Alton Brown: Science, Food, and Why Kids Dig "Good Eats"

As host of Food Network's Good Eats, Alton Brown doesn't just show viewers how to cook their meals, he shows them how their meals cook. From boiling water to baking a cake, Brown explains the combinations and reactions that transform separate ingredients into a meal. In so doing he makes science accessible to today's students by making it relevant.

In this interview [MP3, 13MB] with Cable in the Classroom Magazine’s Lauren Capolupo, Brown discusses why science is such a major part of his program and how teachers can and should apply his techniques in the classroom.
