This quintessential food-science-and-cooking-technique title is now available in ebook! This version is best viewed on your tablet device. Also available in a text-only reflowable format, for use on a wider range of platforms.

Alton Brown is a great cook, a very funny guy, and—underneath it all—a science geek who's as interested in the chemistry of cooking as he is in eating. (Well, almost.) At long last, the book that Brown's legions of fans have cooked from and celebrated and spilled stuff on for years is available as an ebook, providing a brighter, shinier record of his long-running, award-winning Food Network TV series, Good Eats.

From "Pork Fiction" (on baby back ribs), to "Citizen Cane" (on caramel sauce), to "Oat Cuisine" (on oatmeal), every hilarious episode is represented. The book is illustrated with behind-the-scenes photos taken on the Good Eats set. It contains more than 140 recipes and more than 1,000 photographs and illustrations, along with explanations of techniques, lots of food-science information (of course!), and more food puns, food jokes, and food trivia than you can shake a wooden spoon at.
