Publisher Comments:

Heand#8217;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 Americaand#8217;s first and#147;superhighwayand#8221;and#151;the Mississippi. Starting at the great riverand#8217;s delta on the Gulf of Mexico and ending up near its headwaters in Minnesota, Alton and buddies travel the heartlandand#8217;s byways to scout out the very best of roadside foodand#151;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. Altonand#8217;s itinerary includes big-city eateries and small-town chat and#8217;nand#8217; chews, as well as markets, inns, ice cream parlors, museums, barbecue jointsand#151;and even an alligator farm.

Louisiana-style Grilled Alligator Tail (served simply, with lemon and butter) is one of the bookand#8217;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. Pauland#8217;s Russian Tea House; and Fried Catfish from a riverside burg in Illinois. When it comes to Americaand#8217;s foodways and folkways, thereand#8217;s no better tour guide than Alton Brown.
