Read Alton Brown: EveryDayCook Online Free - My name is Alton Brown and I wrote this book. It’s my first in a few years because I’ve been busy with television projects such as Good Eats and Iron Chef America and Cutthroat Kitchen. When I haven’t been hosting or producing, I’ve been developing digital media projects and touring my live stage shows and collecting awards. My publisher made me say that last part. But then I started thinking that I wanted to do something personal. And that’s what EveryDayCook is. This is the food I cook and eat on a day-to-day basis, from morning to late at night and everywhere in-between. There’s still plenty of science and hopefully some humor here (my agent says that’s my “wheelhouse”) but unlike my other books, a lot of attention went into the photos, which were actually taken with my iPhone (take that, Instagram) and are suitable for framing. As for the recipes, which are arranged by time of day, they’re mighty tasty. Highlights include
• Breakfast: Buttermilk Lassi, Overnight Coconut Oats, Nitrous Pancakes
• Coffee Break: Cold Brew Coffee, Lacquered Bacon, Seedy Date Bars
• Noon: Smokey the Meat Loaf, Fish Sticks and Custard, EnchiLasagna (or Lasagnalada)
• Afternoon: Green Grape Cobbler, Crispy Chickpeas, Savory Greek Yogurt Dip
• Evening: Onion Oxtail Soup, Mussels-O-Miso, Garam Masalmon Steaks,
• Anytime: Pâté des Sardine, Roasted Chile Salsa, Peach Punch Pops
• Later: Cider House Fondue, Open Sesame Noodles, Midnight Mug Cake for 2
So let’s review: 101 recipes with mouthwatering, artful photos, a plethora of useful insights on methods, tools, and ingredients all written by an “award-winning and influential educator and tastemaker.” That last part is from the PR office. Real people don’t talk like that.

This is a great cookbook by Alton Brown! It has a good mix of recipes, and a few healthy ones. All are easy recipes. Worth keeping in your kitchen!

Probably not many people actually “read” a cookbook, right?
But when that book is by Alton Brown, you are doing yourself a disservice to simply look at the recipes. It’s funny, insightful, and fascinating. I’d expect nothing less from the creator of “Good Eats” the hands down best show ever on Fo...

This is not a beginners cookbook; however, it is highly entertaining. I did actually read it cover to cover and enjoyed myself, even though I will probably never cook or eat anything in it because I am a picky child.
There are a ton of great dishes and the pictures are amazing. All taken with an...

Two things I like in a cookbook...BIG pictures and selections that include something I might actually eat. Winner, winner...chicken piccata dinner. Oh, and a good index. I may even try fish sticks for the very first time. Seriously.

A lot of pictures, humor, and a dash of science behind these recipes. These were chosen by AB because they are his favorites, his go-to dishes. I may try a few of these, but many are outside my taste zone - not to mention the equipment requirements.

Oh, Alton. I loved Good Eats and enjoy his Good Eats book series with all the science and hopped this would be some those lines. Sadly, this just want meant for me, which is fine. I didn't expect much from the recipes since I'm vegan so that was no real surprise. The thing that annoyed me though...

I love Brown's attitude toward food. It's obvious he likes to eat, and his recipes are always both accurate and easy to follow. My skill as a cook owes him some credit. This time there are a couple of things to say. One refers to an oyster po' boy. Of course the instructions for cooking the oyste...

I really loved reading the section on hardware especially but also pantry and methods. Alton Brown has such a good way of explaining things with a little fun snarky tongue in cheek thing going on.
As for browsing the recipes, there are some I want to try, some that sound good but also seem really...

I adore Alton Brown. He is, in fact, on the list of people I'd like to have a martini with (especially if he wants to make the appetizers!). His recipes are always solid & this collection is no exception. Some of these are recipes he's already shared- on line or on tv- but there are also plen...

Several of these recipes have already become regular staples for me (Overnight Coconut Oats & My Big Fat Greek Salad), and there are a few others I really want a chance to try. (Especially the tomato soup, now that I have a pressure cooker!)
