Good Eats: The Early Years

1 rating: 5.0
A book by Alton Brown

Every so often a cookbook comes along that wishes it were a television show. Brown's latest effort actually is a television show, or rather, a marathon of all 80 episodes from the first six seasons of his Food Network hit. Egotistical yet thrifty, … see full wiki

The Cult Manual

  • Oct 24, 2009
Good Eats is hands down, my favorite cooking show of all time. It's just as knowledge-packed as America's Test Kitchen, but waaaaaaaay more entertaining. Alton Brown's cookbooks, with the exception of Gear (my favorite), come really close to feeling like the show, but don't quite get you there. Enter Good Eats The Early Years.

Grab a copy; you're holding the essence of Good Eats in your hands. I say hands because this book has heft, at almost 400 pages, it is comprehensive to say the least. It takes you through seasons 1-6. None of the pages are wasted.

This neither a book for the novice nor the home expert. (Try his other books for that.) It is first and foremost a book for the Good Eats cult. Brown has "bested" the recipes from the shows as well as added new ones. You get the science and a healthy dose of the behind-the-scenes stuff that make the show work (think Behind the Eats.) Never fear, the detailed info on how to build his hardware-store influenced kitchen gadgets is included. I suggest cover-to-cover reading so that you don't miss anything.

I love this book!!!
