Hidden Southern restaurants and their best recipes await in this, the third helping of Off the Eaten Path. Morgan Murphy takes his hungry readers back on the road with an unforgettable trip across the South, covering 15,000 miles, 60+ all-new restaurants, 150 recipes, in 18 states. From the best fried chicken in Kentucky to a dusty steakhouse in Buffalo Gap, Texas, On the Road Again is a road trip you can take from your own kitchen.
- Morgan showcases all new restaurants in each state that are worth driving out of your way to try. These are finds you can't just do a web search to discover.
- Reading the book is like being in the '56 Cadillac with Morgan as he introduces readers to each restaurant owner, their prized recipes, and local lore.
- Morgan recommends his favorite shopping, hotels, artisan products, and even a sound track for each state.
This book was researched the old-fashioned way-by pounding the pavement. And after Morgan pried the recipes loose from his favorite restaurants, the Southern Living test kitchen tested and re-tested the recipes to make sure they'll be no-fail favorites at home.
