Doors Open at 6:30 PM (Seating is first come, first served)
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM: Author Talk and Audience Q&A
8:00 PM: Book Signing
Join Random House for a Big Ideas Night with renowned cook and TV personality, Alton Brown, on the eve of the publication of his first cookbook in over five years, EveryDayCook. During this special presentation, Alton will discuss why EveryDayCook is so personal, from the recipes he cooks for himself to the photographs found throughout (which were all taken on his iPhone). Alton’s singular journey as a cook, performer, and producer has given him a unique perspective to discuss today’s food culture and how food now plays such a crucial and influential role as a unifier in our digital world.
Random House’s Big Ideas Night series—held at the publisher’s flagship offices in Manhattan—is a forum for thought-provoking conversations between writers and editors on the topics of politics, world affairs, technology, fashion, philanthropy, and more. These focused dialogues offer exclusive access for guests to dive deeper into a recently released book with fellow readers, and to network and engage directly with the innovators behind it.
About Alton Brown
Alton Brown used to direct TV commercials and cook on the side. Then he got the crazy idea to go to culinary school and reinvent the food show. The result: Good Eats, which kept Brown gainfully employed for fifteen years and earned him a Peabody Award. Along the way he also hosted Iron Chef America and Feasting on Asphalt and wrote seven books in his spare time. In 2013 he launched a live culinary variety show called The Edible Inevitable tour, which played to sold out theaters across the United States. In the spring of 2016, Brown’s new live show, Eat Your Science, toured forty U.S. cities. Brown also hosts the insanely popular Cutthroat Kitchen on Food Network.
