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.
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. In 2004 his STC book I’m Just Here For the Food won the James Beard Award for in the reference category. Brown lives in Georgia with his wife and daughter.
We love Alton Brown in our house. He's funny, fun and very informative. This book really captures all that. Love this book. I gave it to my husband for Christmas last year and it was a bit hit.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Good Eats or wants a great cookbook. Alton Brown's recipes are always a joy, this cookbook has already gotten a ton of use. Definitely in my top 5 favorite cookbooks!
Anyone who enjoys the show GOOD EATS will love this book... every recipe from the first 6 seasons is in this one book. Great illustrations and clearly written. Keeps your attention - even if you have ADHD! I've been reading it just for fun! The recipes are easy to modify if you want to give it a flare all of your own but are great just as themselves! I can't wait for the next book to come out!
