Alton Brown has shared his passion and science-lab, how-to style of cooking on Food Network’s Good Eats for 14 seasons and his vast knowledge on Next Iron Chef and Iron Chef America. Now, in the last of his Good Eats series of cookbooks, he’s sharing his techniques in Good Eats 3: The Later Years, which contains a bounty of science-to-food facts, cooking tips, trivia and chapters devoted to foods like pretzels and pomegranates.

In the last of the trilogy, Alton presents more than 200 recipes along with stills from the show and behind-the-scenes glimpses. What’s in the back of the book? A sock-puppet blueprint complete with stickers to resemble the Good Eats Sock Puppet (circa 1997). You can’t help but love Alton Brown.

    My favorite moment in Good Eats vs My life was the very first time I saw his show. I was flipping through channels and kinda bored. Never really watched or cared much about cooking until after that moment.

    The channel changed to Good Eats and he was explaining the science behind why several ingredients interact and then proceeded to finish cooking….. I was flabbergasted that he had fit so much science and knowledge into a small dish….. I can say that the reason I cook or think about cooking is because now I know there is science and Alton Brown is to thank.

    I'm an Alton fan like everyone else on this site now. I know how you feel when it becomes hard to pick a favorite moment. Out of all the Good Eats episodes, my favorite moment was when Alton got "little Stevie" to eat his peas at the end of "Give Peas a Chance", and I also liked the insane asylum in "Dip Madness." Thank you Alton for the best 13 years of my life.

    I have Celiac sprue and have been watching Alton's show from the beginning and his way of explaning how foods work has helped me enjoy cooking food that I thought I couldn'f have. My most favorite episode was on cooking ham with the "secret" flavor, Dr Pepper. It took me back to the 40's when I was a 6 year old and my Great aunt gave me a slice of ambrosia. It took me 60+ years to find it. Thank you Alton

    Pressure Cooker Chili (that's chili with an 'i') is my all time favorite. I've tried a few recipes from various other episodes, but this is the one I make the most often. I even make the chili powder from scratch too.

    I love your show. I have Barretts esophagus, and Gastritis and other issues. And food plays a manager role in my conditions. I am a good cook,very rich and spicy foods which is not good for me. I need to drop 40 pounds. I wish I had the resources to open a resturant that served good healthy meals. We have all kinds of resturants but they all serve foods that are high in fat,calories and not that good for us. As a nation we are getting fatter and turning into Diabetics. I never had sugar problems till this last year. Jamie I love what you are trying to do in the schools to better our childrens health. These health issues start as a child. I had problems growing up but was always told oh it is a tummy ache or stomache.

    I'm going to miss this show. One of the first shows that comes to mind is Pantry Raid V: Good Wine Gone Bad. Thank you for the years of info. It has come in handy.

    I like " how to cook the perfect steak" episode. Ive learned a lot and now impress my friends and family with knowledge I learned.

    Impossible to pick just one…I just saw the garlic episode and Vlad was great. I love everything with his sister and nephew…all the nutritional anthropologists are great and the Lady in the Frige is brilliant. I have to mention shooting from inside the fridge, cupboards, and oven is too cool…

  9. Robert Brown says:

    Cocoa Carl was always a favorite character of mine during Good Eats. I also enjoyed the Cube Steak episode where Alton shows off the set's underground dungeon.
