Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Tater-Tot and blue cheese casserole

    • bching on February 22, 2019

      A big disappointment. I like tater tot casseroles and I like blue cheese, so I thought a tater tot casserole with blue cheese would be extra good. I was wrong: the blue cheese overpowered all other ingredients.

  • Martini vinaigrette

    • bching on June 10, 2019

      Delicious in a salad served with bresaola

  • Winter greens gratin

      Hmm, will probably substitute panko bread crumbs for the Ritz crackers.

Publishers Text

Dedicated viewers of Alton Brown's acclaimed Food Network show Good Eats know of his penchant for using unusual equipment. He has smoked a salmon in a cardboard box, roasted prime rib in a flowerpot, he's just devoted to using the best - and simplest - tool for the job.

Alton Brown's Gear For Your Kitchen offers honest, practical advice on what's needed and what isn't, what works and what doesn't. For instance: You only need three knives, but they are a lifetime investment. And don't bother with that famous countertop grill - it doesn't get hot enough to properly sear. In his signature science-guy style, Brown begins with advice on kitchen layout and organization, then gets to the lowdown on these cooking elements: Big Things with Plugs; Pots and Pans; Sharp Things; The Tool Box; Small Things with Plugs; Storage and Containment; and Safety and Sanitation.

Gear For Your Kitchen is essential for all of Brown's fans as well as anyone who wants a good guide to great kitchen gear. With more than 125,000 hardcover copies in print, this indispensable - and highly entertaining - book is now offered in a paperback edition that every home cook can afford.
