Alton Brown calls an end to 'Good Eats'

Alton Brown called an end to his instructional half-hour show yesterday, announcing it to fans as his first post on Twitter:

"G.E. fans, I've decided to cut the half hour series at 249 eps. There will be 3 new 1 hour eps this year and that's it. But mourn not. New things brew on the horizon..."good" things."


The final new, half-hour episode aired last week.

The pilot for "Good Eats" aired originally on Chicago's WTTW in 1998 before it was picked up by the Food Network. It became such a staple of the network that reruns aired twice daily for years. It also became one of the Food Network's most respected shows, picking up Peabody and Beard awards along the way (including a Beard on Friday for "TV food personality/host"), largely because of Brown's genial Mr. Science-meets-Chef approach.

I had to google him since I didn't recognize his name.

But I've seen him on the food network in Canada. He's so quirky... I watched his show from time to time.

However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Loved the show, but it seems to suggest something similar will replace it.

Re: Alton Brown calls an end to 'Good Eats'

I liked the concept of good eats, but not the real world application. He made things way too complicated and involved on his show.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

The fried turkey scaffold with pulley rigging comes to mind ... I swear that thing looked more dangerous than using a conventional method.

Re: Alton Brown calls an end to 'Good Eats'

AB introduced me to the wonderful world of brining, for which I'll be eternally grateful. But what does this mean for his hot nemesis on the show, the alluring W (Vickie Eng)?
