Tesky Britt and Acinapura Hit the Road.

Washington, DC (July 15, 2013) – Road trips are an American pastime in the summer – and just like the car needs fuel, so do hungry travelers! A few chefs notorious for their road trips are dishing on the time-tested snacks they pack and the guilty pleasures they stop for along the way. From salty-sweet to savory, healthy to gluttonous, these Washington, DC chefs run the gamut for highway munchies.

Anthony Acinapura, Chef de Cuisine, Brasserie Beck 
Road trip Destination: Bethany Beach, Delaware
Snacks to Pack: “Any Acinapura road trip requires lots of good food to keep my three daughters (4, 5 & 13) content. I’m Italian, so I like to keep it all in the family with a big Italian Charcuterie Sandwich:Prosciutto, Mortadella, Sopresata, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Red Wine Vinegar. Molto bene!”
Snacks to Buy: “Stops along the way are inevitable. At gas stations, I usually try to sell my daughters on the Bananas, but somehow we always walk out with our arms full of Barbecue Chips and Twizzlers.”

Matthew BrittExecutive Chef, Ceiba 
Road Trip Destination: Saint Michaels, Maryland
Snacks to Pack: “Not applicable! My wife and I try to plan our trips around great places to stop and eat – so we always leave hungry.”
Snacks to Buy: “We head to St. Michaels to make a long stop at The BBQ Joint in Easton, MD and chow down on some Brisket and Pulled Pork. We hit up Cantler’s on the return for Maryland Crabs and a cold beer. It’s all about mapping ahead!”

Brant TeskyExecutive Chef, Acadiana
Road Trip Destination: Douthat State Park in the Alleghany Mountains of Virginia
Snacks to Pack: “A Turkey Sandwich might sound ho-hum, but not when I make it with my Sun-dried Tomato Pesto! It’s quick to whip up—just a little Garlic, Basil, Parmesan, Pine Nuts and Sun-dried Tomatoes, blended together with Virgin Olive Oil.”
Snacks to Buy: “Corn Nuts are my go-to gas station purchase. I don’t consider it junk food since it only has three ingredients: Corn, Salt and Oil. I’m also a Beef Jerky fan.”
