Alton Brown jumps off the asphalt and into the water in new series
Over the last two years Food Network's Alton Brown has taken to America's roads less traveled in the Feasting on Asphalt series in order to find the little known jewels that were left behind as the Interstates began to rule the country. Along the way, Alton and his crew dined on alligator, various pieces of pig that are not normally consumed by the general public, sweet bread sandwiches, and lots and lots of doughnuts. Now, filled with fried dough and cow brains, Alton has decided to get off of his motorcycle and see what other delicacies are out there in warm waters of the Caribbean.
The new show will be called Feasting on Waves and will premiere September 7th on, where else, Food Network. In this new series Alton and his band of merry (and hungry) men will go on a search for the culinary roots of many of America's favorite foods. Starting in St. Kitts, Brown will take the journey Christopher Columbus did on his second trip to America -- heading north and west from the Leeward Islands to the British Virgin Islands. In the spirit of Feasting on Asphalt, Waves will focus on the most authentic and traditional foods of the region as well as look at the unique stands and restaurants that maintain a dedicated and local following.
While I'll watch Feasting on Waves, I sort of wish that Alton kept on the roads of America. I would have been particularly interested in seeing him take a ride up the local roads of the East Coast. But, maybe that's for the next year. In the meantime, if you are looking for some video clips of the series you can go to the show's web site.
