What I like about this person:

Alton never claims to be a professional chef. I like that he breaks cooking down scientifically (I spent a lot of after school time in my mom’s science lab) and never makes you feel like you wouldn’t be able to do what he’s doing in your own kitchen. His shows are quirky, fun to watch, and I always learn something from them.
