Burping and farting sock puppets, a kitchen set equipped with white lab coats and Chico’s food fanatics filled Laxson auditorium Sunday night for Alton Brown’s Edible Inevitable Tour.

Brown, Food Networks host on “Good Eats” is a chef and a science whiz who encompass learning with cooking. Along with getting down in the kitchen, he also writes and performed quirky food songs such as “Airport Shrimp Cocktail,” “Pork Chop Blues,” and “The Meat Goes On.”

The show began with a performance of “Airport Shrimp Cocktail” and Brown presented the Jet Cream, a device that creates chocolate ice cream in 10 seconds using two fire extinguishers and water gallon jugs.

“This show is filled with things they won’t let me do on television. I wanna do stuff that’s cray cray,” said Brown.

After producing chocolate ice cream in a waffle cone with rainbow sprinkles, Brown, with audience participation presented the Mega Bake. This 54,000-watt oven can reach up to 650 degrees Fahrenheit.

With the turn of the wheel, he created two homemade pepperoni, cheese, pineapple and kale pizzas.

After chomping down on the scorched kale pizza, Brown presented “Pork Chop Blues” and gave food for thought.

“Next time you buy food you’re voting for your choice,” said Brown.

Chicoan Tania Leeder and Oroville resident Jessica Jenkins are huge fans of Brown and were more than impressed with the Good Eats host.

“The music was really goofy and fun,” said Leeder.

“It was much better than I thought it was, especially the music. It was hilarious. It was a cooking, music and comedy show all rolled into one and if anyone could pull it off it would be Alton Brown,” said Jenkins.
