Eating Across America is the perfect book for the travel foodie in all of us.
Eating Across America is a taste bud party of the countrys best food trucks, street foods and cheap eats. Sometimes messy, but always made with love, eating out at local trucks and hole in the walls has become a movement. Daymon Patterson, better known as Daymn Drops on YouTube and as the food correspondent on the award-winning Rachel Ray Show, details the definitive road map to truly tasting Americana. Daymon initially gained popularity on YouTube for his video review of a Five Guys takeout meal, which spawned into a viral sensation. Since then, Patterson's taste for quick and delicious meals has continued to grow, resulting in the mega successful digital series: pickup truck food reviews. Prior to joining Rachel Ray, he hosted Best Daym Fast Takeout, on the Travel Channel, detailing the best spots for quick bite. With recent works featured on The Jimmy Fallon show, Daymon’s culinary journey continues to grow.
"Having become friends with Daym Drops -- after he hilariously, and quite candidly, reviewed my families Wahlburgers restaurant -- I quickly realized that behind the outrageous comedy of his uniquely outrageous internet food reviews, is an incredibly unique man. A man with a giant heart, matched only by his giant frame and equally giant appetite. But, whether you know him personally or not, one thing is clear to anyone whose laughed their asses off to his culinary critiques - Daym Drops knows food! As a food critic, and as a friend, I give him five stars -- and you better believe the screen is shaking too, foodie fam!"
