Alton Brown has long wooed the public with his quirky personality and encyclopedic food knowledge. In fact, Brown is solely responsible for getting me into cooking at a young age with his legendary Food Network program, Good Eats. The show explored a whimsical approach to cooking and encouraged viewers to understand their ingredients from a scientific level. Brown has brought this same energy to a live atmosphere with his show: Beyond The Eats. He is set to perform it live on November 27 at NJPAC.
Beyond The Eats is much more than a food show. In addition to food, the show is poised to include singing (from Brown himself), antics, puppetry and, of course, it wouldn’t be an Alton Brown show without extensive cooking experimentation.
Brown has found a way to blend his quirky personality with his love for the science of cooking. Each recipe or method offers a window into a deeper look at food and how it arrives on our plates. Guests watch live as Brown teaches a masterclass in both cooking and performance.
Diehard Alton Brown fans do not want to miss this as fan participation is set to take place. “For this new tour, there will be plenty of new therapy-inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but we’re also going to play a little game with the audience…” says Brown.
Beyond The Eats adds yet another masterful act to Brown’s resume. From New York Times best-selling books to hosting Food Network classics such as Iron Chef America, Alton Brown has proven himself as a Swiss army knife of sorts when it comes to culinary entertainment.
The show begins at 3:00 p.m. on November 27. Tickets are available now here. They’re selling fast, so don’t wait.
