Food Critic. Author of Off the Eaten Path series by Southern Living. Don’t believe in gentlemen? Spend an hour with Morgan Murphy. The best-selling author and vintage car enthusiast wears impeccably tailored suits and polished shoes to dinner, habits picked up during his years at Oxford University and service to the U.S. Navy. He stands when a woman approaches. And when his blue eyes twinkle and his cheeks dimple, a hilarious tale is sure to follow. Murphy is the author of the original Off the Eaten Path cookbook and co-author of I Love You--Now Hush. His trademark wit has appeared in Vanity Fair, Forbes, Esquire, The New York Post, and Southern Living, where he served as travel editor, food critic, and national spokesman. Often called “America’s funniest food critic,” he has appeared on the TODAY show, Fox & Friends, CNN, Sirius/XM, and National Public Radio. There’s some iron behind his cigar smoke. Murphy serves as a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy and is a veteran of the war in Afghanistan. He lives in Birmingham, Alabama, with his old dog, Gilbert.
