Baltimore, Maryland

In the late 19th century, Baltimore was the second largest US port-of-entry for European immigrants. Add its location sitting on an arm of the grand Chesapeake Bay (the largest estuary in the country), and it’s easy to understand why Baltimore’s food traditions are rich and diverse, blended with African- and Native-American cooking styles, and always served with Southern hospitality. Low profile perhaps, but, one of the North America’s oldest regional cuisines rich with dishes starring succulent blue crab, rock fish, fresh clams, Chincoteague oysters, waterfowl, country hams, chicken, summer sweet corn, and barbecued meats. Add sauerkraut—always served with Thanksgiving turkey--shoofly pie, stews, crab boils, crab cakes, and what’s not to like?
