I picked up Season One for $15 at Target. I forgot how much I loved this show (Comcast removed Food Network from my cable tier, though I still get Travel Channel, and therefore Anthony Bourdain!).
Anyways, fun things:
Episode One: Steak! And cast iron skillets! Smart opener for the series. I love how he does part of the show about the food and part about how to cure and use cast iron.
Episode Two: Potatoes! The mandolin slicer! Alton really knows what Americans eat
. At least he's covered two of my favorite foods so far. I don't have a mandolin, but I think I need one. It would definitely make making scalloped potatoes easier.
xxx That's where I'm at, so far.
