Alton Brown, host of the Food Network’s “Good Eats,” discusses the role of TV chefs and written recipes in learning how to cook, emphasizing the importance of one-on-one instruction. “I can quantify every little thing, but in the end, there is just the manual activity of cooking,” he says. “And it is amazing how many ways there are to foul it up.”
The creator/producer/host of the hit Food Network show “Good Eats,” best-selling cookbook author and source of culinary wit and wisdom on “Iron Chef America,” sits down to talk. Interviewed by Julia Moskin, New York Times food writer.
