P– called at 6 PM on Thursday saying that Alton Brown is having a book signing at the Union Square B&N for his new book, I’m Just Here for More Food (link to a competing bookseller). My night was free, so I hopped on the next train there. She doesn’t really get the phenomenon that is Good Eats, but then again, she doesn’t get the Food Network. She only gets it when I explain that he knows how to make cream puffs and granitas. As AB puts it, he’s not a chef, but the world’s grooviest home economics teacher. He really is that good. In additional news, Food Network has renewed Iron Chef America with Brown as the host for another 10 episodes. Of course, I bought a book.
