    I love love love that show. Alton brown is my hero.

    I am currently watching an episode on scrambled eggs. He doesn't only show you tricks on how to make foods, but he goes into the science, history, and anthropological aspects of the food featured on the episode.

    By explaining the scientific method of how the food cooks you get a better understanding on how to handle the food an why you have to do it a certain way.

    It was Good Eats that first got me interested in nutritional anthropology

    I love that show too. My husband was so sweet and got me the first and second season on DVD. He makes me look at food in new ways. Love his way to cook a steak. Comes out crispy outside, warm and tender on the inside. Yummy!
