How did Elizabeth Ingram and Alton Brown meet?

Alton Brown and Elizabeth Ingram met in 2016 when Ingram went to have her copy of Brown’s EveryDayCook signed by Brown at a book signing.

But it wasn't until Brown hired her to help him design the interior of his new apartment that the two got to know each other better.

Ingram apparently didn't know who he was, “She thought that I was the guy from Molton Brown soap." 

Brown was intrigued by her, "I slowly turned every meeting we had into a date.”

By the time the renovation was completed, the two lovebirds were engaged. 

Of his wife, Brown said, "Living with someone who’s a creative, changes things because it changes the nature of what you can share and what you can expect people to understand. Having somebody you can talk to, which I haven’t always had in my life, is a big deal.”
