    He is awesome and I love the science he puts into it.  He knows his stuff and I love the show. And I love to use his recipe for pancakes, no boxed mixes for me again.

    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.
