Specialized cooking gear, ponchos, and pastries of unusual size—looks like Alton Brown is coming to town. The quirky intellectual who rules a bevy of Food Network shows like Good Eats, Iron Chef America, The Next Food Network Star and Cutthroat Kitchen, embarks on a national tour, mixing his natural showmanship with big dollops of comedy, culinary experimentation and audience participation—there's even rumored to be some live singing (he's a man of many hats, as demonstrated in the song "Airport Shrimp Blues"). As his first live tour, Edible Inevitable skips the training gloves and turns the flame on high—those in the first few rows are armed with plastic ponchos, because things get incredibly messy, Gallagher-style. It's truly a feast for the senses.
