My final fab photo opp in Atlanta was with Mr. "Good Eats" himself – Alton Brown! Let me tell you, I wasn't the only one clamoring to talk turkey with the Food Network star… the demonstration kitchen was filled to practically bursting. But determined gal that I am, I did find a quite moment to chat with the chef before he went out to dazzle the awaiting masses. I was particularly excited to meet him because my literary agent was his agent before she moved to her new post at Foundry Media. It was so fun to meet Alton – he is just as quirky and charming in real life as he is on tv. He definitely didn't disappoint in the kitchen!
An extra fun bonus was that he gave away 100 signed copies of his new book Good Eats: The Early Years. Sadly, I arrived too late to receive a copy but did have a chance to get a quick pic with the food guru – awesome!
