Greater Midwest Road Food
For Memorial Day weekend coming up, please allow me to offer you a visual and audio movable feast from the recent Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance symposium "Road Food: Exploring the Midwest One Bite at a Time."
WBEZ's Chicago Amplified recorded the entire three day program and you can download each speaker's story now, most notably keynote speaker Michael Stern's "Will Success Spoil Regional Food?"
If you get a chance to do a roadtrip, some of these dishes may inspire your journey and destination. Please note that some of the restaurants have closed, but their recipes live on in memories, recipe books, and hopefully our gathering plates.
