent in the kitchen, in the media, and behind some of the most successful culinary businesses of our time. With engaging talks packed with insight, Kimball educates and entertains audiences at the Smithsonian, Columbia University, Boston University, and scores of libraries, historical societies, bookstores, and schools across his 40-year career.
