While wandering past the cookbook section of the mall bookstore, we blundered into 2 of Alton's cookbooks...

They looked pretty good, and one of them is basically a text book.

Hot diggity dawg! I was unaware that Alton Brown had written any books!

Of course he'd write a textbook! After all, he's Alton Brown! lol

My hubby loves Alton too, so it was very difficult to get him out of the bookstore without one or both of those books!

He's one of the more sensible people on Food Network. We made his ribs and baked beans for my birthday dinner and a variant for Phil's mom's birthday dinner.

I figured, given Greg's paens of praise for Alton Brown... so when we saw those books, I figured I should tell him about them...

Baby Back Ribs
Baked Beans

I like Alton Brown for lots of reasons. He takes a Mr. Wizard approach to cooking, explaining why you're doing what you're doing and what happens if you don't. You can learn science and cooking at the same time!

Besides that, he cooks simple everyday stuff and actually shows you how to do it.

Way cool! Good Eats deserves its own Wikipedia article! After all, it's one of the few television shows that are worth your time to watch them!

Until I read that article I hadn't realized how involved the design of the show had become with its cast of fictional characters and continuing gags.

I was also unaware that it is in its tenth season! shocked
