If you'll remember back to my June 12th blog, I did a piece on the Appalachian Food Summit. Bon Appetite Appalachia was part of that undertaking. Now here they are again, putting out a culinary map-guide that can be found in Food Traveler Magazine featuring points of interest in WV and the Appalachian region.
"Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin joined Appalachian Regional Commission Federal Co-Chairman Earl F. Gohl Tuesday to announce the nationwide premier of the Bon Appétit Appalachia culinary map-guide.The guide, which recently debuted as an insert in the summer issue of Food Traveler magazine, features 283 locations, including 21 from West Virginia and showcases some of the most distinctive food destinations across the 13-state Appalachian region."
"Southern W.Va.’s first legal moonshining business describes their product as “home-grown and home-distilled, using only ingredients produced in West Virginia for the most authentic and finest tasting moonshine in the tradition of Devil Anse Hatfield.” All products sold by Hatfield and McCoy Moonshine are made in W.Va."
There seems to be a trend of good news flowing from Appalachia recently. I say that it's about time. I am also truly excited to try some of the Hatfield and McCoy Moonshine if I am ever in their neck of the woods!
