I’ve fallen behind in reviewing shows I seen recently and will catch up as quickly as I can. But jumping ahead is a limited run show I saw yesterday at the Ethel Barrymore Theater in New York City – Alton Brown Live; Eat Your Science. His limited run takes him only through this weekend in the Big Apple but he continues the tour of his show around the country going forward. Go see it.
It helps if you are a fan of his work from the Food Channel, for me especially his Good Eats program that helped to teach me to cook when I was moving from baking to the stove. I have several of his books and enjoy his recipes. I like that program better than his current gig of Cutthroat Kitchen, but then I am not a fan of reality TV of any flavor. The good news is that he hinted there would be some kind of new version of Good Eats coming up in 2017. He pretty much exhausted every food and classic recipe in the original series so I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
His current show is a great mix of music, cooking thoughts and the science of how it all works. You’ll be entertained and smile a lot. See it if you have the chance.
