    I love the science and the theater of Good Eats, but some of the early recipes were disappointing. In this volume he goes back and admits “yeah, my biscuits were okay, but I’ve tweaked it and tweaked it until they were worthy of Ma Mae.” Same with a few of his other early recipes, like his golden cake (8 egg yolks!) Lots of new material, though, with the same emphasis on understanding “why” not just “how”, such as in his recipe for turkey Tikka Masala and a side bar on whey-based marinades.

I tried reading this as a library book on my old black and white Kindle but struggled to read the text on pages with pictures. There are a LOT of pictures with text. Had better luck with my iPad mini, but it was still frustrating to have zoom and scroll. Got as far as Scallion Pancakes (yum!!) before I just added a paper copy to my Amazon wishlist.

    If you only read one cookbook in your life...make it be Alton Brown's Good Eats series. Not only are the recipes superb but he includes all the food history and chemistry which really adds interest such as: all medjool dates descend from a single tree from Saharan Morocco; the first known mention of pudding in European literature took place in Homer's "The Odyssey"; it was the Dutch-not the Belgians who 1st made square waffles and the word vinegar comes from a French word meaning "sour wine".

    The fourth book in the series Alton Brown highlights some of the recipes on his television show with comments and improvements and updates. If you are familiar with the shows this will be a fun nostalgic update. If you haven't watched the shows you will want to find them (probably streaming somewhere). If not it is still a book filled with excellent recipes and lots of great information.

    This cookbook is BIG! I'd already cooked a lot of the things in it from watching Good Eats, but I love having a physical cookbook. And it's Alton Brown so it's full of science, sarcasm, and deliciousness. This cookbook is BIG!
