    This is Tucson: Meet the chef who’s eating her way across the US by train

    Via This is Tucson

    Madi Butler has the best summer internship: She’s visiting 22 different cities across the United States and blogging about their culinary scenes. The 27-year-old chef from Kentucky is participating in a project called “Summer by Rail,” sponsored by the Washington D.C. nonprofit Rail Passengers Association.

    Starting in Portland, Maine, Madi is taking trains down the coast hitting New York City, and then through the South down to New Orleans. She weaved her way back up to Chicago and then turned her eyes toward the Southwest.

    She hits Tucson Aug. 12, and plans to learn about our food truck scene, eat at Maynards Market and go on a taco tour. At 3:15 p.m. Aug. 13, she’ll also host a public meet-and-greet at the Southern Arizona Transportation Museum, 414 N. Toole. After Tucson, she’s finishing off her trip in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
