Buford Highway stretches approximately two miles through Atlanta’s DeKalb County, Georgia, but its reputation as a hub of ethnic foods has a much more distant reach.
One of the most ethnically diverse regions in the U.S., Buford Highway is home to over 1,000 different immigrant-owned businesses—including restaurants that range from Korean barbecues to Vietnamese bakeries, Mexican taco joints to Bangladeshi curry houses, Spanish tapas bars to amazing farmers’ markets. It can be hard to know where to start.
For years, beer and cheese—staples on snack trays everywhere—flirted with each other, but it wasn’t until the 1930s, at a restaurant in the tiny town of Winchester, Kentucky, that they got together to form a palate-pleasing power couple: beer cheese.
Most people can easily find goat’s milk cheese in local grocery stores. But how often do you get to meet the goats who produced that milk and enjoy fine dining within steps of the barn? At Elderslie Farm, in Kechi, Kansas, you can do both. Taking its name from a Scotch term for “where the elders lie,” the farm actually encompasses four businesses operating under the motto “affection, endeavor, delight.”
Mustard lovers: Head to Middleton, Wisconsin.
More than 6,000 varieties of mustard are showcased at the National Mustard Museum in this town just outside Madison. Admission is free, though the destination is open only five days a week during the coronavirus pandemic (face coverings are required; capacity is limited). Enter and you’ll encounter shelves groaning with mustards from all 50 states and more than 70 countries, along with displays of antique mustard pots, tins and jars, plus vintage posters and advertisements.
Visitors to North Carolina’s Pinehurst and Southern Pines region will find culinary options outnumber even golf courses. Whether you come to shop, explore, adventure, or golf, you’ll find the dining and libations options are as varied and impressive as the area’s storied courses.
As soon you step off the plane in Miami International Airport www.miami-airport.com, you immediately detect you’re somewhere different: An enticing, aromatic scent fills the air. Follow your nose through the terminal, and you’ll find at least one Cuban food stand stacked with hot pastries and a barista dispensing strong cups of coffee. Whether arriving or departing, I can never resist buying a bag of picadillo empanadas (hand pies) and a cortadito (espresso with steamed milk).
