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

Alton Brown has smoked a salmon in a cardboard box, roasted a prime rib in a terracotta flower pot, cooked onion soup in an electric skillet, used a C-clamp as a nutcracker, and a binder clip to hold a probe thermometer in place. While his machinations may border on the Rube Goldberg-esque, it is among Brown's missions to present the best - and often the simplest - tool to get the job done. Following an introduction that discusses a little bit of kitchen history and some advice on room layout and organization, the book is divided into 9 chapters: Big Things with Plugs, Pots and Pans, Sharp Things, The Tool Box, Small Things with Plugs, Storage and Containment, It Came From the Hardware Store, Surfaces, and Safety and Sanitation.
