I'm Just Here For More Food
Contributed by: Jennifer Wickes
"I'm Just Here For More Food" is a wonderful book that explains baking through science, in a funny manner, by none other than Alton Brown!
Alton Brown is the creator of the Food Network's "Good Eats", as well
as the author of two other books. He used to be a director of
commercials and music videos, but his passion for food took over, and
sent Brown and his wife to Vermont, where he attended culinary
school. Upon completion, he decided to use his media experience and
make a cooking show that was entertaining and educational.
By analyzing the process of baking through science, Alton Brown
creates wonderful baked goods. His recipes are easy-to-read, easy-to-
prepare, and the scientific reasoning behind each process makes so
much sense. Knowing what is happening when I am making cookies helps
when I am preparing a family favorite recipe and modifying it from
Alton Brown's study!
Like Alton Brown's previous books, there are no color photographs,
but rather, sketches and side notes hinting at Alton Brown's witty
sense of humor seen on his television show.
You have to try the cherry scones! They are fantastic!
This is another fantastic book by Alton Brown, and should be added to
"I'm Just Here For More Food"
