And, if that wasn't good enough news for you, we'll be getting another installment in the Feasting on series, and this time he's hitting the islands.
"We are thrilled to continue our long-standing relationship with Alton and look forward to creating compelling programs with him," said Johnson. "Good Eats launched in 1999, its popularity and that of Alton is a testament to the creativity and longevity of our talent and programming."
"Food Network is my home and I am staying home," said Brown. "I'm looking forward to producing more and varied shows with the network and am especially excited about Feasting on Waves, which will bring a whole new perspective to food."
Feasting on Waves, premiering summer 2008, will feature Alton Brown trading the road for the waves to explore the people, cultures and food of the Caribbean. He will uncover the real mom and pop restaurants and food stands, cook on the boat, dive, fish, whatever it takes to find interesting edibles outside of the resorts. From the deck of a boat, it's a modern day pirate's tale searching out history, cuisines and stories.My only concern: Will he be taking the motorcycle on the boat with him?
