Alton's Back for 3

Food Network and Alton Brown have agreed to a three-year deal, it was announced today by Brooke Johnson, President, Food Network.

He's coming back for more episodoes of "Good Eats," "Iron Chef America," and the latest installment of his popular "Feasting on Asphalt" series titled, "Feasting on Waves."

Way to go, Alton!
"Food Network is my home and I am staying home," said Brown. "I'm looking forward to producing more and varied shows with the network and am especially excited about Feasting on Waves, which will bring a whole new perspective to food."
Feasting on Waves, premiering summer 2008, will feature Alton Brown trading the road for the waves to explore the people, cultures and food of the Caribbean. He will uncover the real mom and pop restaurants and food stands, cook on the boat, dive, fish, whatever it takes to find interesting edibles outside of the resorts. From the deck of a boat, it's a modern day pirate's tale searching out history, cuisines and stories.

**************************************


Feasting on Waves sounds very cool and will (was?) be surely a blast to shoot. Anyone on that team need a P.A.? I happen to be available. Could probably make it to the Caribbean, you know, if need be. I'm generous like that.

I like Alton Brown a lot. In fact, he's one of my favorite FN personalities. I'm glad Good Eats will return and that he'll continue on ICA. But Feasting on Asphalt was deadly dull. While the Caribbean at least promises to be visually stimulating, FN hardly needs another "Watch This FN Personality Eat While Traveling" show.

I thought watching "FoA"1 was fascinating...Brown's reaction to consuming part--if not all--of a pig's knuckle was precious. (He hated almost every morsel.) I think he preferred the lutefisk in "FoA"2.

tiffany: yeah, they got a lot of travel shows, but Alton's do provide a bit more educational and quirky tidbits of knowledge, at least.

jeff: yeah. lutefisk. it's just fun to say. can't wait to see what else he tries.

This is great news. I don't know what I'd do without AB.

I can understand how some folks might be turned off by FoA, but I loved both series. I'm looking forward to the new series!

Alton has become my favorite FN personality. I love his quirky mixture of cooking know-how, food science, and gadgetry. While some might find his geeky productions a little campy, I think it really adds to his appeal. I'm happy he'll be back!

This is good news! I think AB is the best person on the FN who hasn't yet been fired, demoted, or publicly humiliated.

Personally I loved the motorcycling aspect and will miss it as more people have access to motorcycles than a boat on the carribbean...

I'm so looking forward to this! In my opinion, Carribean food has really not been well represented on this network (there are other islands besides Jamaica), so I'm quite thrilled that Alton will be exposing his fans to the many diverse and delicious foods of the region.

I really like the boats they use for Feasting on Waves. Does anyone happen to know what brand of boat they are??

I love the "Feasting On Waves" series by far and Alton just does an unique job of capturing the culture, the flavor, style and hospitality of the Island people. Their lifestyle is enviable, their warmth, humility and laid back attitude is refreshing...last but not least, their cuisine is exceptional, creative and focused on simplicity, home grown resources and the abundance of seafood, one of their staples and many blessings. I can't wait to try Johnny Cakes and the Fish Stew this weekend...
Alton,
I'm your new and loyal fan...
Keep up the good work!
Bon Apetite'
