When I made a list of interesting people I wanted to interview on camera for a series called Chewing the Fat, Alton Brown was at the top of the list. I have always found Alton to be interesting, provocative, smart, and funny, so we were thrilled when Alton agreed to do it. Who did we get to shoot, direct, and edit the Alton videos? None other than Hamburger America director and author George Motz.
With the holiday season upon us, we thought it would be righteous to have Alton weighing in on one of our all time favorite Serious Eats subjects, pie. Needless to say, he shares our reverence for a great piece of pie and the piemakers behind them.
