So it's no surprise that he killed it in his recent AMA on Eater. These are the 10 best moments that will make you love him even more.
On shitfoodblogger’s offer to hang out, give each other back rubs and make queso fundido: "I would have to first sample the queso…I’m picky."
And that, my friend, is why Alton is the very best.
On his alcoholic beverage of choice: "I have to have just one? That's so unfair. But okay…bourbon."
On getting children to try new foods: "Never ever ever ever ever let your kid eat from the children's menu at restaurants and never ever ever make your kid special food to allow them to avoid whatever the family is eating."
On MSG: "To tell you the truth, I don't have a problem with it. It's a tool that has it's [sic] place, but don't go overboard."
On his website project: "My goal is simple…get every American within the sound of my web voice to cook three meals a week. Is that too much to ask?"
On the possibility of a kids' version of Cutthroat Kitchen: "There is nothing I'd like more than to make children cry on Cutthroat Kitchen. And of course I'd only give them like $5 to start with (evil laughter)."
On whether he'd rather fight a hundred duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck: "I'll go with the horse-sized duck. They're typically unstable out of water."
On which trendy ingredient is ridiculously overused: "SRIRACHA!!!"
On the two things he must have daily: "Coffee. Sardines."
On how to start wearing bow ties: "...as far as wearing them, you just freakin' wear them. Collar type is important though as bows don't look good with spreads."
