I Idolize Alton Brown

    No More Broken Yolks!!

    I love how his show isn't really about the recipes, it's about teaching you how to cook.  I watched a show where he spent half of it debating the merits of gas or charcoal grills.  I am forever indebted to Alton for teaching me how to flip eggs with the pan.  I can...

    This Man Made Me Believe In Homemade Again

    I've watched him make things from pasta to marshmellows all from scratch and it looks so easy and so much better then the store bought kind. I love how he explains why foods cook or create what they do with science diaoramas and skits, including funny characters and pitching in...

    Alton Brown Is Amazing, He ...

    Alton Brown is amazing, he actually uses science to teach cooking, which I think is really very cool.  He makes me want to cook because he has explained why I need to take the time to make it right.  I love that.
