Book Description

Oct. 1 2009
Alton Brown is a foodie phenomenon: a great cook, a very funny guy, and—underneath it all—a science geek who’s as interested in the chemistry of cooking as he is in eating. (Well, almost.) Here, finally, are the books that Brown’s legion of fans have been salivating for—two volumes that together will provide an unexpurgated record of his long-running, award-winning Food Network TV series, Good Eats
From “Pork Fiction” (on baby back ribs), to “Citizen Cane” (on caramel sauce), to “Oat Cuisine” (on oatmeal), every hilarious episode is represented. Each book—the second will be published in fall 2010—is illustrated with behind-the-scenes photos taken on the Good Eats set. Each contains more than 140 recipes and more than 1,000 photographs and illustrations, along with explanations of techniques, lots of food-science information (of course!), and more food puns, food jokes, and food trivia than you can shake a wooden spoon at.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly well organized. Oct. 24 2009
To reiterate, the book is incredibly well organized. Alton Brown is a well-tuned master of the culinary/entertainment arts. The book reflects back on the first 6 seasons of his show Good Eats. It enhances or alters some of the recipes and ideas from the show and has added some new ones.

The book references other parts of itself very smoothly. The behind the scenes quips, stories, and tips are worth the price of admission alone.

If Alton seems like he is a man who is full of himself ... he has every right to be.

Can't wait for the second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun read, informative May 22 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book (and the whole series of Good Eats books) are a wonderful source of information as well as recipes and are suitable for the beginner/novice cook. The humour from the show comes through on the pages, and the little factoids included on many types of foods are super fun and interesting. I read this book like a novel, and have tried several of the recipes. Makes cooking seem 100% fun and 0% chore.

By Lucus
It is nice to cook but doing it 'robotically'...as most of us do is kind of wasting the real nature of cooking, Alton breaks this barrier by opening our minds by dissecting the processes involved in cooking by explaining it in a way that does not require a PHD in science and surely teach us stuff that makes us more aware of the beauty and joy of cooking, from the ingredients to methods....you will never cook the same after reading his book series...as a bonus his humoristic style will grow on you like poison ivy so much you won't stop reading till the last page..and get his next book!. Thank Alton!
