She was also its editor and publisher. Additionally, it publishes Cook’s Country, a publication that debuted in 2004. The company distinguishes itself from the competition by generating its revenue from readers rather than from ads.

Two Pigs Farm is its section that publishes cookbooks. Kimball’s publishing operations were owned by Boston Common Press, a privately held partnership between Kimball, George P. Denny III, and Eliot Wadsworth II. Additionally, Kimball served as the host of the nationally syndicated cooking programs America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country from America’s Test Kitchen.

In August 2019, the legal dispute was resolved. Kimball sold his remaining equity to the business as part of the settlement. He was further sued by his ex-wife Adrienne who alleged his departure from Cook’s Illustrated devalued the company and affected his payments to her.
