For centuries, dating back to the time of the Native Americans, the fertile soils and the bountiful bays and salt marshes of the Delmarva Peninsula have fed its people well. Over the generations, its food culture has become intertwined with the history of the people who call this land home. Food determined where people lived, how they traveled, how their economy functioned and how they celebrated and shared the products of soil and salt water. Local writer and photographer Curtis Badger narrates this history with recipes based on seasonal bounty.
