Southern Living Discovers Southern WVMay 31, 2011
If there’s one thing Southern WV and Southern Living magazine have in common – it’s an appreciation for great food.
In the magazine’s recent guidebook, Southern Living Off the Eaten Path: Favorite Southern Dives and 150 Recipes that Made Them Famous, Southern Living travel editor Morgan Murphy discovered that some tasty treats can be found at our own out-of-the-way eateries. The book, available in bookstores now, details the great food finds found in Greenbrier County at The Crazy Baker and Stardust Café
Murphy fell in love with The Crazy Baker’s quest for “quality ingredients” and details this out of the way bakery and its online mecca of fine pastries and desserts. He gives the secrets behind Stardust’s “Trust Me Salad” and gives kudos to their use of local foods and farm-to-table concepts. And touts a few other WV spots along the way.
If you’re looking to take in a few off-the-beaten-path eateries in your travels this summer, you may want to pack a copy of the book. And dog-ear the pages marked West Virginia.
