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.
