EVENT OVERVIEW: Alton Brown, Food Network Star & Bestselling Author, will Present his New Hardcover Cookbook Alton Brown: EVERYDAYCOOK: This time, it's personal.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Alton Brown used to direct TV commercials and cook on the side. Then he got the crazy idea to go to culinary school and reinvent the food show. The result: Good Eats, which kept Brown gainfully employed for 15 Years and earned him a Peabody Award. Along the way he also hosted Iron Chef America and Feasting on Asphalt and wrote seven books in his spare time. In 2013 he launched a live culinary variety show called The Edible Inevitable tour, which played to sold out theaters across the United States. In the spring of 2016, Brown’s new live show, Eat Your Science, toured forty U.S. cities. Brown also hosts the insanely popular Cutthroat Kitchen on Food Network.
ABOUT THE BOOK: My name is Alton Brown and I wrote this Book. It's my first in a few years because I've been busy with television projects such as Good Eats and Iron Chef America and Cutthroat Kitchen. When I haven't been hosting or producing, I've been developing digital media projects and touring my live stage shows and collecting awards. My publisher made me say that last part. But then I started thinking that I wanted to do something personal. And that's what Alton Brown: EVERYDAYCOOK: This time, it's personal is. This is the food I cook and eat on a day-to-day basis, from morning to late at night and everywhere in-between. There's still plenty of science and hopefully some humor here (my agent says that's my wheelhouse ), but unlike with my other books, a lot of attention went into the photos, which were actually taken with my iPhone (take that, Instagram) and are suitable for framing. As for the recipes, which are arranged by time of day, they're mighty tasty. Highlights include:
- Breakfast: Buttermilk Lassi, Overnight Coconut Oats, Nitrous Pancakes
- Coffee Break: Cold Brew Coffee, Lacquered Bacon, Seedy Date Bars
- Noon: Smoky the Meat Loaf, Fish Sticks and Custard, "EnchiLasagna" or "Lasagnalada"
- Afternoon: Green Grape Cobbler, Crispy Chickpeas, Savory Greek Yogurt Dip
- Evening: Onion Oxtail Soup, Mussels-O-Miso, Garam Masalmon Steaks, Anytime: Pate de Sardine, Roasted Chile Salsa, Peach Punch Pops
- Later: Cider House Fondue, Open Sesame Noodles, Midnight Mug Cake for 2
So let's review: 101 recipes with mouthwatering photos, a plethora of useful insights on methods, tools, and ingredients all written by an Award-Winning and influential Educator and Tastemaker. That last part is from the PR office. Real people don't talk like that.
