Alton spoke at the historic Tennessee Theater at the beginning of the 2012 International Biscuit Festival. If you think listening to a Food Network star talk (not cook, not eat, just talk) for an evening sounds boring, think again. Mr. Brown was witty, funny, entertaining, and the perfect amount of Southern. I was thoroughly entertained and left wanting to divert my career into food writing (at least partially so that I could really be left on a first name version with Alton rather than just feeling like I know him).
The view from the first row of the balcony was fantastic, so I'm afraid that these video clips (taken on my phone) don't do it justice, but I wanted to share a few minutes from the night.
