Alton Brown Coming to Town
Alton Brown is scheduled to appear at Full Circle Bookstore Oct. 23 at 2 p.m. to sign copies of his seventh cookbook “Good Eats 3,” which is scheduled for Oct. 4 release.
The book arrives as Brown ends production of “Good Eats. Food Network aired the last of the original half hour episodes in the spring. Brown says he has three original hourlong specials ready to broadcast later this year.
The show’s recipe is part Julia Child, part Mr. Wizard and part Monty Python. Brown’s ability to offer context as well as technique is matched only by “America’s Test Kitchen.” But no one has as much fun hosting as Brown.
Brown didn’t take the typical route of a culinary professional. He started as a cinematographer. The University of Georgia grad hooked up with fellow Georgians R.E.M. to make some videos. Brown was director of photography for R.E.M.’s “The One I Love” video.
As the story goes, when he wasn’t making music videos he was watching cooking shows. But in the pre-Food Network days, cooking shows had gone as soft as a pork belly braised over night. So, using his film production skills, his degree in drama and passion for food, “Good Eats” was born. The rest is, well, you know the cliche.
