If your family is anything like Alton Brown's, it's easy to understand how one might overdo it at the holidays. The trick is to stick with these low-alcohol beverages. The flavors will knock you out, but the proof won't.
Food can be fun! That's the message of Good Eats, where host Alton Brown explores the ways that food is prepared and the whys of food science. Along the way he and his cast of characters and experts slip in history, comedy, pop references, and (most of the time) a generous pinch of kosher salt. If you want to go beyond what to do into why you do it, then tune in to Good Eats on the Food Network!
