Christopher Kimball is sometimes really funny but at the same time he can be very cutting and surprisingly rude, I have seen this with Bridget and others at times and it is awkward. Sometimes I am surprised at what comes out of his mouth and with a straight face!

I love that I can read CI and Cooks Country online through my library's website. They use Zinio. I can read other magazines there too. Martha Stewart, Food TV, Bon Appetit, etc. Check with your local library, I bet yours has this service too.

Christopher Kimball is just too rude and pompus for me. He may know cooking, but I dont like his demeanor. Milk Street's recipes don't appeal to me. On the other hand, I do like Bridget and Julia on ATK. I know this thread isnt about TV shows, but somehow we got off on that tangent.

I really like CI best because of the lack of ads and also the product reviews.

UNCTV is now running Milk St in the Sunday afternoon cooking show lineup. Today they had 2 Thai recipes that looked really good.

I've received CI for a long time and use the product reviews more than anything else. The recipes tend to recycle after about 4-5 years. If I had to pick one cooking magazine, it would be Fine Cooking. It has more actual recipes and cooking info than many others. Saveur and Bon Appetit now include too many travel articles.

I watch both on PBS (we cut our cable cord in January), and enjoy them. I especially like ATK since the departure of resident krank Christopher Kimball. He wasn't jettisoned, but chose to leave, ostensibly over a contract dispute. In fact, he started another program, Milk Street, which follows the exact format as ATK (he's being sued by everyone, it seems).

I just wish Cook's Country on PBS would get rid of that annoying guitar riff between short segments.

Hee hee...that guitar is annoying to me too.
