    Even though his recipes are too heavy on the salt sometimes (BACK OFF, fellow fans) AND they don't always seem to have been thoroughly tested....I still hang on Alton's every word as he cooks....if he'd been my science teacher back when, I might actually have LEARNED something...

    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.
