Alton Brown's Gear for Your Kitchen Paperback / softback
by Alton Brown
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, and used a C-clamp as a nutcracker.
Brown isn't interested in novelty, 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.
