I’m a huge fan of Alton Brown, who was my dormmate’s devotion, and we would frequently watch Good Eats on the Food Network when it aired. A large portion of what I know about food can be attributed to Alton brown.
So when I read this, it upset me because Alton Brown is one of my favorite celebrity chefs. Google showed that not many people agree with the original poster’s assessment that he can be challenging to work with. Most people who have met him say he comes across as gruff and sarcastic but is actually very kindhearted. I’m relieved to know that there are other fans out there who see him the way I do!
