About Alton Brown

Alton Brown Alton Brown's flair in the kitchen developed early with guidance from his mother and grandmother. As an adult, Alton spent a decade working as a cinematographer and video director, but realised he spent all his time between shoots watching cooking programmes which he found to be dull and uninformative. Convinced that he could do better, Alton left the film business and trained at culinary school. Soon after, Alton tapped all of his training to create Good Eats, a smart and entertaining food show that blends wit with wisdom, history with pop culture and science with common cooking sense. Alton not only writes and produces the shows but also stars in each offbeat episode.
