Thanks for grabbing a copy of this year’s Dining Guide. It’s a fun little publication in which we take a look at the region’s dining scene—from the chefs who feed us to the local food trends they inspire.

On page 5, you’ll find a story from Shaun Hunter, a writer and vegan who has the inside scoop on local social media groups that offer valuable information and a sense of community to those with special dietary considerations.

On the other end of the foodie spectrum, we’ve got a guide to the best local donut shops from contributor Abbey Kay. You’ll find that on page 7.

And—on page 10—we’ve got a story from Matt Bieker, who sat down with Mitchell Moore, a local pastor and chef who co-owns M&M’s Southern Cafe with his wife, Geishula.

Over in the Arts&Culture section—page 14, in the regular issue—you’ll find a story I wrote about the culinary traditions of the Comstock and the chefs who keep them alive today.

Happy reading!
