Talking Watches: With Alton BrownO

Talking Watches: With Alton BrownO

Postby koimaster » July 18th 2017, 11:45am

One thing watch guys are not, is reserved about their opinions. And one thing that seemingly every watch guy has a suggestion about is who we should interview for the next episode of Talking Watches. Today, we'll be satisfying a whole bunch of you who have been after us to sit down with this gentleman: author, chef, television host, pilot, and all around awesome guy Mr. Alton Brown. Alton is both a culinary and a showbiz powerhouse; his science-of-food series Good Eats is a classic and he's also hosted Iron Chef America (which is back in production after a three-year absence) as well as this year's Iron Chef Gauntlet. He's also toured with his live show, Eat Your Science.

Over the course of my career in Talking Watches (which is coming up on four years now!), Alton Brown's name has been among the most often mentioned as a candidate. And so I'm very proud to present to you the official HODINKEE Talking Watches with Peabody and James Beard Award winner Alton Brown.

He's an all-around awesome guy! Says so right there!

Didn't know he was a pilot, brownie points in my book.
