Feasting on Asphalt...
While I am not an Alton Brown
superfan or stalker, I do love me some Good Eats
. Saturday, Food Network had a GE marathon and a behind the scenes of the show followed by Feasting On Asphalt, a new mini-series featuring the greatest foody instructor on TV. He and his crew will be driving across country using back roads only and stopping at unknown places for "road food" when hungry.
The initial episode was great. They actually broke the rules at the first restaurant, because he wanted to show what he considered to be a true road food joint Jack's Cosmic Dogs
in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. During the premier they ate pickled pig's feet, some excellent looking biscuits, and went to South 21 Drive In
in Charlotte, North Carolina. I believe I'll be headed there on my next trip down.
This would be a truly awesome way to spend a month! Give it a look, August 5th, 12th and 19th at 9:00 pm.
