    Default Any fans of TV chef Alton Brown/Good Eats?

    AB is easily my favorite TV cook, and he tweeted this pic today. I knew there was a reason I liked him!

    I remember on one of his 'road trip' episodes he used a Spyderco Endura to cut something edible

    EDIT: I think it may have been "Feasting on Asphalt".

    Default A amazing knowledge of science

    I agree. He is a great chef, and has an amazing knowledge of the science behind the cooking process! And, as mentioned, is VERY funny & entertaining! (Creative in many ways...)

    Love AB! I especially enjoy when he mimics the Chairman on Iron Chef America.

    I've learned a lot from watching him.

    If anybody watches Bourdain's show, No Reservations, he trains at the Echo Valley Training Center before his trip to Kurdistan. Echo Valley Training Center is where our Winchester, VA classes are held and are owned and operated by the good guys at Stonewall Arms.

    Granted, Bourdain is a liberal. But he knows food and has had Ted Nugent on his show (on very good terms) more than once. He also portrays the troops every time in a positive note.

    He apparently was a cook in my home town of Provincetown before he got famous.
