Welcome to our first annual food issue! We’ve got a roundup of new eateries in town, great recommendations for people with specific dietary needs and a peek at current dining trends. There’s a historical look at Jewish delis, suggestions for a farm-to-table Thanksgiving and a profile of PBS’ Pati Jinich. Additionally, we have favorite recipes from some of Charm City’s top chefs and an obsessive love affair with shakshuka. We hope you find these stories as satisfying as we did. Go ahead, devour the goodness.
