Extended Interview: Food Network Host Alton Brown
Alton Brown has become an icon of the food world…but he’s not a celebrity chef. He’s more like a culinary raconteur.
His first television show Good Eats started on a local PBS station, then ran for 14 seasons on the Food Network. The show used comedy to explain the science of cooking every day food at home.
Since then, Brown has become the face of Food Network, hosting shows like Iron Chef America, Feasting on Asphalt, and now Cutthroat Kitchen. Brown is currently on his Edible Inevitable Tour, a live variety show coming to Fort Wayne this Thursday.
WBOI’s Virginia Alvino recently chatted with Brown about reality food shows, traveling the country, and the future of the American dinner table.
