Posted 2 months ago

America's Test Kitchen is currently looking to hire kitchen interns for the following period:

October 7, 2019 - December 20, 2019

These dates are not flexible.
3-month duration

Hours: M-F (9-5) *Note: depending on the team assigned, hours will fluctuate.


Our internship program is suitable for those currently enrolled in a culinary arts/ baking-pastry program but could also be suitable for graduates or experienced restaurant professionals. This is a paid ($12/hr) hands-on internship in our busy test kitchen. It is not an entry-level internship; we are looking for seasoned and well-trained interns who have a strong familiarity with professional cooking/baking basics, methods and techniques; they should possess strong knife skills, have a familiarity with kitchen operations and strong overall food and equipment knowledge.

The test kitchen intern will be responsible for production within a designated publication: Cook's Illustrated magazine, Cook's Country magazine, cookbooks or our photo team. The intern will rotate to a new publication every 6 weeks, allowing them to work with 2 teams during their 3-month internship, with exception to our filming seasons when interns may be assigned to assist with our shows.

Interns will work daily with test cooks and editors in researching recipes, preparing mise en place, and performing cooking tests. An intern may also help out during photo shoots by prepping ingredients, making recipes and gathering equipment. The intern may also help with evaluations of kitchen equipment and ingredient taste tests.

The intern will be expected to train quickly and effectively on our kitchen policies and procedures. He/she will assist our Senior Kitchen Assistant- Receiver with check-in and distribution of daily shopping ingredients and be responsible for reporting on kitchen tasks; including but not limited to: cleaning and organizational tasks, maintenance and calibration of equipment, prep/cooking for in-house catering events, and dishwashing.

Interns will be eligible to participate in a research project halfway through their internship period. This project is designed to simulate the work of a test cook through research and experiments.


  • Candidates must be analytical, accurate, flexible, efficient, and punctual.

  • Candidates must have the ability to follow directions, work independently and within a team and maintain a creative mindset

  • Candidates must have strong communication skills

  • Candidates must understand the expectation of the internship and be committed to the duration and hours as listed


  • 2+ years hands-on culinary experience highly desirable.

  • Proof of status in current culinary arts or baking-pastry program (ideally this is second or third externship experience) OR paperwork indicating completion of either program (if you are a culinary management or food science major, please highlight your hands-on culinary experience in your application. Applicants without this experience will not be considered).

We are devoted to a collegial approach to cookingteams of editors, writers, and cooks engage in side-by- side comparisons, blind taste tests, and rigorous equipment tests to determine which is the best way to roast a chicken, which pans work and which ones dont, which brand of ketchup tastes best, and so on.
