In Our Summer 2015 Issue
LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER
I’m convinced there are two types of people: interstate travelers and back road wanderers.
While pretty much everyone has to jump on a major highway from time to time, the former group prefers it – they’re all about arriving at a destination. The latter? They’re more apt to focus on discovering what’s on the way, to meander down the winding back roads through a landscape that time hasn’t changed much, through towns that are happily stuck in time too.
Here at edible, we’re squarely in the back roads camp. And we’re happy to introduce you to what you might not find if you don’t get off the beaten path. In this issue, that includes a road trip just north of Tampa Bay to hunt for scallops in the waters off the coast of Citrus County (Gone Scallopin’, page 16). A look inside a new distillery that embraces the old style of the Sunshine State (The Spirit(s) of St. Pete, page 22). And a visit with a couple who are serving up cool treats to hot shoppers at markets all over the area (Crushing It, page 12).
So sit back, relax and read on while we give you a taste of our Florida … no travel (interstate or back roads) required.
