Mighty Mississippi

Witty, iconoclastic foodie Alton Brown hits the road, following the route of the mighty Mississippi River in Feasting on Asphalt: The River Run. If you have a secret Southern soul that yearns for gumbo, "paaaah" (aka pie) and pork, you'll relish this companion book to Brown's Food Network series chronicling a gustatory journey from the Mississippi Delta north to the river's Minnesota headwaters (pull-out route map included). Brown and his film crew head out on motorcycles searching for the best "road food" and the stories behind the people who prepare it. His handwritten diary, plus six funny, informative and tender-hearted essays (I loved "Fry Me a River") are enlivened by quirky graphics and photography. The ensemble frames an endearing snapshot of a fast-disappearing rural America, including actual roadie recipes.
