Alton Brown Reveals the Trailer for “Good Eats: Reloaded”
Alton Brown’s cult-favorite show, Good Eats, which premiered in 1999 and ran all the way until 2012, is officially getting a makeover. Last week we learned the premiere date for Good Eats: Reloaded (October 15 on the Cooking Channel), and this week he shared a trailer of what is to come. Can you even handle all the excitement?
If you’ve somehow never watched Good Eats before, you’re in for a treat. The classic food show delves into the science and history of food and cooking, and might be best known for Alton’s ingenious kitchen hacks, which he reveals in his signature goofball humor (this simple egg carton mustard caddy is a perfect example of the way Alton’s brain works). It’s also the first place where Alton reveals his hatred of the uni-tasker — otherwise known as an appliance that only performs one function. In fact, many segments of Good Eats are dedicated to Alton’s advice on how to get the most out of your fancy kitchen appliances, like a French press.
Although Alton has been a constant presence on television since Good Eats went off the air — he’s the host of Iron Chef and has appeared on Beat Bobby Flay —there’s still been a noticeable hole in funny, informative food shows. That’s all about to change, though: In the show’s teaser, we get just a small taste of what Alton will be cooking up.
As Alton mentioned in the beginning of the trailer, Good Eats: Reloaded is all about “repairing” old shows. So while you won’t necessarily see “new” episodes, you’ll get revamped versions of the classics. You’ll have to wait a little longer for the new stuff — but in the meantime this should sate your appetite.
