Cybrarian. I love Alton Brown because he EXPLAINS everything behind what he does in his Good Eats show on the Food Network. It means I remember to do something because he tells me WHY. And Alton has unforgettable and humorous visuals. (Love the little Dutch girl/boy!) And I've picked up things like non-stick pans don't brown like regular heavy pans or *cast iron*. I find Bobby Flay and Emril ANNOYING and the former - yish...what an egotist!
