Praise for "Good Eats 3: The Later Years:
A victory lap
" Chicago Tribune
" The hefty book is filled with health information and tips on how to become a better home cook, all told in the breezy style that made Alton Brown's show so accessible and fun. Plus there is a pattern and stickers for making sock puppets. She was wonderful, but Julia Child never taught you how to make a sock puppet, did she?
Alton's cookbooks are non-traditional to say the least. In addition to great recipes, they re loaded with humor, science, and great tips on selecting ingredients.

Much like "Good Eats" the show, the book can carry many labels or, more to the point, defy labels altogether.
