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. Here, Mike Brown, resourceful co-chef of Travail Kitchen & Amusements in Robbinsdale, Minnesota masterminds his emergency backpack.
"I’d pack dried pasta, hot dogs and I always like to have tortillas on hand. Anything you find, you just wrap it up on a tortilla," says Brown. He also can't live without Sriracha. Best thing about his pack? "If you run out of TP, a nice flour tortilla would do the job. Sriracha and tortillas would get me through World War III," he says.
