Alton Brown

Alton Brown's flair in the kitchen developed early with guidance from his mother and grandmother, a budding culinary talent he skillfully used later "as a way to get dates" in college. Switching gears as an adult, Alton spent a decade working as a cinematographer and video director, but realized he spent all his time between shoots watching cooking shows, which he found to be dull and uninformative. Convinced that he could do better, Alton left the film business and moved to Vermont to train at the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier.

About the Show

With each edition of Good Eats: Reloaded, show creator Alton Brown will be renovating, updating — and in some cases, repairing — classic episodes of the long-running series.
