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 make over-medium eggs at home now.

what i like is he teaches the basic stuff and he tells you why he does whatever he is doing. the teachings stick better if you know why and why his methods works

Yes that is true its more about "how to" than recipes. But I do so love his technique for the pancakes(in my story) because he tells you exactly what to mix where and to split the eggs which I had NEVER seen in any recipe and it really makes a difference on the fluffiness. :) I agree its the science of it that teaches you really how to cook.
