Feasting on Asphalt: The River Run

Feasting on Asphalt: The River Run - Alton Brown, Jean-Claude Dhien This book will make you want to go out on a road trip of your own. That is certainly the effect it had on me as I finished it. If you saw the show on the Food Network, then you already know what this book is about. Even if you did see the show, I recommend the book. The photos are very nice, and the prose is pretty engaging. The book also features appendices with a full list of all the locations visited (along with a few extras) and a small list of sources for the ingredients in the recipes featured in the book. If you did not see the show, this book might make you want to watch it when they run it again (or get it on DVD maybe?). Alton Brown reminds us that when it comes to travel, the good stuff is on the byways and side roads, not on the interstate. My dream now is to someday take some time to do the river run as well. I borrowed it via Interlibrary Loan, but I would definitely think about buying it.
