Alton Brown talks about the SCIENCE behind cooking. I plan on making these DVD's a part of the girls homemaking curriculum. The one on cookies is FANTASTIC! These DVD's are especially great for those who want to deviate from recipes but really don't know how. Once you know the science behind why and how certain ingredients act together, you can change the recipe and have it come out! :D
He has a very funny style which really keeps you interested in the show. And once you cook eggs the Alton Brown way, you will never go back!
So how can you tell you have watched too many cooking shows? Your children turn every meal into their own cooking show! My girls are so cute! They have started doing their own cooking shows with each meal. Now of course, they don't know the science behind everything, but it is so cute to watch them.
"First you take the cracker and then you gently spread the oatmeal on it."
"After adding the sauce, toss gently until everything is all mixed together."
At least my girls are learning some cooking terminology. :D
