Cook's Country blooper reel

I have to give props to Christopher Kimball for posting this blooper reel compilation from the Cook's Country tapings. Cook's Country is a cooking show associated with America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Illustrated magazine, and like the rest of the products, the purpose is to test and recommend ingredients, and improve recipes. They also include some of the science being cooking and baking.

Christopher Kimball has a bit of a reputation for being particular and a little uptight, so it was so refreshing to see him and the chefs mess up lines, poke fun at each other, and even make mistakes. Reading Cook's Illustrated (to which I subscribe), it almost feels like there are no unintentional mistakes made in the testing of the recipes.
