The LA Fast Food Tour Makes the Big Time

One Saturday morning a couple of years ago, I decided to write a few blog posts about some of my favorite LA fast food eateries. The posts spotlighted Pink's, Tommy's, Fatburger, and Philippe's.  You can read them by clicking here.

About a year ago, I got a note from someone who was putting together a foodie book and she asked permission to include my silly little posts in the book. Of course I gave permission and then really didn't think anything more about it ...

... until I got a note that the book had been published!  By National Geographic, no less!

The LA Fast Food Tour appears on page 135 and if you look *really* hard at the list of authors in the back of the book, you'll find my name there.  (It might take a magnifying glass.)

I don't have a vested interest in the sale of this book, so I feel free to recommend it very highly.  It's a beautiful book (you know the photography is breathtaking -- it's published by National Geographic).  It's entertaining and fun to learn about food in faraway places. You can click on the graphic above to order it from Amazon.
