Book Description

Sept. 27 2011

As Good Eats enjoys its 14th season on the Food Network, its popularity continues unabated. Fans can’t get enough of Alton Brown’s wildly inventive, science-geeky, food-loving spirit. It’s no wonder, then, that the first two volumes in STC’s Good Eats series were New York Times bestsellers.

Like Volumes 1 and 2, Good Eats 3: The Later Years packs a bounty of information and entertainment between its covers. More than 200 recipes are accompanied by hundreds of photographs, drawings, and stills from the show, as well as lots of science-of-food facts, cooking tips, food trivia, behind-the-scenes glimpses—and bonus sock puppet instructions! In chapters devoted to everything from pomegranates to pretzels, mincemeat to molasses, Alton delivers delicious recipes along with fascinating background in a book that’s as fun to read as it is to cook from. Good Eats 3 will be a must-have addition to the bookshelves and kitchen counters of Alton lovers everywhere.

Praise for Good Eats 3: The Later Years:

“A victory lap” 
—Chicago Tribune

“The hefty book is filled with health information and tips on how to become a better home cook, all told in the breezy style that made Alton Brown’s show so accessible and fun. Plus there is a pattern and stickers for making sock puppets. She was wonderful, but Julia Child never taught you how to make a sock puppet, did she?”

“Alton’s cookbooks are non-traditional to say the least. In addition to great recipes, they’re loaded with humor, science, and great tips on selecting ingredients.”
Northeast Flavor magazine

“Much like Good Eats the show, the book can carry many labels—or, more to the point, defy labels altogether.”
—The Record

“His best yet.” —LAWeekly.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Love Alton Brown Sept. 4 2014
By Eugen
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Gotta love Alton Brown. I wish the structure was a bit more "normal" but then again, it is Good Eats and it is Alton Brown, so it does suit. I'd have loved if each book had come with the associated episodes on DVD as a good part of the joy of Good Eats is the visuals and methods illustrated during each episode. But well worth owning the full set that sits proudly in my kitchen cookbook collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best 'Home Economics Food Class' Rolls On Oct. 5 2011
By James Ellsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
...and rolls to a finish, I guess. I own Alton Brown DVD's of his shows and I also own 'Good Eats 1&2'. Anyone who wants to learn how to cook for themselves and for their family will benefit enormously from the knowledge in this series. Starting at the neighborhood 'Megamart', Alton tells his audience what to buy, how to turn it into tasty and nutritious "Good Eats" and why his technical recommendations work! As an example, which bacon do you take home from the supermarket display? How can you make it crispy? Why does frying bacon suddenly burn and how can that be prevented? Does all espresso coffee have to be dark roasted? Both techniques and recipes are 'first rate' for home cooks. This edition may focus a bit more on 'hyphen American' cuisine, like Creole Red Beans and Rice or Asian-American items or foods from the Latino culture, German-or Italian-American foods, but it includes plenty of staples like great cornbread and fried chicken. Alton adds things like 'grilled pizza' and other bread techniques. Powerful antioxident ingredients like Pomegranate juice show up (as juice and as 'molasses'); so readers are kept well up-to-date on trends and nutritional science. These topics are also hallmarks of the series. There are additional recipes from all the usual sections of the cookbook world of ingredients and I hope to try a good many of them before I am finished with the book. Fans of the Food Network show "Good Eats" will also enjoy the continued 'outtakes' photos and 'behind the scenes' information. The energy and drive evident in the first series carry through this product as well and it seems that this is a 'matter of pride' for Alton and his 'merry band'. Did I mention that Alton includes a bonus feature: his very own design for a 'sock puppet', complete with paste-on eyes, tongue(s) and mouth(s)? All of the whimsy that makes this series 'one of a kind' remains intact.

5.0 out of 5 stars <3 Alton Brown and Good Eats Oct. 19 2011
By EyeNuh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This came out just in time for fall! I'm slowly going through the recipes. The chiffon cupcakes were a hit with my coworkers. I made the pumpkin pie which was AMAZING. About to start working on the apple pie. All the recipes I've tried from his show have turned out amazing. Lots of recipes, easy to understand and follow. Eventually I will make the sock puppet, teehee!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great AB book Oct. 2 2011
By L. McPherson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great finsh to a well done trilogy. This book is as good as the others. I believe each person will like one book more than another just based on the number of recipes they personally like per book. Human nauture! This cook book reads very well and has all the tips that AB as given over the years. He reiterates his hatred of uni taskers and proves his prowess has a handyman. Well done Mr. AB, Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stuff I had missed Sept. 28 2011
By ut158 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Good Eats and I am sad Alton has finally stopped making the show. I own all the DVDs I was able to find and the first 2 books have only a couple of episodes not on those discs. This book has several more. If you are like me and own the DVDs and use the recipes from there, you may want to purchase this book to round out your collection. Hopefully there will be more DVDs in the near future to fill in all the gaps.

So far, my favorite book in this trilogy was the second one--it has the most useful recipes for me an my family and comes with a DVD of Good Eats shorts. As mentioned, this one also contains several "shows" that are not to be had on DVD yet. After having more time to look through recipes in this book that I am not already familiar with, I may change my mind and suggest this one as the best, but that's how it stands for now.

Also, if you like Alton Brown, you may consider Mark Bittman. How To Cook Everything: Simple Recipes for Great Food is probably his most popular book, but The Food Matters Cookbook: 500 Revolutionary Recipes for Better Living is also very good.
