Throughout it's history, Virginia has been a leading tastemaker in food and foodways.

Our state is rich in ingredients, from the abundance of the Chesapeake Bay, across the farmlands and rolling piedmont, to the Shenandoah Valley and beyond. Hospitality is a key component of Old Dominion character, with everything from nibbles on the porch to expansive holiday meals presented with a sincere interest in sharing food made by hand and from the heart. This is America's First Food Region; this is the Birthplace of American Cuisine.

Celebrating it all is Virginia Eats + Drinks Magazine, a statewide publication dedicated to showcasing the Commonwealth, all the wonderful things to eat and drink, and all the incredible people that make it happen.

"In the beginning, all America was Virginia," said author, planter and statesman Colonel William Byrd II in 1732. So, in fact, we are all Virginians. Come home to Virginia, a big table awaits you.
