October 2019 issue

OCT2019

In the October issue of Virginia Living, we offer a roundup of delicious side dishes by seven chefs from across the Commonwealth that are easy enough for weekdays but good enough for holidays. We invite you to join us at the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival in Ferrum, which for 50 years has presented a great opportunity to see traditional handcrafts, music, machinery, food, and animal contests including coon treeing and mule jumping, and we are taking you on an American music roadtrip from Memphis to New Orleans. We also trace the history of the former coalmines in Midlothian and we meet celebrity chef Patrick O’Connell, winner of the 2019 James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award. Plus, we present State of Education, our annual special section featuring Top High Schools & Colleges, a list of more than 150 programs demonstrating innovation and excellence in our schools.
