He’s on the road again. This time, Alton Brown and his motorcycle-mounted crew are off on a thousand-mile, south-to-north journey that follows America’s first “superhighway”—the Mississippi. Starting at the great river’s delta on the Gulf of Mexico and ending up near its headwaters in Minnesota, Alton and buddies travel the heartland’s byways to scout out the very best of roadside food—and to get to know the people who spend their lives preparing and serving it.
A companion to the six-part Food Network series airing in fall 2007, Feasting on Asphalt: The River Run is a travel diary, photo journal, and, of course, cookbook. Alton’s itinerary includes big-city eateries and small-town chat ’n’ chews, as well as markets, inns, ice cream parlors, museums, barbecue joints—and even an alligator farm.
Louisiana-style Grilled Alligator Tail (served simply, with lemon and butter) is one of the book’s forty original road-food recipes. Others include Pecan-Coconut Pie from an Arkansan roadside restaurant; BBQ Pork Ribs in Mississippi that Brown eats over pancakes; Vegetable Borscht from St. Paul’s Russian Tea House; and Fried Catfish from a riverside burg in Illinois. When it comes to America’s foodways and folkways, there’s no better tour guide than Alton Brown.
I love this cookbook, but, then again, I love all of Mr. Brown's cookbooks..!!
The book is very entertaining. I really enjoyed my trip up the Mississippi with the Brown Gang. Good reading and great reading. Thanks Food Network
A great commentary to go side by side with the DVD set; Alton provides recipes and commentaries from their stops along the way, and lots of great pictures and notes not in the video. Resources for specialty items are included. My only drawback is I wish the book were bound in a better manner as the edges may be prone to separating.
I got my book on the date promised, in great condition and I love it! I will definately order from Food Network again! Thank you so much...Kim
We love Alton Brown and have followed his shows for years. He is our favorite Food Network person. I purchased 2 of these books. One for a Birthday present for my brother who is the President of the American BMW motorcycle club. Alton & my brother are personality wise, very much alike; very intellectual. My brother loved the book and was very excited to learn more about Alton. We live in Idaho and my brother rides his motorcycle through the south and midwest to the east coast every year. He is looking forward to visiting the same places as Alton did. The other book I purchased for my husband because I knew he would be jealous of my brother owning this book. We just received them last week. My brothers' Birthday was Monday so I was happy to have the book to give it to him then. Thank you for this opportunity for my opinion.
