Any one ever watch the show called Good Eats? It's on the food network channel on wednesdays and thursday nights. The guy that hosts the show, Alton Brown, is absolutely hilarious. Plus, he gives a lot of insight into why things work the way they do, like going into the chemistry of cooking. He gets technical about things at times but then does some bizarre translation that's kind of like an acid flashback. I've also tried one of his recipes and it worked out great.
