The Alton Browncast [iTunes link] is a weekly podcast by the creator and star of the Good Eats cooking show. The podcast is a mixture of interviews, recipes, food news, food tips, and questions from listeners, occasionally about Doctor Who (he's a fan). There have been six episodes so far and the guests have been Sandy Waddell, Bobby Flay, Keith Schroeder, Alex Guarnaschelli, Hugh Acheson and Justin Warner.
After 249 episodes on a wide variety of ingredients and other cooking related topics, Alton Brown ended Good Eats last week (save for 3 unaired one hour specials). The show leaves behind many unaddressed recipes that were to be in "another show." [more inside]
Winter holiday traditions change with time and location, with their current forms retaining little of their old forms, wassailing (rhymes with fossil-ing) possibly more than most. The modern interpretation of wassailing has been simplified to singing carols, though it was born of much more diverse traditions, from a cheer of good health before battle to scaring evil spirits from apple orchards. From these origins come wassail the drink, and that's just one of the many foods of the winter season (Food Timeline prev., 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). A few more are covered below the break. [more inside]
