AB is da man!! (almost god like status in my house!)

After you get past all the quirky stuff (but you have to listen to it because it's valuble info too) that guy can teach some SERIOUS cooking!

The only other person I think that can keep up with him is Christopher Kimball from CI.

They teach the WHY in cooking.

My Grandma taught me the if you know what each ingredient in a recipe does and WHY you need them.
You can MAKE and DEVELOPE reciepes, not just FOLLOW them!

That is exactly what AB teaches.

Way to go on the book signing!

Seersucker suits are for the true southern gentleman.

Cool pics, and glad you got your book signed.

I like AB, Char can take him or leave him (mostly leave him). But yes the "Matlock" suit look is very southernly gentlemanly like.

Great pictures Brett. I'm an AB fan also. I wish I would have known about the book signing. I would have tried to make it also.

Not a funky suite at all. That is a seersucker suit. A long time staple of the southern gentleman.

You're one lucky man!! Personally, I love his antics while he's giving his history/schooling leeson's. A nice change from someone simply saying "..and it's sooooo good!", lol.

We use a lot of ABs tricks and tips. My wife makes some of the best granola bars cuase of his shows, amongst other things.

I really liked the feasting on Asphalt show, he took a spill on his bike and hurt his shoulder pretty bad from what I read. Props to him.
