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.
