Overview

As Good Eats enjoys its 14th season on the Food Network, its popularity continues unabated. Fans can’t get enough of Alton Brown’s wildly inventive, science-geeky, food-loving spirit. It’s no wonder, then, that the first two volumes in STC’s Good Eats series were New York Times bestsellers.

Overview

As Good Eats enjoys its 14th season on the Food Network, its popularity continues unabated. Fans can’t get enough of Alton Brown’s wildly inventive, science-geeky, food-loving spirit. It’s no wonder, then, that the first two volumes in STC’s Good Eats series were New York Times bestsellers.

Like Volumes 1 and 2, Good Eats 3: The Later Years packs a bounty of information and entertainment between its covers. More than 200 recipes are accompanied by hundreds of photographs, drawings, and stills from the show, as well as lots of science-of-food facts, cooking tips, food trivia, behind-the-scenes glimpses—and bonus sock puppet instructions! In chapters devoted to everything from pomegranates to pretzels, mincemeat to molasses, Alton delivers delicious recipes along with fascinating background in a book that’s as fun to read as it is to cook from. Good Eats 3 will be a must-have addition to the bookshelves and kitchen counters of Alton lovers everywhere.

Praise for Good Eats 3: The Later Years:

“A victory lap” 
—Chicago Tribune

“The hefty book is filled with health information and tips on how to become a better home cook, all told in the breezy style that made Alton Brown’s show so accessible and fun. Plus there is a pattern and stickers for making sock puppets. She was wonderful, but Julia Child never taught you how to make a sock puppet, did she?”
 —Oregonian

“Alton’s cookbooks are non-traditional to say the least. In addition to great recipes, they’re loaded with humor, science, and great tips on selecting ingredients.”
Northeast Flavor magazine

“Much like Good Eats the show, the book can carry many labels—or, more to the point, defy labels altogether.”
—The Record

“His best yet.” —LAWeekly.com

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This exuberant, unconventional cookbook affectionately closes the door on Alton Brown's popular Good Eats show, summarizing its last 85 episodes while dispensing 225 recipes, sharing more than 1,000 photos and other illustrations, and providing bonus sock-puppet instructions and pullout stickers. Like the show; a pure delight.

    My Kitchen Bible Part III

    The three books in The Good Eats series are, essentially, transcripts for Alton Brown's show, Good Eats - which I watched religiously. I refer to these three books as my "Kitchen Bible." I love how Brown explains the science behind the recipes - it gives me so much more control of my food when I know how and why it cooks/tastes/feels a certain way.

    My only wish is that I had ordered this on my Nook - I've found that ereaders are wonderful for collecting recipe books!
