Supernatural is well-known for being a road-trip show. Brothers Sam and Dean Winchester drove from coast to coast, taking on all manner of supernatural creatures along the way… And also exploring the best of America’s side-of-the-road diners. On their many adventures, they were sometimes joined by Castiel, an angel of the Lord. Misha Collins, of course, played Castiel. Though Cas learned a lot about human ways on his travels, including the delicious draws of burgers and pie, Collins now takes the adventure to the next level. As host of PBS’ Roadfood, Misha Collins will discover America, one tasty dish at a time.
I was jealous of Sam and Dean always touring the country in their '67 Impala, so I'm doing my own American road trip show for @PBS. Wanna come along for the ride? https://t.co/LI67oaYDjZ@Roadfood123— 🦇 Misha Collins 🦇 (@mishacollins) November 8, 2021

Roadfood: Discovering America One Dish at a Time is a new PBS TV show that aims to re-discover America’s regional culture through its iconic dishes. Our host, Misha Collins, will hit the highways and byways of America, exploring a uniquely American dish in each episode. Meeting local cooks, pit-masters, bakers, cafe owners, and proprietors of local eating establishments, Misha will explore the roots of a dish through these modern culinary folk artisans.
On each of our 13 episodes, he will meet with locals to learn about their community, history, and values. Along the way, the viewer will experience Misha’s infectious curiosity and natural ability to connect with people from diverse backgrounds. He fosters fascinating conversations that build appreciation in each location. Finally he offers an invitation for the viewer to hit the road and connect as well. Tune-in for some unexpected adventures, colorful encounters, engaged conversations, and lots of great food.
We admit this does remind us a bit of Guy Fieri‘s Diners, Drive–Ins and Dives. But you know what they say, double the food porn, double the fun. We also like the focus on communities, history, and culture. Collins, of course, is known for being a lot of fun as well. And it certainly sounds like a ton of incredible food lies in store. The show will premiere “this fall,” we assume, sometime in November.
If you can’t wait for the show to air, you can discover some of Roadfood‘s favorite restaurants right away. Maybe there are even some near you. For that at-home chef, the show also offers recipes you can follow. We can’t wait to see Misha Collins take on hosting when Roadfood arrives, just in time for the holiday season.
