The popular YouTube crew will be raising money for World Central Kitchen’s coronavirus effort live on 1 May at 7 pm ET.
Claire Saffitz, Brad Leone, Sohla El-Waylly, Molly Baz, as well as the rest of the Test Kitchen members, will be joining editor-in-chief-turned-host Adam Rapoport for their first-ever live fundraising event.
Announced across Bon Appétit’s social media, the event promises viewers an entertaining and chaotic night, filled with a range of different segments.
“There will be cooking challenges! There will be cute pets! There will (possibly) be tears,” the magazine wrote on YouTube.

100% of the live show’s profits will be going towards funding restaurants and feeding those in need, such as healthcare workers. The event is part of World Central Kitchen’s wider relief work. Viewers will be able to donate during the fundraiser.
This is the first live show Bon Appétit has held in the channel’s eight-year history and adds to the magazine’s efforts to continue releasing content during lockdown. The Test Kitchen crew have been creating videos from their own homes, even sharing their personal binge-watching habits.
Bon Appetit’s Test Kitchen normally resides in the Condé Nast Manhattan Headquarters, where the crew members create recipes for the publication regularly.
