On this episode of the RV Family Travel Atlas Podcast, we are checking off a bucket list item and interviewing Micheal Stern, co-author of Road Food: An Eater’s Guide to More than 1,000 of the Best Local Hot Spots and Hidden Gems Across America. The 10th edition of this classic book was just released, and we asked Michael to come on the show and talk about his forty years of traveling around the country and reporting on the best road food joints out there.
We have personally traveled with Road Food in each of our campers since day one, and it has led us to some of the best BBQ joints and lobster shacks in America. If you don’t have a copy yet, we don’t know what you are waiting for.
In Segment One, we chat with Michael Stern about the evolution of food writing over the last forty years. He takes us back to the beginning, when they struggled to get publishers to buy into the idea that readers would be interested in ‘regular’ food.
In Segment Two, we put Micheal Stern in the hot seat, and make him answer some tough questions about his favorite American food region, and some of his most memorable discoveries.
We wrap it up in Segment Three with our own personal list of 10 amazing Road Food joints where we have eaten over the course of our RV travels. Pairing a campground with great road food is just about the perfect match in our world. Listen to hear our top picks from the last 7 years.
You might think every meal has to be cooked over a campfire if you are a true RV enthusiast. But we know that finding a great road food joint turns an ordinary trip into an epic adventure. Take a listen to episode #135: Ready, Set, Road Food!
