Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jane & Michael Stern, the celebrated authors of Roadfood, have packed up their bags and hit the highways once again in search of the tastiest dishes and most fascinating chefs. The result is an amazing journey across America's heartland, with stops along the way for a few down-home meals and delightful desserts at the coziest, friendliest, and busiest diners and roadside cafes, including Snappy Lunch (Mount Airy, NC), Bon Ton Mini Mart (Henderson, KY), Katz's (New York City) and Ma Groover's Pig and Plate (Valdosta, GA).

Complete with incredible recipes like Whoopie Pie Cake, Emmy's Big Buns, Fried Green Tomatoes, Snoot Sauce (i.e. barbecue sauce), and Dagwoodburgers, fascinating chef profiles, and charming photographs, Blue Plate Specials and Blue Ribbon Chefs is the perfect addition to Jane and Michael Stern?s incredible Roadfood collection.
