An Evening with Alton Brown: The Science of Cooking

NC Science Festival

Signature Event of the NC Science Festival

The North Carolina Science Festival brings Alton Brown, host of the Food Network’s Good Eats, to DPAC with a show that celebrates the science of food.

“An Evening with Alton Brown: The Science of Cooking” will feature Brown’s unique brand of kitchen science with comedy, culture and cooking. A question-and-answer session with audience members will follow Brown’s performance.

The 2013 NC Science Festival's theme is ‘Life is your lab,’ a perfect fit with Alton. Whether he’s inventing his own kitchen gear or showing you how changes in temperature affect food on a molecular level, Alton Brown is making that connection between science and everyday life.

Brown demonstrated kitchen science on Good Eats for 15 seasons with the Food Network. He also appeared on Iron Chef America and hosted The Next Iron Chef for four seasons. He received both a Peabody Award and a James Beard Award for his work in television.
