Alton Brown’s Ten Things He’s Pretty Sure He’s Sure About Food

Alton Brown Edible Inevitable

We caught Alton Brown’s “Edible Inevitable” tour last Saturday night.

Big fun. Music, comedy, and food demonstrations of unusual size.

One of the highlights is the latest version of AB’s “Ten Things I’m Pretty Sure I’m Sure About Food.” I know I don’t have these in order, but here they are:

  2. Learn to salt
  3. Trout does not belong in ice cream
  4. The most important thing to learn to cook is eggs
  5. The best cook in the world is your spouse
  6. The most important piece of equipment in your kitchen is the table
  7. America, Heck Yeah
  8. Raisins are always optional
  9. Wash your mushrooms
  10. Never eat an airport shrimp cocktail
