The wit and wisdom of Alton Brown

Self-portrait of the artist as a tired man

On cooking with induction:
“That’s gonna work lickety-split because that’s induction. That’s demons, isn’t it? That’s not science. That’s evil spirits.”

On Feasting in Asphalt in Memphis:
“Memphis just may be the center of the culinary universe. I’m not saying that’s true, but it could be.”

On high fructose corn syrup:
“Food doesn’t make people fat. People make people fat.”

Audience member:
“Have you ever thought about doing a vegan episode?”
“I would do a vegan episode if I could find some vegans to cook.”
