About Food Adventures with Superfry & The Big Ragu

We posted some pictures from the trip & other eating stops over the next 2 years.  After generating some Facebook buzz,  DaytonMostMetro.com  asked us to be their featured food bloggers.    
We were honored, & still have a great partnership with them today, having posted over 500 feature articles since 2011.   We are active daily on FacebookInstagram and Twitter 

The Big Ragu.
Let us set the record straight 
-We have an unmatched passion for food.  
-We are not journalists, This is not our job, this is our hobby, no agenda, no association 
-We are not food critics, we just love to eat.
 -We share our favorite local and not so local foodstuffs - no rules, no whining. 
-All original photos, original food events, festivals, recipes, classes & so much more !
-We set the trends other blogs imitate.

Together, your humble Food Adventurers will seek out locally owned restaurants, unique places off the beaten path, & even give our slant on some familiar favorites. 
Whenever we visit a place, we call it a “Food Adventure.” 

You can expect pictures of each "Food Adventure" we embark on. 

You can expect us hugging waiters, posting nostalgia, emotionally eating our way through life. 

So get ready fans, you are about to go on an adventure…..


We are much more than 1 person with a free Instagram or free Facebook account calling themselves "we." We are the original Dayton Foodies. 

We promise to deliver our unique take on places to eat in the Dayton area and beyond. Our goal is to be informative and entertaining. 

Whether casual food, formal dining, street food, or festivals, we will leave no plate unturned.  Don't be shamed by the people who say they eat local, then go to Chipotle 3 times a week - we eat it all NO RULES..

Food.. Who better to tackle this topic than three Dayton residents who are fanatical “foodies.”

It all started with a road trip to Chinatown in Chicago in April 2008.  
It is there that we experienced our first

A lifelong resident of Dayton, his early food influence started in the kitchen by his mom.  Both of his grandmother's taught him Italian cooking and German/Scottish cooking respectively.  He also learned a lot about grilling from his dad and his grandfathers at family functions and get togethers.  He inherited his family's love of food and restaurants. Ragu's love of food is only matched by his love of sports, travel, karaoke, and the need to just be held.  His favorite foods are Seafood, Italian, Chinese and Japanese.  He is a sucker for the nostalgic restaurants of Dayton.  

Other hobbies include, occasionally overeating & a slight attraction to fried foods.  With the Food Adventures Crew, he has written over 500 weekly feature articles for DaytonMostMetro.com.  He has appeared on Living DaytonTV as part of Food Adventures and has helped put together Dayton's Garlic Fest and Rock N Green Tomato Festivals respectively.  From judging green tomato pies, to guest bartending, or charity appearances alongside Jax and Jessie, he loves it all.  He has helped host cooking classes and will continue to push the envelope with Food Adventure events.  He brings incredible food photos to our social media, in the interest of bringing you unparalled information, humor and fun.
