About Me

As a longtime fan of Alton Brown, and of all things food-related, I concocted a food project for myself. Having avidly watched Good Eats, I decided to cook my way through all 14 seasons of the show. Why might one choose to do such a thing? Well, I love to cook and eat, and I figured this project would force me to cook some things I would likely not cook on my own. I have a Master’s degree in Food Science, so I appreciate the scientific approach Alton took to cooking on Good Eats. And, as an added bonus, some of my weekly menu planning will be done for me!

    I just discovered your blog while looking for a fondue recipe to use up a bottle of hard cider and am so glad that I did. Our household are big Good Eats fans, so we will be following along with your posts! Great concept and keep up the good work.

    • Thanks! It has been a fun project!

        Hey, I’ve been going through each episode like you (only doing one recipe). Yours is one of 4 websites I have open at all times during each episode (foodnetwork.com, altonbrown.com, and goodeatsfanpage.com). I see you haven’t updated in a year, so I hope everything is well with you and your family. Just know that this is being read and appreciated.

    I was trying to replicate the doodads found on Alton’s show and none of the other sites that I had looked on did exactly that except for this one! I am really impressed with the explanations you give, and that even though its an older show you are still are further sharing both its simplicity and complexity. 😀

    Can you tell me what grill was used in Good Eats Episode 41 “Grill Seekers.” I’d be most appreciative. Thank you.

    • Hi, I have been trying to figure out what grill Alton used in “Grill Seekers.” It is difficult to tell, but the logo looks to me like it may be that of Delta Heat. I know he went to a Barbeques Galore store in Atlanta in that episode, so I looked through the logos online of the brands they carry. Sorry I can’t tell you more!

    Thank you.

    I just found your blog, and I am impressed with the quality of the write-ups and pictures. Although I have prepared many of Alton’s recipes, I have not even come close to trying most of them. I also love that you highlight any differences between the TV recipe and the recipe posted online. Thanks for doing this. I will be reading!

    I found your blog and I love Good Eats! I noticed in some of your pictures you have Signature brands, which leads me to believe you are a Jewel-Osco shopper in Illinois, like myself? Great blog!

    I meant to ask if you have read On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee? One of my favorite books on food science/chemistry. Being a trained chemist with granfathers who were chefs, I could not put the book down. Looking forward to reading through your blog. This is going to be fun. 🙂
