One day, back in the summer of 1992, I decided I wanted to make a television food show. I wasn't going to let the fact that I was little more than a hobbyist get in the way. The odyssey that followed became the program "Good Eats," which has managed to hold its own on the Food Network for over a decade. (It even won a Peabody Award, which is a pretty big deal.)
Good Eats: The Early Years is an encyclopedic work encompassing the show's first 80 episodes, from "Steak Your Claim" to "Casserole Over." Each show has its very own chapter, complete with remastered recipes, behind-the-scenes photos and lore, stunningly sophomoric illustrations, poetic narrative, and plenty of useful facts cleverly packaged in the form of knowledge concentrates (patent pending). We've even included bonus recipes that we've been selfishly hoarding over the years. Best of all, we've addressed a few nagging anomalies that have been chafing at our collective culinary conscience for all this time. Nothing big, mind you, but it does feel good to set a few things straight.
If you're a "Good Eats" fan, a cook, someone who eats, or just a sentient creature passing through the solar system, you'll want your very own copy of Good Eats: The Early Years. And don't worry, Good Eats: The Middle Ages is in the works as we speak.
May the food be with you.

The book covers a lot of information that is easy to miss in the show due to the speed of presentation. Plus it is very entertaining.
Here are the recipes in print, to sit and brouse. Its easy to find the details of the recipes while reading the commentary on how/what AB thinks about cooking. Nice to have them in hand rather than fishing around FN trying to find AB's recipes.
Any fan of the show would love this book, and any fan of cooking should have this book. It's filled with insights into both the episodes, and cooking techniques and science. Alton's quirky personality jumps off the pages, and his informative, yet fun instructions are the spoonful of sugar that makes learning the science of cooking go down. A great buy for anyone that wants to learn about cooking, not just reading recipes.
informative, witty, an excellent companion to the show. finally! the reason why things are the way they are! I've been cooking for 40 years and am still learning. thanks Alton .
I finally got something with Alton in it. It's scientific information plays an important role to fill the gap in my culinary study that I am taking-on this year. I work as a computer system software specialist, but I love to eat. And, I like to test in my kitchen. Some people like just to get the recipes and make wonderful dish. But I like to understand and test and create with food, so, this is a great book for me to accompany one of Alton's DVD series I also ordered. I recommend it as a gift to yourself or to anyone who loves the "good eats".
