Pennsylvania Spotlights Rich Food Culture on Four New Culinary Trails

First Lady Frances Wolf and Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Deputy Secretary for Marketing, Tourism & Film Carrie Fischer Lepore celebrated Pennsylvania's rich food history and heritage with the launch of four new culinary trails: Picked: An Apple Trail; Baked: A Bread Trail; Chopped: A Charcuterie Trail; and Pickled: A Fermented Trail.

"In Pennsylvania, food is not just a meal - it is an important piece of our history, culture and legacy," said Deputy Secretary Fischer Lepore. "These culinary trails allow travelers to more fully immerse themselves into what it means to be a Pennsylvanian through our food legacy and traditions. And the culinary trails will introduce longtime Pennsylvanians to new restaurants, artisanal shops, and other venues, helping to boost the many small businesses that form the fabric of the commonwealth's food legacy."

The culinary trails feature local farms, artisans, and other food businesses from every county and corner of Pennsylvania, providing travelers with an immersive, multisensory understanding of the commonwealth's bountiful food culture.
