  1. This guy is genuine! Talented passionate chef, pro cinematographer, author, musician, pilot an most important a BMW motorcyclist. I have enjoyed watching his shows for years which inspired many of my culinary students. His books are also very good reads. Alton pretty much built the Food network into what it is today as far writing, personality in front and behind the camera. I’ve also heard he is a real down to earth guy. Would love to have him come visit my culinary program and students someday.
