As a travel guide, the cookbook helpfully outlines three exciting North Carolina regions: Mountains, Piedmont, and Coastal. Each region boasts its own history, unique food culture, North Carolina recipes, and a range of thrilling attractions.

Mountainside Munching

First, you’ll stop in the Mountains Region on the far western side of the state. Once there, make your first lunch stop at Reid’s Café & Catering. At Reid’s, you’ll enjoy the freshest seafood, farm goods, made-to-order soups, handcrafted sandwiches, scratch-made pastries, and so much more. Try the Sunburst Trout with Creamed Corn & Charred Salsa. From there, your next stop is Beech Mountain Grille for a yummy home-style meal. Here, the owners believe the greatest ingredients in any dish are love, personality, and customer service. Sit back and relax with a bowl of Lowcountry Shrimp & Grits with a mountainside view.

Piedmont Pizzas & Pork Chop Sandwiches

Next, you’ll enter the Piedmont Region in the center of the state. Babymoon Café awaits your visit, and the Italian-influenced menu has something for everyone. For example, the café serves a variety of pizzas and pastas. You’ll also enjoy seafood, steak, and salads. The Veal Saltimbocca comes highly recommended. When done, zip over to Mount Airy for a stop of Snappy Lunch of Andy Griffith fame. Since 1923, the lunch counter has been serving sandwiches and hot dogs to guests—and yes, Andy Griffith himself. Don’t leave the place without first trying the world-famous Pork Chop Sandwich, invented by the previous owner Charles Dowell.

Crab Cakes on the Coast

Finally, you’ll stop in the beautiful Coastal Region, all the way east and fronted by the endless Atlantic Ocean. Make your first stop in Nags Head, at Blue Moon Beach Grill. You’re in for a quirky, fun-filled dining experience, Southern comfort food, and also affordable prices. Sample rotating daily specials, cordial service, and the “once in a blue moon” experience. The Blue Moon Crab Cakes are a must-try dish. When you’re all finished, make your way to Kitty Hawk for a stop at Barrier Island Bagels for a tasty treat to tide you over the ride home. The restaurant prepares the Outer Banks’ best bagels daily, never serving frozen or premade bagels. You might also enjoy the açaí bowls and seven house-made customizable smoothies. You’ll soon see why Barrier Island Bagels is the best of the beach.
