The intoxicating smell of fried chicken could be detected from the moment our car tires ran over that hose that rings a bell when you pull in to a gas station just about anywhere. Once fueled I walked into pay … but by that time I’d been seduced and needed to go at least see this chicken that has me in it’s beak. It was clearly crisp and light even viewed through the case of glass it is within. Warmers hot enough to singe you if you touch that glass keep the birds at serving temperature. There were biscuits, macaroni and cheese and … off in a cooler … some sweet, tangy cole slaw. This is what road food can be. I’m no snob but I’ve not been in a McDonald’s like place since high school. That’s a lot of gas stations ago.
Now it’s time to hit the ‘Listen on WLRN’ button at the top to hear the remainder of my show. ‘A Word On Food’ airs on WLRN every Saturday around 8:30 a.m. at 91.3 and also 91.5 on the radio. I want to thank so many of you who tell me in person how much you are enjoying the show!
