Here’s to Making Memories

Many of my favorite, most smile-inducing memories involve food.

As a 3-year-old, I would beg my mom for slices of onions, radishes, and cherry tomatoes from our garden, eating them enthusiastically until the edges of my mouth became raw. July weekends as a kid were punctuated with blissful batches of blueberry pancakes that my dad would make with wild blueberries we picked ourselves. And no summer was complete without a trip to our favorite outdoor seafood and ice cream place for clam strips and moose tracks.

As I’ve gotten older, I’m still happiest when I’m eating. I’m a firm believer that the right food and atmosphere have the ability to make a special moment even more special, to transform a would-have-been boring day into something completely unforgettable, and to connect two people who otherwise might not have much to say to each other (I’ve been on at least one terrible date that was semi-saved by a good burger).

Lucky for us in the Lehigh Valley, we live in a mini food mecca with countless amazing restaurants (many of which you’ll find on the following pages) that know how to make any moment a little more memorable—whether it’s by serving up the most incredible homemade pasta or peach pie you’ve ever tasted, or because the bartender always remembers your drink order. It’s a hotspot for healthy foodies, too, with ample access to local organic produce, sustainably raised meats, and even locally brewed kombucha—all things you’ll learn about in this issue’s feature articles.

So go ahead and flip through, dog-ear the pages, and start making dinner reservations and farmers’ market dates. In a few years, you can thank me for all the happy, food-centric memories you’ve racked up.
