Anna & Kristina's Grocery Bag

We've all seen the beautiful meals skillfully executed by professional chefs, but what happens when two average home cooks try to tackle the culinary arts? Hosts Anna Wallner and Kristina Matisic focus their efforts in the kitchen, putting popular cookbooks to the test. Each episode tackles one cookbook, with Anna and Kristina recreating the recipes as written and exploring how easy each dish is to prepare.

Along the way, they offer entertaining and informative thoughts on ingredients, food-prep techniques and kitchen products. To judge the results, Anna and Kristina are joined by world-class chefs and food experts, who rate the meal and decide if the chosen cookbook delivers on its promises.
