Belmont, Massachusetts has an intriguing history filled with good times and bad times. Well before the 20th century, this town was actually picking up cred as a gastronomy hub all across the Commonwealth.
The original pioneers in the Northeast were gutsy gals and guys who had to toil in the soil and waterways to get any milk, poultry and lobsters by harvest time, or supper time for that matter. Due to the state of affairs in the old centuries, the meals were unattractive and the destitute cooks were characterless. Bay Staters used saplings, fruits and flora that were inexpensive to harvest from the farmlands around Nantucket, Dukes and Plymouth counties. The brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes, we laud today seemed almost too average to the people of the past.
In recent days any enlightened foodie worth his selfie stick simply must try the yummy foods which were invented in Massachusetts. Thanks to canny nourishment sites like the Exception Magazine, menu items like fried chicken and steaks are suddenly legendary again.
Take some time to eat like a local so that you can feel the deviant rhythm of life in Belmont, Massachusetts. Some of the culinary institutions here have been in business since before WWII. But there are also contemporary culinary institutions that are just as beloved. These serve as a link between past and present.
Favorites made from milk, poultry and lobsters are crafted anew using old recipes in this hub. The chefs find inspiration from heirloom veggies that were used in the colonial times and once forgotten. Please realize that people have to taste these foods for themselves to absolutely digest the glory.
