Publisher Comments:

Eight years ago, Alton Brown set out to create a cooking show for a new generation. The result was Good Eats, one of Food Network’s most popular programs. Four years ago, Brown set out to write a cookbook for people who would rather understand their food than follow a recipe. A mix of cutting-edge graphics and a fresh take on preparing food, I’m Just Here For the Food became one of the bestselling cookbooks of the year—and received the James Beard Foundation/KitchenAid Book Award as best reference book.

This year, to commemorate and celebrate this success story (more than 300,000 copies in print), STC is pleased to announce I’m Just Here For the Food: Version 2.0.. This special edition features 15 brand-new recipes, 20 pages of additional material, and 4 removable refrigerator magnets—along with everything that made the original a classic instruction manual for the kitchen. Each of the book’s 15 sections is a module on a given cooking method—from pan searing to pressure cooking, stewing to steaming—with a “master” recipe and a varied selection of recipes that epitomize the technique. The text is accented throughout with food facts, history and lore, and science.

This book makes me want to apply for a refund on my culinary degree. Seriously, Alton Brown has such amazing things to teach and this book was my first purchase. My new skills are getting rave reviews at home. I suggest you give it a read and of course... you need to watch Good Eats.

That zany Food Network Host has done it again. Not only do his books provide enough science to make anyone confident enough to venture their own recipes, but version 2.0 is new and improved including meat charts and other diagrams that are so familiar from his hit show. This tome of knowledge is a recommended gift for anyone in your life who loves to cook or would love to learn.
