Food News: Saveur's May Road Trip Issue
The May issue of Saveur can make you want to pack your bags with a tempting issue focused on road trips. As editor Adam Sachs writes, "Hitting the road to eat. Meals worth the drive."
A one-day road trip to Detroit sounds unexpectedly satisfying with local chefs adding to the city's recovery. The choucroute route in Alsace includes chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's recipe for the classic sauerkraut and pork dish. There are culinary pilgrimages to California's taco-lined Route 99 and feasts in Uruguay. And a food-driven travel guide to Abruzzo only needs your passport and appetite, as if that could be difficult. Plus there are recipes to make at home from this rustic region that is only an hour and a half from Rome.
The issue is filled with beautiful photography, typical of the folks at Saveur, and many pages to linger over.
No travel plans? What snapped my head around about this issue is the article called "Strawberry Rhubarb Revisited." Local berries and tangy local rhubarb are due soon in our farmers market as two of the first big flavors to arrive in early summer. Saveur has recipes for Strawberry Rhubarb Yogurt Pops, Cheesecake with Charred Rhubarb Compote and Sliced Strawberries, Strawberry Rhubarb Hand Pies, and Strawberry Rhubarb Pâte de Fruit that are dusted with Demerara sugar flavored with spiced liqueur and bitter orange peels. That's enough of a reason alone to stay home and cook.
