Alton Brown Bio
Alton Brown’s flair in the kitchen developed early with guidance from his mother and grandmother, who nurtured his budding culinary talent, and which he skillfully used later “as a way to get dates” in college. Switching gears as an adult, Alton spent a decade working as a cinematographer and video director, but realized that he spent all his time between shoots watching cooking shows, which he found to be dull and uninformative. Convinced that he could do better, Alton left the film business and moved to Vermont to train at the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vt. Soon after, Alton tapped all of his training to create Good Eats, a smart and entertaining food show that blended wit with wisdom, history with pop culture and science with common cooking sense.
Alton not only wrote and produced the shows but also starred in each offbeat episode on Food Network; the series premiered in 1999. Alton Brown’s first book, I’m Just Here for the Food (Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 2002), won the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Cookbook in the Reference category, and was one of the best-selling cookbooks of 2002.
Alton released his second of the series, Good Eats 2: The Middle Years (Stewart, Tabori & Chang), in October 2010. Showcasing everything Alton Brown fans have ever wanted to know about his award-winning television show, Good Eats 2: The Middle Years is chock-full of behind-the-scenes photographs and trivia, science-of-food information, cooking tips and — of course — recipes. Alton published the third volume of the series, Good Eats 3: The Later Years, in October 2011.
Alton appears regularly as the resident food historian, scientist and commentator on the Food Network series Iron Chef America, and is the host/judge on reality series The Next Iron Chef and Iron Chef Gauntlet. Based on the Japanese cult classic (originally produced by Fuji Television) that launched on Food Network five years ago, Iron Chef America pits some of America’s favorite chefs against the inspired food wizardry of American Iron Chefs Bobby Flay, Mario Batali, Masaharu Morimoto, Cat Cora and Next Iron Chef winners Michael Symon, Jose Garces and Marc Forgione.
