Maryland Culinary Travel

MarylandCooking Classes, Cooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Maryland, nicknamed America in Miniature, has a little bit of everything for culinary travelers: sea and mountain, urban and rural, historic and modern. Likewise, Maryland's cuisine is centered around the climate, the bay, seafood, and the produce. Chefs will change their menus daily, depending on the fresh catch and what more ▼
is being harvested from the fields. Seafood is prime in Maryland, especially oysters, crab, mussels, clams, and rockfish—known as striped bass everywhere but Maryland. Other traditional dishes include grilled pit beef with horseradish, the prized Silver Queen Corn, pan-fried chicken smothered in peppery gravy, and Smith Island Cake, recently chosen as Maryland’s official dessert. Foodies will find that Maryland offers an exciting array of delicious pursuits.
