In February of 2012, Food Network mainstay and total nerd Alton Brown put his popular cooking program Good Eats into “cryogenic holding.” After seven years, a couple of tours, a new cookbook, and a few “reloaded” episodes on the Cooking Channel, Good Eats is finally coming back for a proper new season. Described by Brown as a show inspired by equal parts Julia Child, Mr. Wizard, and Monty Python, Good Eats is more than just another Food Network show where some smiling idiot cooks lasagna. Other than learning seriously solid recipes to add to your repertoire, there’s a healthy serving of food science, from Maillard reactions to the properties of yeast. “Are there visual models?” you’re probably asking. Of course, there are. There are also puppets, blowtorches, and enough turkey brine to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

Not much is known about the upcoming batch of episodes, but there will be shows covering topics such as sous vide, sourdough bread, steak tartare, icebox cakes, and even shakshuka. What is assured is that Good Eats will be as funny, informative, and entertaining as ever, delivered by the best cooking show host since Emeril Lagasse. 

Here’s everything you need to stream Good Eats: The Return online.

Good Eats Reviews

What the critics are saying

Brown and his team have perfected his ability to tell a comprehensive food story without once losing the audience’s attention along the way.” –Nikita Richardson, Grub Street
  • “STREAM IT. Alton Brown hasn’t missed a step with Good Eats: The Return. In fact, watching it will feel like the show never left the air, which is always a good thing.” –Joel Keller, Decider

Good Eats on FuboTV

FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices.

The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel coming on board in 2020, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.
