    The heat is on — not just in the streets, but at the Food Network, where season 9 of “Food Network Stars” is under way, and Alton Brown and his fellow judges decide which cooks stay and which ones go. “It’s a long, stressful competition,” concedes the James Beard Award-winning chef, who says there are always three things in his Marietta, Ga., refrigerator — none of them possum: homemade hummus, a “great deal” of mustard (“I only eat Gulden’s spicy brown, my wife likes French’s and we have several Dijons”) and lard. “We have friends who render pigs so we have mason jars full of the creamiest lard — you never know when you want to make pie crusts.” So much for Brown’s refrigerator — here’s what’s in his library. more

    Ever wish Alton Brown was in your far-flung city, to wow you with his knowledge and odd machinery? You’re in luck, because The Evitable Inevitable Tour is about to unleash its Alton-fueled fury (ponchos?). Brown released this video to announce the tour, and it teases a few of the things that might make an appearance (ponchos?!), including exclusive peeks at his mindblowing new set design, audience participation activities, and things that we should expect (air canons!). more

    Apparently, CL had a hard time finding someone to cover events on Saturday - 4/20 - so it came to me (the new guy) to cover "An Evening with Alton Brown" at the Knight Theater in Uptown. Sadly, because nature abhors an unsuffering writer, I felt about two steps away from death, but that didn't stop me. I took some cold meds and bravely went Uptown, only to find that apparently it was either prom or Mez reopened with an even tighter dress code. I couldn't figure out how old the fancy people were, though. Definitely old enough to not have acne but young enough to still have hope in their eyes. more

    In Star Wars, the only thing more iconic than tauntauns, X-Wings, Death Stars, lightsabers, and bantha poodoo…is the blue milk. Though it makes a brief appearance in the very beginning of A New Hope (along with Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen), it’s apparently captured the imaginations of millions of Star Wars fans who want to see it return in the next group of Disney-produced sequels. There’s only one problem, according to Alton Brown: “It ain’t milk.” more

    Alton Brown hosted and narrated Kitchens of the Future, a Food Network original documentary reliving the history of the modern-day kitchen of the future. Among the technology-themed issues: the saga of automatic dishwashing - a vintage war between Mrs. Modern and Mrs. Drudge; never-before-aired footage from General Motors Company (G.M.) depicting a futuristic kitchen like you have had seen before the invention of the built-in trash compactor; and a visit to the experimental Home of the Future, created by Walt Disney.

    After losing more than 50 pounds a few years back, celebrity chef Alton Brown not only remained in the culinary industry, he became an even more frequent contributor to the Food Network. In addition to his now-defunct show "Good Eats," he signed on as host of the pro competition series The Next Iron Chef, which starts its fifth season on November 4, and earlier this year served as a dedicated coach to contestants on the most recent installment of Food Network Star. That means that everywhere he turns, there's food. But while Brown, 50, has kept his eating habits in check, he admits it's not easy. more

    Call him what you will ("The Food Nerd," "Bill Nye of the Kitchen", "The Dad You Wish You Had") but Alton Brown has revolutionized how America approaches cooking. It all started with Brown directing and writing the Food Network series "Good Eats," where for 14 seasons he explored the scientific inner-workings of foods we have come to know as commonplace. Since then, Brown has won a James Beard award for his work on TV, which has included roles as a mentor on "The Next Food Network Star," as a host of "Feasting on Asphalt," and as a commentator on "The Next Iron Chef" and "Iron Chef America." It's safe to say that he's solidified his place amongst TV's culinary elite. more

    We recently had a great conversation with Alton Brown, who was on his way between Los Angeles and Las Vegas to shoot The Next Iron Chef, the Food Network show he now hosts (which, in my humble opinion, does not fill the hole left by the end of the cultishly popular Good Eats series). As you’d expect, he dropped pearls of wisdom about on-the-road food, but as you might not expect, he also had quite a lot to say about his philosophy of travel—and his experience as a pilot. So over the next few weeks, we’ll share Browns’ theories, tips, travel tricks, and of course culinary thoughts in a series called "Alton Brown on…." We’ll start today with Alton Brown on flying, airline food, and the final word on whether cupcake icing is a gel. more...

    Chef, cookbook writer and TV host Alton Brown appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Friday to promote his new book, Good Eats 3. As in most of culinary bits on Jimmy's show, alcohol is involved, but in the case of Alton, there isn't any food to nibble on with the swill. In fact, there isn't all that much swilling, either -- most of the segment is taken up by Brown's demonstrations of strange technologies for opening wine bottles. Alton even claims (rather absurdly) not to own a corkscrew; he dismisses them as "unitaskers."... more
