Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

 

Browns 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 Browns inimitable line drawings and signature witty writing, this comprehensive companion book conveys the same wildly creative spirit as the show itself.

Synopsis:

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.

I always have a cookbook at my finger tips and Alton has made this book worth keeping out of my library and on my counter. I use the book as a reference on technique as well as recipes. I found the self laughing out loud at the self interview as well as other tidbits. Even the casual “Good Eats” fan would enjoy the book. I bought two copies for Christmas gifts as well.
