900 Restaurants, 1000s of Great Meals
Tuesday, March 4, 2014, is publication date for the 9th edition of Roadfood: (Order it now, via Roadfood.com)
From the introduction: "It was almost 40 years ago that we coined the term Roadfood to describe local eats around America. At the time, we felt like crusaders, trying to get people to pay attention to what we considered a neglected national treasure: regional food."
Regional American food is no longer obscure; in fact, it has become a national passion; and Roadfood – the book – is what started it all.
The new edition lists 900 destination restaurants around America, including 200 that were not in the previous edition, as well as a "ROADFOOD HONOR ROLL" of the 100 most essential Roadfood restaurants around the country. How many have you enjoyed? Roadfood is available in an electronic Kindle edition, but we think there is something special about the big book itself – especially after it gets dripped-on, dog-eared, and stained from spills of gravy, melting ice cream, and BBQ sauce!
Please order your copy now, by going to this page; and we'll be happy to sign it when we see you at Foodfest in New Orleans (March 28-30), on the next Roadfood tour, or whenever and wherever we meet along the road to great American eats. (Consider also getting cooks, waiters, and staff at each Roadfood restaurant to sign it as you travel.)
