    Alton is the bomb, yo. I love when he comes over to my house and shows me how to cook w/ all his charts and sock puppets. I wonder what we will make next?

    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.
