Good Eats 2: The Middle Years

Good Eats 2: The Middle Years picks up where the bestselling Good Eats: The Early Years left off. Showcasing everything Alton Brown fans (and they are legion!) have ever wanted to know about his award-winning television show, The Middle Years is chock-full of behind-the-scenes photographs and trivia, science-of-food information, cooking tips, and—of course—recipes.


 


Brown’s particular genius lies in teaching the chemistry of cooking with levity and exuberance. In episodes such as “Fit to Be Tied” (meat roulades), “Crustacean Nation” (crab), and “Ill-Gotten Grains” (wheat products), Brown explains everything from how to make the perfect omelet to how to stuff your own sausages. With hundreds of entertaining photographs, along with Brown’s inimitable line drawings and signature witty writing, this comprehensive companion book conveys the same wildly creative spirit as the show itself.

    I caught one episode of Alton’s show and was very impressed with the way he explained so much of why things happen in cooking so thought I’d try buying a book – it would have to be one of the best cooking books I’ve ever read – I’d even go one step further and say it isn’t just a cook book… it is a REFERENCE book. If you are a person who likes to understand the ‘why’ behind things (in this case cooking) then Alton’s books are definitely for you! Couldn’t recommend it highly enough!!

    Only available used and in hardcover. This cookbook covers seasons 7 thru the first half of season 10 of Alton Brown’s show “Good Eats”. As of August 2017 you can still catch reruns. Each session contains an education part followed by a recipe part. It looks like the education parts ase abbreviated transcripts from the show. He explains how the recipe works then takes you step-by-step through the procedure. If you’re a fan of the show or just have a thing for recipes with strange names (Dr. Strangeloaf, Wonton Ways, Squid Pro Quo) then these books are for you! This volume also contains a DVD of short subjects.

    Yippie! Now I have all 3 in the series. I am really happy with the book. Alton Brown is the best chef and food authority on TV and in books. He gets a little silly sometimes, but if you can get past that, he makes cooking make sense. I have learned so much and been able to fix the problems I’ve had with some recipes over the years of listening to his advice. He breaks down the reasons why certain ingredients and methods work so that it’s easy to understand. I would highly recommend watching his shows and buying his books. Since I’m originally from the town next door to where he lives, it’s particularly helpful to me when he reviews southern recipes, but when he focuses on food from other regions, I learn something new. He’s the best!
