On Monday, April 23, 2018, CPTV hosted an evening with Julia Collin Davison and Bridget Lancaster, hosts of the national cooking series America’s Test Kitchen. 

The event took place on a lovely spring evening at the Pond House Cafe in West Hartford. Guests were treated to a reception, a demonstration from Julia and Bridget, a Q&A session, and a door-prize raffle.

CPTV thanks Julia and Bridget, and everyone who came out for this evening of food, friends, and fun! The proceeds from the event will support the CPTV programming that viewers throughout Connecticut, and beyond, depend on.

View some fun photos from the event below! America’s Test Kitchen airs Saturdays at 2 p.m. on CPTV.
