About

Good Eats is a television cooking show, created and hosted by Alton Brown, which aired in North America on Food Network and Cooking Channel. Brown explores the science and technique behind the cooking, the history of different foods, and the advantages of different kinds of cooking equipment. Each episode of Good Eats has a distinct theme, which is typically an ingredient or a certain cooking technique, but may also be a more general theme such as Thanksgiving. In the tenth anniversary episode, Alton Brown stated that the show was inspired by the idea of combining Julia Child, Mr. Wizard, and Monty Python

The series ran from July 7, 1999 to February 10, 2012 (244 episodes and 8 specials)
