Feasting on Asphalt

Anyone else looking forward to this show? Alton Brown has the best job in the world. Ride around on a motorcycle looking for tasty food? Yep, I could handle that!

Why do some people say he is not a chef?

He is, and has won the James Beard Award NUMEROUS times. Although his emphasis is on molecular gastronomy, I like his aproach on cooking and fundamentals.

it is the study of the chemical reactions that make food work, and how things function on a, well, molecular level.

Though he is a fundamentalist, chefs Like Hamaro Cantu at MOTO Chicago, and F. Adria,of Bulliea(sp) in Spain, practice the art and make some amazing dishes...the food of the future.

AB is a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute. I don't believe he ever worked as a chef.

I love Alton too, and I'm really looking forward to his new show.

Although I'm not really a fan of the "watch people eat at various places around the country" type shows, I know Alton will have a different spin on it. I'm certain there will be some great info in there and he can't help but be entertaining, it's just part of his personality!

Will definitely be watching!

I ienjoy watching the folks eat at different places. I've been all over the country, and may go to some of the places on these shows. So it's cool to see a review in advance. Although I don't think I've ever seen RR give a bad review of any place she's ever been. And every first bite is to die for.

He reminds me of bill nye the science guy. Remember bill nye? I just love Alton even more though. I wouldn't be attaracted to him if it weren't for his brains though and that sexy geekiness about him. He's hot the same way Bob Sagot used to be hot. Before Bob went... you know... like this.
