...and rolls to a finish, I guess. I own Alton Brown DVD's of his shows and I also own 'Good Eats 1&2'. Anyone who wants to learn how to cook for themselves and for their family will benefit enormously from the knowledge in this series. Starting at the neighborhood 'Megamart', Alton tells his audience what to buy, how to turn it into tasty and nutritious "Good Eats" and why his technical recommendations work! As an example, which bacon do you take home from the supermarket display? How can you make it crispy? Why does frying bacon suddenly burn and how can that be prevented? Does all espresso coffee have to be dark roasted? Both techniques and recipes are 'first rate' for home cooks. This edition may focus a bit more on 'hyphen American' cuisine, like Creole Red Beans and Rice or Asian-American items or foods from the Latino culture, German-or Italian-American foods, but it includes plenty of staples like great cornbread and fried chicken. Alton adds things like 'grilled pizza' and other bread techniques. Powerful antioxident ingredients like Pomegranate juice show up (as juice and as 'molasses'); so readers are kept well up-to-date on trends and nutritional science. These topics are also hallmarks of the series. There are additional recipes from all the usual sections of the cookbook world of ingredients and I hope to try a good many of them before I am finished with the book. Fans of the Food Network show "Good Eats" will also enjoy the continued 'outtakes' photos and 'behind the scenes' information. The energy and drive evident in the first series carry through this product as well and it seems that this is a 'matter of pride' for Alton and his 'merry band'. Did I mention that Alton includes a bonus feature: his very own design for a 'sock puppet', complete with paste-on eyes, tongue(s) and mouth(s)? All of the whimsy that makes this series 'one of a kind' remains intact.

This came out just in time for fall! I'm slowly going through the recipes. The chiffon cupcakes were a hit with my coworkers. I made the pumpkin pie which was AMAZING. About to start working on the apple pie. All the recipes I've tried from his show have turned out amazing. Lots of recipes, easy to understand and follow. Eventually I will make the sock puppet, teehee!

This is a great finsh to a well done trilogy. This book is as good as the others. I believe each person will like one book more than another just based on the number of recipes they personally like per book. Human nauture! This cook book reads very well and has all the tips that AB as given over the years. He reiterates his hatred of uni taskers and proves his prowess has a handyman. Well done Mr. AB, Well done!

I love Good Eats and I am sad Alton has finally stopped making the show. I own all the DVDs I was able to find and the first 2 books have only a couple of episodes not on those discs. This book has several more. If you are like me and own the DVDs and use the recipes from there, you may want to purchase this book to round out your collection. Hopefully there will be more DVDs in the near future to fill in all the gaps.

So far, my favorite book in this trilogy was the second one--it has the most useful recipes for me an my family and comes with a DVD of Good Eats shorts. As mentioned, this one also contains several "shows" that are not to be had on DVD yet. After having more time to look through recipes in this book that I am not already familiar with, I may change my mind and suggest this one as the best, but that's how it stands for now.

Also, if you like Alton Brown, you may consider Mark Bittman. How To Cook Everything: Simple Recipes for Great Food is probably his most popular book, but The Food Matters Cookbook: 500 Revolutionary Recipes for Better Living is also very good.

Got this for my wife to give me as a gift. It's the third of three and I have all of them now! Loved the show and love the books. "Fun, funny, entertaining, and educational" describes books and shows. I refer to mine frequently. A nice thing about AB is he explains well enough to encourage me experiment on my own.

Its sort of sad that this is the last in the series. Unlike most cookbooks, I read this as they are filled with interesting information. Sometimes know that information explains why some bread your making is working - or not working! Mr. Brown is one of the most interesting 'chef personalities' from the Food Network - if you get the opportunity to attend one of his shows I encourage you to do so. There are various printings of these books, the first printings at least have a dust jacket, and the later ones don't. Since I will not only read these but cook from them, the dust jackets are not the necessary. Some, maybe all, have a CD - oddly enough, I have not watched them as yet other than the first one. If you are a inquisitive cook, new to cooking, or very experienced you will find the recipes easy to follow as they are presented in a clear and logical format.
