Alton Brown's Gear for Your Kitchen

Alton Brown's Gear for Your Kitchen Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dedicated viewers of Alton Browns acclaimed Food Network show Good Eats know of his penchant for using unusual equipment. He has smoked a salmon in a cardboard box, roasted prime rib in a flowerpot, and used a C-clamp as a nutcracker. Brown isnt interested in novelty, hes just devoted to using the best—and simplest—tool for the job.

Alton Browns Gear For Your Kitchen offers honest, practical advice on whats needed and what isnt, what works and what doesnt. For instance: You only need three knives, but they are a lifetime investment. And dont bother with that famous countertop grill—it doesnt get hot enough to properly sear. In his signature science-guy style, Brown begins with advice on kitchen layout and organization, then gets to the lowdown on these cooking elements: Big Things with Plugs; Pots and Pans; Sharp Things; The Tool Box; Small Things with Plugs; Storage and Containment; and Safety and Sanitation.

Gear For Your Kitchen is essential for all of Browns fans as well as anyone who wants a good guide to great kitchen gear. With more than 125,000 hardcover copies in print, this indispensable—and highly entertaining—book is now offered in a paperback edition that every home cook can afford.

Synopsis:

This essential book for any fan of Brown--and anyone who wants a good guide to great kitchen gear--reveals everything from the invention of the "blendor" (that's the way its inventor spelled it) to the true facts behind kitchen urban legends.

Synopsis:

Following his best-selling and award-winning debut, I'm Just Here for the Food, Alton Brown's Gear for Your Kitchen offers honest, practical advice on the tools that work and don't work in the kitchen, along with 25 new recipes on which to use them. Also from Alton Brown this Fall: I'm Just Here for the Food Kitchen User's Manual and Cook's Notes.
