Questions for Kimball: What's Up With Adam from Equipment Corner?

Christopher Kimball from Cook's Illustrated took questions from Kitchen readers. This week, we're posting his replies.

Here's today's question:
We love your gadget testing guy Adam Ried. Does he
do other projects at Cook's Illustrated besides testing gadgets?
-Art



No, Adam is stuck in the equipment corner although we have two other full-time employees who work on these testings as well, Lisa and Liz.

Two years ago, Adam took a one-year sabbatical in Paris (not sure why I don't get to do that)and is now working on a part-time basis. He also appears on both of our cooking shows. (We are introducing a new show next summer based on Cook's Country Magazine.) Adam is also a huge antique car buff -- we both own antique Citroens, our favorite manufacturer.

He just purchased a CX and Adrienne and I own a DS, an SM, and a Traction Avant, the classic Citroen model that was made up until the 1950s. Vive Citroen!
