Every week, Jill Cordes and Marc Silverstein, hosts of Food Network's popular show The Best Of, take viewers to unexpected places in search of the best of food, drink, and merriment. From the smallest prairie towns to the biggest cities, from five-star dining rooms to greasy spoons, from Maine to Maui, these reporters traverse the country, cameras at the ready and forks in hand.

Part recipe collection, part scavenger hunt, part confessional, Food Network Best of The Best Ofgives readers a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road to discover why a drugstore in South Dakota sells 3,000 donuts a day or where to find the finest matzoball soup in Iowa. Whether it's a Cordon Bleu-trained chef amidst the slot machines of Las Vegas or the ranch wife who opened an eatery in a one-horse town, the book, like the show, showcases the breadth and variety of the food experience in America.
