Alton Brown Inks Book Deal with Abrams

By Maryann Yin Comment

Abrams’ Stewart, Tabori & Chang imprint has acquired the final volume of celebrity chef Alton Brown’s Good Eats cookbook trilogy.

William Morris Endeavor Entertainment agent Eric Lupfer negotiated the deal with publisher Leslie Stoker.

In the release, Stoker had this comment: “A new Alton Brown book is always a publishing event in the cookbook world, and the release of Good Eats 3 should generate the same kind of enthusiasm and strong sales as his previous books. This final book in the Good Eats series will be a must-have for fans of Brown’s original, highly entertaining cooking show.”

When Brown released his second volume, Good Eats: The Middle Years (pictured, click to enlarge) last fall, he promoted at an event with author/actor John Hodgman. The two shared whiskey and  fielded questions from the audience.
