Alton became really passionate two distinct times: a) when he was speaking of endorsements and
how Good Eats will never be 'bought' and b) when talking about other chefs writing books (the Pablo Picasso example). I felt these to be two
personal directives that Alton uses for creating Good Eats. The first represents honesty, the second
integrity. These appear to drive the ethics of the show. He's on a crusade for all to enjoy good eats.
I really felt awful during my two gaffes. Ugh. Here I am, the self proclaimed #1 Good Eats Aficionado and I make two
trivia blunders. I'll chalk it up to nerves ... yeah, that's the ticket.
If I could go on a crusade for Alton, it would be this: make it so that Food Network would beg Alton to make his shows
one hour long. Alton dispelled any doubt I'd had about this by saying 1) he could do it easily and 2) would wish that it were so.
The best episode, hands down, was his one hour episode, Romancing The Bird. Whoever can make this happen or get the message to Food
Network, you'll have my complete and utter support.
