About this item

My name is Alton Brown, and I wrote this book. It's my first in a few years because I've been a little busy with TV stuff and interwebs stuff and live stage show stuff. Sure, I've been cooking, but it's been mostly to feed myself and people in my immediate vicinity - which is really what a cook is supposed to do, right? Well, one day I was sitting around trying to organize my recipes, and I realized that I should put them into a personal collection. One thing led to another, and here's EveryDayCook. There's still plenty of science and hopefully some humor in here (my agent says that's my "wheelhouse") , but unlike in my other books, a lot of attention went into the photos, which were all taken on my iPhone (take that, Instagram) and are suitable for framing. As for the recipes, which are arranged by time of day, they're pretty darned tasty. Highlights include:

* Morning: Buttermilk Lassi, Overnight Coconut Oats, Nitrous Pancakes
* Coffee Break: Cold Brew Coffee, Lacquered Bacon, Seedy Date Bars
* Noon: Smoky the Meat Loaf, Grilled Cheese Grilled Sandwich, "EnchiLasagna" or "Lasagnalada"
* Afternoon: Green Grape Cobbler, Crispy Chickpeas, Savory Greek Yogurt Dip
* Evening: Bad Day Bitter Martini, Mussels-O-Miso, Garam Masalmon Steaks
* Anytime: The General's Fried Chicken, Roasted Chile Salsa, Peach Punch Pops
* Later: Cider House Fondue, Open Sesame Noodles, Chocapocalypse Cookie

So let's review: 101 recipes with mouthwatering photos, a plethora of useful insights on methods, tools, and ingredients all written by an "award-winning and influential educator and tastemaker." That last part is from the PR office. Real people don't talk like that.



About the Author

Alton Brown

My name is Alton Brown and I wrote this book. It's my first in a few years because I've been busy with television projects like Good Eats, Iron Chef America and Cutthroat Kitchen. When I haven't been hosting or producing, I've been developing digital media projects and touring my live stage shows and collecting awards. My publisher made me say that last part. But then I started thinking that I wanted to do something personal. And that's what EveryDayCook is. This is the food I cook and eat on a day-to-day basis, from morning to late at night and everywhere in-between. There's still plenty of science and hopefully some humor here (my agent says that's my "wheelhouse") but unlike my other books, a lot of attention went into the photos, which were actually taken with my iPhone (take that, Instagram) and are suitable for framing. As for the recipes, which are arranged by time of day, they're mighty tasty.
