Alton Brown

Alton Brown was directing TV commercials when he got the crazy idea to go to culinary school and reinvent the cooking show. The result was Good Eats, an irreverent, science-forward program that kept Brown gainfully employed for over twenty years.

Along the way he also hosted iconic programs like Iron Chef America, and Cutthroat Kitchen. Brown’s live culinary variety shows have toured to sold-out crowds across the country since 2013, and his recently published Good Eats: The Final Years made the New York Time’s Best Seller list.

Brown has been awarded two James Beard awards and a Peabody for his television work. He lives in Atlanta and New York City with his wife Elizabeth and a pair of nefarious canines.
