Yet another US tour

Yes, I'm just about to head off to the USA again. I fly on Friday and almost immediately the fun begins.

Well, really the fun will start before I even get out of Schiphol. I always like to have a drink or two before being strip searched.

This is my schedule - a whirlwind tour of Houston, Birmingham, Atlanta and Asheville. Come along, chat, feed me beer, buy my book.

Make sure you eat a full southern breakfast complete with grits, biscuits and gravy Ron!

I just got the book but won't be anywhere near those signings. I'll definitely be working on some of those recipes, and the 1936 Barclay Perkins KK looks just lovely.

I don't suppose you have a place on this site, or somewhere else, where people are commenting on recipes and you're providing feedback? Seems like it would be a good way of closing the loop in a modern sort of way.

Ack, I can't believe that you're going to be in Birmingham and I'm going to be out of town! Cahaba is walking distance of my home (and a fine brewery it is). Oh well, I'll be sending books over to be signed. Hope your trip is great and that you get your biscuits and gravy.
