Where should chef Alton Brown eat while in Kentucky?
Celebrity chef Alton Brown will visit Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond this fall, and he's asking locals for a little help before he arrives.
Brown is encouraging locals in each of the cities on the last leg of his Eat Your Science Tour to offer "gustatory guidance" ahead of his visit. Locals can submit recommendations for coffee, breakfast, late-night snacks and anything else they think Brown should eat while he's in the Lexington-Richmond region.
Suggestions can be submitted to Brown's website or by using #ABRoadEatsRKY on Facebook and Twitter.
Brown said he will tabulate the votes each day and make his picks from the suggestions.
"Everyone loves telling out-of-towners where to eat," Brown said. "Typically, we choose one coffee joint, one breakfast (or doughnut) stop and a lunch stop. Then, after the show, we'll hit a late-night place."
Eat Your Science will be at the EKU Center for the Arts at 7 p.m. on November 16.
Admission is between $35 and $125.
The author of "I’m Just Here for the Food" and the host of "Good Eats" will display his science-based cooking skills combined with elements of audience participation during his Richmond show.
Brown—a Marietta, Georgia, resident—is known for "Good Eats," which ran for 14 seasons on Food Network and Cooking Channel. The show won a Peabody Award in 2007, and in 2011, Brown was awarded the James Beard Foundation Award for Best TV Food Personality. His Mr. Wizard meets Julia Child style has appealed to audiences worldwide.
