When Jane and I wrote the first Roadfood, sleeves-up regional eats were little appreciated by most food writers. Now you can't avoid the foodie obsession with diners, dives, food trucks, and barbecue in print, on TV, and all over the internet. Is this a good thing? I'll be offering some thoughts about this question, as well as comments and reminiscences about Midwest Roadfood, at the Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance symposium, "Road Food: Exploring the Midwest One Bite at a Time," April 27-29 at Kendall College School of Culinary Arts in Chicago. Please, come! The program includes all sorts of interesting presentations, not to mention plenty of good food. (Pictured above: Barb Schaller's award-winning preserves at the Minnesota Fair.)
