Show Summary

Food can be fun! That's the message of Good Eats, where host Alton Brown explores the ways that food is prepared and the whys of food science. Along the way he and his cast of characters and experts slip in history, comedy, pop references, and (most of the time) a generous pinch of kosher salt. If you want to go beyond what to do into why you do it, then tune in to Good Eats on the Food Network!

    GoodEats - S15E3 Perhaps, opines Alton, the decline of civilization began with the decline of dinner, and the decline of dinner began with the loss of a particular consumable that takes some time to prepare: the roll. Alton plans to remedy that lack by showing how to make Parker House Rolls and Butter Flake Rolls, and for those with little time, how to make heat and serve Parker House rolls. Buttery and delicious, these American treats will bring diners back to the table.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Reclined on his sofa, a relaxed Alton discusses comfort, a watchword of twenty-first century marketing. Does comfort apply to foods? Of course it does – any food intended to change one's emotional state for the better is a comfort food, and one of the true classics is Lasagna, with its layers of meat and veggies and noodles. Alton's got a new take on the old classic, using a slow cooker. And for desert, he shows how to turn lasagna noodles into a delicious Lasagna Noodle Kugel.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Delicious, deeply chocolate, and decadent, Devil's Food Cake delights the palette, and in this outing, Alton shares his recipe for the treat, along with a scientific explanation of why just adding chocolate to the usual sort of cake recipe simply won't do. And of course, he needs some Chocolate Frosting for that cake. But if devil's food cake won't do, then perhaps a southern delicacy, Red Velvet Cake will be the right choice. That requires its own Cream Cheese Frosting. A delight of desserts awaits viewers here!

    GoodEats - S15E3 Alton tackles a Middle Eastern staple, the chickpea. Technically a bean and not a pea, it may be one of the oldest cultivated food plants. With the recipes he can prepare from it, Alton can feel like he has visited the Middle East without the expense and tedium of travel. He shows how to prepare Slow Cooker Chickpeas, and for those in more of a hurry Pressure Cooker Chickpeas. Then he explains how to use these to make Hummus amd Falafel, two popular foods. Finally, he explains leblebi, a kind of Roasted Chickpea that's a popular snack in Turkey.

    GoodEats - S15E3 The versatile egg is once again the subject of Alton's discourse, but this time his topic is egg foam – the mixture of air, egg whites and sugar we call meringue. He turns this versatile treat into three desserts: Australian favorite Pavlova, French inspired Oeufs a la Neige, and a recent American entry, Baked Alaska. Each uses a different sort of meringue, highlighting variety. Each has fallen out of favor recently, something Alton aims to correct.

    GoodEats - S15E3 The American flag backdrop signals the return of Alton's ongoing series, American Classics. Its goal is to rehabilitate the reputations of American dishes that have fallen out of favor, or perhaps that just need a little help. And what's more classic than an American fall tradition, pumpkin desserts. From Whole Pumpkin Pie to versatile Pumpkin Purée to the now traditional Pumpkin Pie, Alton restores the reputation of this classic American ingredient and the favorite dessert made from it.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Home gardeners, some looking for fresh food and others to save money, have begun planting a wider variety of vegetables, including the grower-friendy squash. Not much for flavor by itself, with the proper accessories and the right technique, squash can certainly be Good Eats. From a Zucchini Ribbon Salad opener to a Crookneck Squash Frittata or Overstuffed Pattypan Squash, this versatile vegetable can do it all. And when there's more squash for current needs, a few quick steps can prepare Frozen Summer Squash for availability any time.

    GoodEats - S15E3 All-Hallows Eve (Hallowe'en to most of us) has come again, and Alton is pondering what sort of treats to give to the wee goblins and ghoulies. Nothing store-bought, that's for sure. Instead, Alton retrieves a Brown family heirloom, an ancient book of recipes from members of the Brown clan far and wide. In it, he discovers how to make Candy Corn, how to brew up some Atomic Apples (which are caramel apples with a Brown family twist), and Popcorn Balls. All of it depends on the science of candy syrups.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Oats, says Dr. Xavier Brown, offer wide-ranging benefits. In fact, if you don't eat them, you might die! Well, not really: lawyers Itchy and Twitchy strip off the doctor's beard to reveal Alton, trying to sell his “Oat Cuisine” book. Instead of appealing to fear, Alton must appeal to culinary taste. And he does: with Leftover Oatmeal Bread, delicious Oat Waffles, and for those with a sweet tooth, The Oatiest Oatmeal Cookies Ever. They contain no wheat flour at all! And from South America, where the heat discourages oatmeal preparation, Alton finds a recipe for a delicious drink with the benefits of oats: Refresco de Avena.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Is tempura a monster that will conquer even stalwart cooks? It can seem so, but Alton has an approach using sound science and good technique that can bring the “pinnacle of the frying art” within the reach of ordinary cooks. Cutting technique, frying technique and proper batter preparation are all important to a good Tempura recipe. And when you're done frying, you need a dip. Alton's choice is Soy Ginger Dipping Sauce.

    GoodEats - S15E3 The American flag behind Alton signals another episode of the series-within-a-series called 'American Classics'. This time Alton's out to show that while the taco may have originated in Mexico, it has become thoroughly American, and a worthy replacement for any sandwich! He begins with the All American Beef Taco that depends on Taco Potion #19 and then presents his take on the Baja Fish Taco, which he makes with homemade Flour Tortillas and homemade Crema, a slightly fermented, spicy cream condiment.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Visiting the grocery store, Alton discovers a display of vanilla wafers. These cookies take him back to his childhood, and his mother's banana pudding recipe. She'd told him he would get that only when she was... and there's the recipe, right on the box! Alton resolves to make a batch, and discovers himself disappointed. He realizes that to get the right nostalgic effect, he'll need to start from scratch, and he does, first developing his own Vanilla Wafers, and then using them in Refrigerated Banana Pudding and Baked Banana Pudding.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Alton continues his ongoing appreciation of flat food by revisiting pizza. An earlier episode offered a pizza recipe that takes overnight, requiring a lot of planning, and produces a puffy crust. But some like a cracker-like, thin crust, and some like a pizza that takes less time. For both of these groups Alton has a solution: a thin, crispy, Neapolitan style pie. It's very hard to make a pie like this at home, because to do it right one needs a very hot brick oven. But Alton thinks he has the answer, offering three different approaches to Grilled Pizza.

    GoodEats - S15E3 From an overview of the origins of brunch, Alton explores a favorite brunch menu choice: Eggs Benedict. That encompasses several origins of the dish, a how to make your own English muffins (this is easier than you may think), how to build a proper Hollandaise sauce, and how to combine it all to produce a delicious bruch meal. Alton even offers a poaching technique that makes it easy to produce consistent quality poached eggs in any quantity, for those occasional large brunch gatherings. Brunch and eggs Benedict – Good Eats!

    GoodEats - S15E3 In the spring, young man's thoughts turn to.. .well, in Alton's case they turn to relief from winter's relentless march of root vegetables and squash. That relief comes from the early shoots of asparagus that poke through the earth while things are still very cold most places. Asparagus, the vegetable of kings, but now available to everyone near a mega-mart, or better yet, a farm. Alton offers up a simple Steamed Asparagus, an Asparagus Terrine cooked in... a bread loaf pan. And finally, Roasted Asparagus flavored with lemon and nutmeg. Every one of them, Good Eats!

    GoodEats - S15E3 Most homeowners own an outdoor grill, and most of them use it regularly during the grilling season from late spring, through summer and fall. Seeking variety, most outdoor cooks eventually take on gallus gallus domesticus, the common chicken. It's cheap, and most of us feel we have the skills to prepare it. But without the right technique, the outcome might instead be mealus yuckus. With the right technique, Alton's Ring of Fire Grilled Chicken will certainly be Good Eats!

    GoodEats - S15E3 Alton, like most of us, enjoys a fine steak. What he doesn't enjoy are the steakhouse prices, so in this episode he teaches viewers how to cook a delicious Dry-Aged Chimney Porterhouse Steak to perfection – from selection of the meat, through aging and cooking, and why it all works. And to cap the episode off, he offers a quick historical jaunt that reveals how this cut got its name.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Alton turns his attention to paella, the food and paella, the cooking vessel. The cooking vessel would seem a unitasker, but Alton reveals the versatility of paella, which makes this specialized pan useful indeed. He also shares his take on Paella and offers some variations eaten elsewhere in the world. Some folks eat snails in their paella. Alton, thankfully, does not take it to that extreme.

    GoodEats - S15E3 While rummaging through some old possessions, Alton chances across a fishing rod, and recalls happy times as a boy evading his responsibilities to go and fish in a nearby river, from which he'd routinely pull river catfish. That, in turn, leads him to explore the various virtues of river catfish. It's a southern staple, but Alton goes even further south – to South America for Catfish Ceviche, a kind of raw catfish salad. Then he's off to Southeast Asia to explore Tom Kha Pladuk, a catfish and coconut soup (there made with rather larger catfish). But one thing he won't do is give in to cultural stereotypes and explain how to fry the fish. However, he does know someone – the Colonel – who offers a Southern-Fried Catfish recipe that Alton admits is righteous.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Alton takes on a staple of Indian food – curry – only to reveal that it is actually not a staple of Indian food! Curry, as Westerners understand it, arose in England as a one consequence of the English colonization of India. Indians don't eat anything like the English dish, but they do eat a lot of interesting foods, blending spices specifically for each dish. Alton takes viewers through this step-by-step as he builds a Lamb Tikka Masala, cooked in a home made tandoor (Indian oven).

    GoodEats - S15E3 Another spin of the American Classics barrel finds Alton drawing a card bearing a recipe he does not want to make: chicken and dumplings. But, stung by email “criticisms” that his selection process is, ah, less than random, he takes on the challenge. Unfortunately, his family's idea of good dumplings and his wife's family's idea of good dumplings aren't the same, leading Alton to attempt both sorts: Chicken and Rolled Dumplings and Chicken and Dropped Dumplings. A cooked chicken (with a side order of science explaining the concept of pressure cooking) completes this American Classic – both versions – and restores family harmony. Well, until they start discussing the holidays...

    GoodEats - S15E3 Culinary lore abounds with interesting pairings, the results of chefs who experimented with ideas not entirely in line with the conventional wisdom. None is more fundamental than the pairing of salty and sweet. More recently, an understanding of the tongue's biochemistry explains why these flavors can work well together; Alton offers viewers this, and several recipes: Grapefruit Brûlée, Dark Salty Caramels, and something he calls Praline Bacon. Each marries salty with sweet, or sweet with salty, to produce unique and interesting flavors.

    GoodEats - S15E3 Alton stands before his viewers against the backdrop of the American flag. Usually that means he's going to rail at them about a particular American classic that has somehow gone wrong, or perhaps unappreciated. This episode isn't quite that. Instead, his complaint is about dishes invented elsewhere and corrupted here. And not even dishes, really, but beverages: the Bloody Mary and the Margarita. Fortunately, Alton knows how to fix them. With a dash of history and a smidge of science, and of course quality ingredients, he'll remake these cocktails as... Good Eats!

    GoodEats - S15E3 Alton examines the role alcohol plays as an ingredient. He considers its flammable nature, exploiting that property to cooke a flambé dish, Flaming Shrimp and Grits using bourbon. Then he considers the cooking properties of fortified wines, specifically, the Italian contribution called Marsala, in a tasty and easy dessert called Zabaglione. Finally, he shows how to use alcohol's power to extract flavors water can't reach to produce “the essence of lemon in beverage form” called Limoncello.

    Alton returns to the pantry – but not the American pantry. This time, he explores what a well-equipped Japanese pantry contains. It contains enough for several shows, really, but with just a few of the basic staples, added to some science and some know-how, he cooks up miso soup. Japanese cooking makes great use of fresh foods, but without the pantry staples, these will not go far.
