Alton Brown, host of “Good Eats” and “Iron Chef America”, has signed on to Food Network for three more years. He’ll be hosting more episodes of both shows.
I’m glad that’s happening. He’s one of the man reasons I’m cooking a lot more than I used to.
I met Alton at a book signing a couple of years ago, and he couldn’t have been nicer. When we were standing in line waiting for our books to be signed, the wife of one of the guys in front of us asked, “Are you engineers?” We told her we all were engineers. She asked, “What is it about Alton Brown and engineers? All these guys are engineers, and they love Alton!”
Probably just in the way he explains stuff, and keeps it all fun.
