Michael Stern, together with his wife Jane, publishes Road Food; a coast to coast guide to 600 of the best barbeque joints, lobster shacks, ice cream parlors and highway diners in the country.
Jane and Michael have eaten at every single one of the 600 roadside joints in their book; from New Jersey to California and from Vermont to Texas. People Magazine calls their guide an invaluable "cross-country culinary guide that should be stashed in every food lover's glove compartment."
They have written more than thirty books about America and their Roadfood column for Gourmet Magazine has won three coveted James Beard awards. They also review books for The New York Times and they operate Roadfood.com an online interactive community of roadfood--food warriors.
