The Local Palate falls in love with Virginia’s Blue Ridge

A single visit to Virginia’s Blue Ridge (VBR) by Stephanie Burt, Editor and Director of Digital Content for The Local Palate magazine, yielded five articles to-date highlighting the vibrant culinary scene in the region.  The Roanoke Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau in collaboration with Geiger & Associates Public Relations Firm, had the pleasure of hosting Stephanie for a media tour last August, when she discovered VBR’s metro-mountain food culture.  During her visit, Stephanie connected with the Roanoke Times food writer, Christina Nifong, and Lucky Restaurant owner/bartender, Hunter Johnson, to discover several story ideas resulting in articles both in print and online for the magazine.


The Local Palate is the South’s premier food culture publication; a unique blend of culinary history and Southern hospitality, indigenous ingredients, and world class chefs with a total circulation of 121,000.  The combined advertising equivalency for these five articles was $15,525.
