Alton Brown Announces a Fall 2016 Tour: 'This Time, It's Personal'
Alton Brown is hitting the road again.
Food Network’s resident science enthusiast will head off on tour for his new cookbook, EveryDayCook, starting this September. Brown announced the news on his Facebook page on Thursday with a short film of himself packing his sticker-covered suitcase.
“Hard to believe it’s been five years since my last book tour,” he says. “Probably should have pumped out two, maybe three, books since then. But, hey, I got busy and I think I needed a change of pace.”
The Cutthroat Kitchen host packs his usual supplies of sticky notes, markers, a hefty supply of coffee and bourbon, and of course, hand sanitizer. “Something’s never ever change,” he says. “One thing is different though — this time, it’s personal.”

The slogan also serves as the tagline for his book, which features 101 recipes Brown cooks and eats “on a day-to-day basis, from morning to late at night and everywhere in-between.” But fans can also be sure the book won’t skimp on his usual emphasis of science and humor.
Brown’s sometimes-friend-sometimes-foe, Anthony Bourdain, will also be traveling around the U.S. on his own tour, “The Hunger.” Bourdain’s second live tour will begin in conjunction with the release of his first cookbook in over a decade, Appetites.
