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 such as "Good Eats "and" Iron Chef America "and" Cutthroat Kitchen." 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 with 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. 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 taste maker. That last part is from the PR office. Real people don t talk like that.
