October 2012 Issue


Read This Issue

In the October 2012 issue of Virginia Living we celebrate Virginia’s Indian tribes, exploring how the Chickahominy, Pamunkey and others are living very much in the present while keeping their culture and heritage alive for future generations. We also bring you a guide to the fall/winter performing arts season and visit Virginia Institute of Marine Science in Gloucester Point, whose research is key in keeping Virginia’s fish populations viable.

Our food story is a real treat, as we gather five of Virginia’s top chefs at the bucolic Manakintowne Specialty Growers farm to discuss the Slow Food way of life, and cook up some fresh farm-to-fable recipes. Our home story takes us inside the magnificent Mount Airy, the 254-year-old Northern Neck neo-Palladian plantation which is currently home to the 10th generation of the Tayloe family, who have big plans for the estate’s future. Elsewhere in the October 2012 Virginia Living: Preserving Pittsylvania County’s tobacco barns, citizen archeology around the state, interior designer Lauren Liess, the Barter Theatre, Rappahannock River Oysters, the Paschall Brothers, a guide to luxury tailgating and more!

The strawberry bush rewards those who can wait until fall to enjoy its bright red beauty. more
