As Good Eats enjoys its 14th season on the Food Network, its popularity continues unabated. Fans can’t get enough of Alton Brown’s wildly inventive, science-geeky, food-loving spirit. It’s no wonder, then, that the first two volumes in STC’s Good Eats series were New York Times bestsellers.
Like Volumes 1 and 2, Good Eats 3: The Later Years packs a bounty of information and entertainment between its covers. More than 200 recipes are accompanied by hundreds of photographs, drawings, and stills from the show, as well as lots of science-of-food facts, cooking tips, food trivia, behind-the-scenes glimpses—and bonus sock puppet instructions! In chapters devoted to everything from pomegranates to pretzels, mincemeat to molasses, Alton delivers delicious recipes along with fascinating background in a book that’s as fun to read as it is to cook from. Good Eats 3 will be a must-have addition to the bookshelves and kitchen counters of Alton lovers everywhere.
Praise for Good Eats 3: The Later Years:
“A victory lap”
“The hefty book is filled with health information and tips on how to become a better home cook, all told in the breezy style that made Alton Brown’s show so accessible and fun. Plus there is a pattern and stickers for making sock puppets. She was wonderful, but Julia Child never taught you how to make a sock puppet, did she?”
“Alton’s cookbooks are non-traditional to say the least. In addition to great recipes, they’re loaded with humor, science, and great tips on selecting ingredients.”
—Northeast Flavor magazine
“Much like Good Eats the show, the book can carry many labels—or, more to the point, defy labels altogether.”
“His best yet.” —LAWeekly.com
The Food Network show is not your typical cooking show — it's more of a mix of MacGyver, Mr. Wizard and History Rocks. As the show celebrates its 10th year, Brown talks about looking back to the past for his new book, Good Eats: The Early Years. More at NPR.org
