Devoted viewers of Alton Brown's Good Eats now have the perfect place to jot down their favorite tips and quips-as well as their own food notes. This journal, which echoes the design of Brown's best-selling I'm Just Here For the Food, makes a great gift for any foodie.
Alton Brown is the host of the Food Network's Good Eats. He began his TV career as a cameraman and commercial director, but when he wasn't shooting he was cooking and watching cooking shows, which he thought were dull and uninformative. Tired of the griping, Brown's wife, DeAnna, suggested they do something about it. They moved to Vermont, where Brown attended the New England Culinary Institute. During the years that followed, he concocted a new kind of food show, one that blends wit with wisdom, history with pop culture, and science with common cooking sense. Alton and DeAnna live in the southern United States with their daughter, Zoey, "one worthless hound dog," and an iguana named Spike.
My fault, I guess. I am not quite sure what I was expecting but certainly NOT a totally blank book. There is very little room to put a recipe and THEN add notes. You would have to hand copy everything in half to space. A full size binder would be better. I print out the recipes from food network that I would like to try and then scribble on them as needed. It IS a good idea and I will probab ly use a full size notebook when I retire next month.
With a few interspersed sayings like, "The most underused tool in the kitchen is the brain." and memories of times when I've worked in kitchens as a Prep Cook, Grill Cook, or Baker at a Girl Scout Camp, I feel this is the most useful tool any cook can have. Write it down! When you adjust something, write down the results. There's a place for a shopping list and the book is small enough to carry to the store.
This is a useful tool to keep notes and tidbits of information in 1 place for easy retrieval
the only thing that disappointed me was that i thought i was getting a copy of alton's notes , instead i got a blank book for my own notes. you need to be clear that you aren't getting any of altons notes , just a blank notebook
I have a few family recipes that would be lost if I did not write them down. Some of these recipes are from my grandmother and some from my mother. They are both gone now and I sure would miss out on the recipes if they weren't written out. Now I can pass them on to my grandson who likes to help me in the kitchen.
