    Alton Brown is the writer, director, and host of the Food Network show Good Eats, which won a 2007 Peabody Award, and is the expert commentator on Iron Chef America and host of The Next Iron Chef America. In 2004 his STC book I’m Just Here for the Food won the James Beard Award in the reference category. Brown lives near Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife and daughter.

    Good Eats 2: The Middle Years picks up where the bestselling Good Eats: The Early Years left off. Showcasing everything Alton Brown fans (and they are legion!) have ever wanted to know about his award-winning television show, The Middle Years is chock-full of behind-the-scenes photographs and trivia, science-of-food information, cooking tips, and—of course—recipes.

    Brown’s particular genius lies in teaching the chemistry of cooking with levity and exuberance. In episodes such as “Fit to Be Tied” (meat roulades), “Crustacean Nation” (crab), and “Ill-Gotten Grains” (wheat products), Brown explains everything from how to make the perfect omelet to how to stuff your own sausages. With hundreds of entertaining photographs, along with Brown’s inimitable line drawings and signature witty writing, this comprehensive companion book conveys the same wildly creative spirit as the show itself.

    • Great purchase

      I purchased this book as a gift for my boyfriend as he is a big fan of Alton Brown's show Good Eats. He loved this book. It's a hybrid between a novel and a cookbook. It reads like a novel with all sorts of techniques and then incorporates reciepes to utilize your new found skills. had the best price for the book, and it was shipped for only $1. That was cheaper than me having to drive to the store! I also purchased the second book in Alton's collection. I'm looking forward to giving that to my boyfriend for Christmas.
