My Southern Living arrived yesterday with a surprise. Baltimore was named one of the top 10 tastiest towns in the South along with New Orleans and Charleston, S.C.
The blurb in the January issue, pictured, reads: “Sizzling Harbor East ’hood, crab cakes, and restaurants with a fierce sense of place.”
That’s high praise from Southern Living’s staff, who “gathered for a summit here in our Test Kitchen, pared it down to 10 nominees, and are putting it to a vote this month,” wrote M. Lindsay Bierman in his editor’s note.
We face some tough competition, but if everyone’s casts a vote, who knows, maybe we can win this food fight between the states. The winner will be announced in the magazine’s April issue, which will also include culinary information about every town on the list.
Voting starts on Friday. Go here to vote.
