Who are you???

Cat pee. Our cat was accidentally locked in the basement, there was a low carton of books in the corner containing the Sterns’ "American Gourmet" on top, and ut-oh. So out went the book (but not the cat) and about a year later, I was trying to find something from AG, Yahooed it, and this site was one of the ones where it was mentioned.
I have been a fan of the Sterns’ books and had just about every book they wrote except for Roadfood.
Some folks are just passing through. Hasta La Vista[8D]
I heard about it on the radio. People were talking about interesting web sites on an early morning radio show.
Funny, I turned right at Greenland.
Turned left at Greenland.
Loved the Sterns’ columns in Epicurious.com; Gourmet mag is lucky to have them…so that led me here.
My friend at work told me about it a couple of years ago and I was hooked.
I found the Roadfood book at Barnes & Noble 1st and after that I went to the site.
Years ago, (maybe 1990?) I took a Roadfood library book on vacation, and when I got a computer, I looked to see if there was a website. Thankfully, there was! 🙂
I was looking for places to eat on a trip to Knoxville, TN. I hate chains, and love planning cool and different places to eat, focusing on local specialties. When Googling Knoxville dining, I found a link to a forum comparing Knoxville and Chattanooga. I was surprised I hadn’t found Roadfood earlier!! [:)]
I was going to Delaware, N.J. to meet someone. He said that while I was down there, he would take me to Hot Dog Johnny’s. I went to see if they had a web site, and sure enough, they did. It was there that I found a link to this site. Immediately, I was hooked, and I have been here since. I have been here for a little over a month and posting every day as there is always some topic that trips my trigger…
Like many folks, I too have some of the Stern’s books, starting with The Encyclopedia Of Bad Taste, along with Square Meals and also Real American Food. I love to cook in a retro manner with the ideal of "What is old is new".
Since joining I did go to their recent book signing in Ridgefield for Two For The Road and I am watching my mailbox for the newest edition of Roadfood.
Does anyone have a recommendation for any of their other books that they have enjoyed?
I have been reading Jane and Michaels roadfood articles in Gourmet magazine,thoroughly enjoying their experiences.When I was setting up my homepage on Yahoo, they had all sorts of sights that could be included…Roadfood was one of them and I am so pleased with the subjects, friendliness of my fellow roadfooders,and all the helpful(or not so helpful![:D])ideas.
I found it on Google,after doing a search on Diners,,I think its a amazing website,not only for the obvious hard work in the creation & maintaining of it,but the idea`s & recommendations of all the different members,in the different sections..That is what keeps my wife & I coming back almost every day…….
