A 5-ingredient cornbread that is a local tradition in Scott, Arkansas

An ice cream sundae with a secret ingredient from Brevard, North Carolina

The Bat Outta Hell sandwich from Charleston, South Carolina that lives up to its name

These are just a few of the 120 recipes you'll find in the latest book from bestselling author and food critic Morgan Murphy, who knows that some of the best places to eat around the South are those hard-to-find places. That's why he traveled 15,000 miles and visited 60 cities on a culinary road trip to uncover the best-of-the-best.


Morgan was able to talk these restaurants into sharing their prized recipes. He teamed up with the Southern Living Test Kitchen to test them all. So now you can take your own road trip without leaving your kitchen in Off the Eaten Path––On the Road Again, where Morgan also recommends his favorite shopping, hotels, and artisan products.
