Celebrity chef Alton Brown is a man of passion – a quick glance at his TV shows would tell you that. And perhaps his greatest passion is for the woman he would eventually ask to marry him. In September 2018 Brown spilled all the details to the magazine Architectural Digest, explaining the circumstances under which the pair met.
Brown has had an intriguing career in entertainment. He actually majored in film at college, and at first he struck out as a cinematographer. R.E.M.’s promo video for “The One I Love” is partly his work, for example. But his true calling was that of celebrity chef. His show Good Eats debuted in 1998, and by the following year it was being shown on the Food Network.
At that time, Brown’s wife was a woman called DeAnna, who was one of Good Eats’ producers. They had a daughter together in 1999, but the relationship didn’t last. The couple eventually divorced in 2015, although Brown – who values his privacy – didn’t make any public statements about their separation.
