Food TV Celeb Alton Brown & PopSci on Tour

Food Network Superstar and TASTE HALL OF FAME‘s Alton Brown has a new tour, and part of it is based on food and science.

Alton Brown’s first food hack (he prefers the term “hacking” over “inventing”) took place during season one of his Food Network show Good Eats, when he made a fish smoker out of a cardboard box. Naturally, since then he can count the staff of Popular Science Magazine a part of his large and loyal fan base.

He invited PopSci to his secret workshop, where they made carbonated chocolate ice cream in 10 seconds, used lights to cook a pizza in three minutes, and answered a few questions about his favorite hacks, affirming that everyone’s home has a lab (the kitchen!), and why it’s a good idea to take apart the lawnmower.

Mega Bake
If you’ve ever played with an EZ-Bake Oven, you’re familiar with the concept of cooking with the heat produced by a light. Alton’s Mega Bake takes the concept to a whole new level, using 54 one-thousand-watt lights to get the oven to over 600 degrees.

Brown used it on the Edible Inevitable tour to make pizzas in under three minutes, and showed us how he does it.
