Celebrate Virginia! is a celebration of all that is Virginia. It honors the unparalleled heritage of hospitality and history for which Virginia is renown.
Travel, then, to celebrate Virginia on a culinary and historical tour of the great Commonwealth. From Accomack County to York County, Virginia is ripe with great food, great people, and a great tradition of hospitality. Celebrate Virginia! is a delicious combination of favorite recipes, features on historic sites and homes, a summary of each county in Virginia, features on food and food companies that originated in Virginia, and lots of fun, historical tidbits.
Did you know that George Washington was a land speculator? Or that Thomas Jefferson, the supporter of the Lewis & Clark Expedition, never traveled farther west than the Blue Ridge Mountains?
Celebrate Virginia! includes many great recipes. Some are truly historic and some have been shared for the first time. Peek inside to read Senator John Warner's recipe for Crab Cakes (delicious!), Eastern Shore Sweet Potato Casserole, Chowning Tavern Mulled Apple Cider, and Stratford Hall Plantation Ginger Cookies.
