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.

  1. my favorite moment was when he made cookies for his sister and at the end ended up buying all his own cookie back from a sweet diabolical little girl scout

  2. yvonne solis says:

    My favorite was the one where he did all the different kinds of pickles. I am a pickle freak! I can my own and the knowledge he shared had me on the edge of my seat! You go Alton!!

  3. nasoniabev says:

    I would say I’m rather fond of the Scrap Iron Chef episode. The penchant for cobbled culinary contraptions ran rampant as Junkyard Wars (classic hobby engineer show) was part of the framing device of the episode, and I enjoyed watching Iron Chef Japan back in the day purely for the commentary/banter. That Alton later landed the gig as host of Iron Chef America brings the whole thing together.

  4. Shannon says:

    Definitely hard to pick one. The garlic episode was a good one. I have no idea what episode it was, but I remember him sneaking around outside a window and my daughter thought it was hilarious.

  5. Din Clarke says:

    When Alton meets the Cinna Man in the donut episode. Loved the giant piece of cinnamon.

  6. Fizzwinkle says:

    Showing how to make a smoker out of an old military equipment box was sheer genius! I learned more from that episode than I have from all of my BBQ and Smoking Meat books that I have in my library!

    As a matter of fact, my friends say that my smoked salmon is the absolute BEST!

  7. Nancy Miller says:

    I watch Alton Brown on Food Network every day.It's hard to pick just one. There have been so many that I've enjoyed.Alton Brown has such a way of being humerous and informative at the same tine .If I had to pick just one it had to be making biscuits with his grandmother

  8. Cathy C says:

    Loved all the knowledge Alton has shared and am personally fond of his impression of Colonel Sanders in various episodes! :)

  9. sasycassi21 says:

    I like the episode with biscuts

  10. Teresa Hardisty says:

    All of Alton's shows are great! I loved the show where Alton made pasta, and rolled it out on an ironing board. Alton is a great chef, knowledgeable, entertaining and passionate….but most of all he is creative in his approach. Alton, your the best!
