Biker Billy's Roadhouse Cookbook

( 1 )

Overview

When America’s first two- and four-wheeled contraptions carried their intrepid wayfarers into the great unknown more than a century ago, a new industry was born—the roadside eatery. Roadhouses, diners, burger joints, truck stops, and, yes, the drive-in have since become venerable descendants of the travelers’ inns that once dotted the wagon trail.

Overview

When America’s first two- and four-wheeled contraptions carried their intrepid wayfarers into the great unknown more than a century ago, a new industry was born—the roadside eatery. Roadhouses, diners, burger joints, truck stops, and, yes, the drive-in have since become venerable descendants of the travelers’ inns that once dotted the wagon trail. And if anyone knows the roadside eats of today, it is the hungry biker. Whether hankering a slice of fresh apple pie or chicken fried steak and all the fixins’, riders have always sought and found the best highway chow, from lowdown grub to haute cuisine. In Biker Billy’s Roadhouse Cookbook, America’s Biker Chef takes us on an unprecedented tour de force of roadhouse recipes, history, and memorabilia. Journey along with Biker Billy as he explores more than a dozen famous historic and scenic highways and byways—including Route 66, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Natchez Trace, and the San Juan Skyway—and the great eateries and recipes that line them. Discover topnotch but little-known eateries cherished by local riders. From blue-plate specials to grits, from key lime pie to a Colorado red chili fiery enough to carry you a thousand miles, Biker Billy dishes up more than 100 recipes to write home about. Seasoned road warriors, sofa adventurers, and food aficionados will find the full flavor and feel of America’s tastiest roadside cuisine in Biker Billy’s Roadhouse Cookbook. Garnished with history, tall tales, pictures, and maps, scrumptiously woven together as only Biker Billy can do. Praise for the author’s previous book, Biker Billy’s Hog Wild on a Harley Cookbook“Few symbols offer the macho rush of a big motorcycle, so these recipes collected from Harley enthusiasts threaten no male self-image. . . . Hufnagle has plenty of attractive recipes for all appetites to relish.”—Booklist

Meet the Author

A vegetarian Harley rider with a love of all things hot and spicky, Bill Hufnagle, aka Biker Billy (www.bikerbilly.com), is the host of his own cable cooking show, the author of three previous cookbooks, and quite possibly the only biker to ever have a chile pepper named after him by Burpee Seeds. He has appeared on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, National Public Radio, and many other national shows, and is a frequent guest at motorcycle rallies across the country, presenting his "fiery" cooking techniques. He is a columnist and gastronomic editor at CRUISING RIDER magazine, and his books are sold on numerous motorcycle oriented websites (as well as his own). He lives outside of Asheville, North Carolina.
