F&W asked chefs around the country how they would prepare for an apocalyptic situation, a la The Road. Some went for luxury goods—others focused on survival.

Gunshow chef Kevin Gillespie would pack a cast-iron pan (“because you can do nearly everything with that”), a pair of tongs, salt, a slab of cured pork (either fatback or bacon or both) and dried beans. “I grew up eating a ton of pinto beans and black-eyed peas,” he says. “A bag of beans will last forever. And they’re good for you. I love them: I can’t extoll my passion for beans enough, actually.”
