A companion to the Food Network series, Feasting on Asphalt is a travel diary, photo journal, and, of course, cookbook. Alton's itinerary along the Mississippi includes big-city eateries and small-town diners, as well as markets, inns, ice cream parlors, museums, barbecue joints--and even an alligator farm.
