True. I think he realizes that, hence the Quick & Easy part and quick and easy doesn't have to equate to bland / boring food.

FWIW, they've seriously reduced the boujee'ness of their recipes. You no longer have to dirty every bowl and cutting board in your house to make their recipes anymore.

Also, Alton Brown's grilled cheese recipe is deliberately done as a smack against people calling what they're making "grilled cheese" when, grammatically, it's actually a "griddled sandwich containing cheese". Also, his recipe isn't really all that difficult at all...

He has another grilled cheese recipe that involves mashing the sandwich between 2 hot cast iron pans to cook it.

Its weird, I grew up with Joy of Cooking as a staple in my household, but I've never looked through it once I began cooking, and to the best of my knowledge I've never cooked a recipe from it.

Time to look it up.

Media star food is funny.

I'm in the food service industry, interact with professional chefs every day. Most of those guys can do a Michelin grade meal while talking sports and listening to music. And they do it in our commercial kitchen to test recipes while I watch.

What they have to say about television food is worthy of a show like MST3K being on the cooking channels or PPV.

But the common thread of success is clean, fresh, correctly prepped. (Sorry, fans of the clown, the McRib doesn't qualify on any of those fronts.)

And Alton's grilled cheese, despite the verbiage, is all bread. Ugh.

But it still tastes good.

And with the way the winds are blowing today, I think we're eating lunch "to go", so perhaps McD's with a McR is, well, "in the wind" today.

Yep, I'm good with 5 to 10 ingredients. More than that and I check out.

I like Alton Brown because of his explanation of the cooking methods. Such as why this sauce should be heated to 240F or why these two ingredients should be mixed together before adding them to the main entre. It's like a mini chemistry and physics show.

I prefer recipes that don't require that I have to buy 5-10 ingredients that I don't keep around among the 18 spices I use and the other ingredients that cover 90% of the recipes out there.

So, a question to the other people who spend some time cooking meals. What stove/stoveTop do you use to do your cooking?

Here is mine:

Here is mine:
I have an identical style but without the center burner

Would definitely upgrade but I don't "need" it and it's built into a granite counter.
