Review by Library Journal (2010-10-15)

Chef and all-around food guru Brown returns with his second Good Eats retrospective. Fans of his quirky television series will love this detailed, behind-the-scenes recap of each episode from seasons six through ten. Packed with food science tidbits, anecdotes, and easy recipes, this is more than the average cookbook. Almost all of the recipes deal with familiar foods and are best suited for novice to intermediate cooks. Expert foodies and those seeking a wider selection of intricate, vegetarian, or specialty dishes may want to look elsewhere. As a bonus, the book comes with a DVD of 15 short films of a few minutes or less, containing recipes and fun facts.

Verdict: This comprehensive and entertaining cookbook is highly recommended for public libraries of any size and is viable as a stand-alone or a complement to Brown's best-selling Good Eats: The Early Years.

Brown’s particular genius lies in teaching the chemistry of cooking with levity and exuberance. In episodes such as “Fit to Be Tied” (meat roulades), “Crustacean Nation” (crab), and “Ill-Gotten Grains” (wheat products), Brown explains everything from how to make the perfect omelet to how to stuff your own sausages.
