If you like “Good Eats”

-- as in, the Food Network show -- mark your calendar for January 31.

Alton Brown, the James Beard Award-winning host of that brainy (and funny) cooking show, is bringing his

“Edible Inevitable”

tour to The Midland by AMC in early 2014. Brown has been to Kansas City for book talks before, but this is the first time he’s bringing a full-on stage show, complete with stand-up comedy, live music and interactive cooking demonstrations.

“Be prepared,” reads

the event listing on The Midland’s website

. “Ponchos will be involved.”

Tickets range in price from $32.50-$57.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, August 2.

Brown -- who has also appeared on “Food Network Star” and “Iron Chef America” -- is known for his nearly scientific approach to cooking. Here are five of his recipes that made it into my regular rotation.

1. I’ve made Brown’s

Garden Vegetable Soup

almost every week for the past four years. It’s that good.

2. This super-decadent

Vanilla Ice Cream

tastes like heaven in a root beer float.

3. My mom after trying Brown’s

Once and Future beans recipe

: “I didn’t know baked beans could taste this good.”

4. With 4,000+ five-star ratings, Brown’s recipe for

brined and roasted turkey is a fan favorite on foodnetwork.com.

5. This easy recipe for

Banana Ice Cream

is great with melted peanut butter, a drizzle of chocolate syrup, or both.
