West Coast Road Eats

While attending community college and looking for a place to develop my writing skills, I worked as an editorial intern for Citysearch, an online resource for restaurant and retail reviews. During my six month tenure at Citysearch, I worked under a young woman by the name of Anna Ross. As it turned out, Anna had attended the same high school I did and had since received an English degree from the University of Southern California, before taking a job as the editor of Citysearch's Seattle office.

She was quick to point out grammatical mistakes, happy to help when I asked for it and encouraged me to pursue projects that I might have otherwise neglected. Anna has since left Citysearch and is now a content manager for Demand Media. She is also the author of West Coast Road Eats, "the definitive guide to the cuisine of the West Coast."

On a recent trip to Cambria, a sleepy town on the coast of California, myself, a co-worker and two Canadians, were struggling to find good food along the I-5 corridor. I sent Anna a text asking if there was anything good to eat between Redding and Sacramento. She promptly replied, suggesting that we stop at the Olive Pit for a Muffuletta. She also suggested I purchase a copy of her book ;)

Well, I kept my promise and picked up a copy. And for those of you travelling south, or north for that matter, I recommend you do the same. It's not just a travel guide, but the story of Anna's nine month mission to document the wide variety of food available along the western coast of the United States.
