We can never figure out what Alton Brown enjoys more: making great food or explaining the science behind why the food is great. Regardless, his infectious love of all things edible has made him one of the most recognizable faces on the food hosting scene. What set him apart from his peers as host of the American version of Iron Chef was his almost uncanny ability to instantly predict the competitor’s full menu based on seeing them reach for their first ingredient. Never stop being Alton, Alton.
