It's time to continue the Famous Dawgs series.
Today I'd like to bring you the third Famous Dawg: Alton Brown
Alton Brown is one of the best, if not the best food personality on television. If you watch Food Network, you've probably seen him before. His show Good Eats has been on Food Network since 1999, and it has been on the air ever since. The show truly makes cooking fun and surprisingly educational, as Brown always explores the historical and scientific aspects of the dish he's preparing. There are always plenty of humorous moments as well. Brown also has been the commentator on Iron Chef America, co-hosted The Next Iron Chef, and has another show called Feasting on Asphalt.
Well, this one is easy. According to Wikipedia, Alton Brown attended undergraduate school at the University of Georgia and received a degree in drama. Interestingly, he started out working in cinematography and was director of photography for an R.E.M music video. Then he decided to make a good cooking show, became an expert in culinary arts, and now has multiple shows on Food Network. Apparently he also lives in Marietta, Georgia. Here he is in a Georgia Magazine article, which says that he actually delivered pizzas while at UGA. Oh yeah, and he also won a prestigious Peabody Award. This is a salute to Alton Brown, a Famous Dawg who is representing UGA well.
Here's a short clip of his show Good Eats.
And the one below is his appearance on Letterman.
