We’re exploring the great American road trip this week on The Feast. Learn how the call of the open road has inspired millions over the last century to see the country. We follow in the footsteps and exhaust fumes of American writer, John Steinbeck, along the road of two of his most famous books: The Grapes of Wrath and Travels with Charley. Armed with our own trusty canine companion, we head out on the open road to learn what kind of culinary offerings we can find at your typical highway stop. We travel from Ontario to Arizona, taking in some of the oldest and most iconic roadside food the US has to offer. Join us on the road trip of a literary lifetime.
