August 2015 Issue


It’s a summer of good eats and sweet treats in the August 2015 issue of Virginia Living. We get rich thrills from slow grills in our food story, which features rib recipes from around the world (including what may just be the best southern rib recipe we’ve ever tasted), and meet the masters of Chinese cuisine in our dining department. For dessert, we take a trip down memory lane with Virginia candymakers, from the storied centenarians to the ambitious upstarts. Plus, we follow the restoration of Virginia’s first hot rod and the 350th anniversary of Bacon’s Castle in Surry. Television sweetheart Jayma Mays talks growing up in Grundy and life after Glee, we honor a courageous Richmond veterinarian a decade after her Hurricane Katrina animal rescue mission and pay homage to the dead mules of Southern literature. Plus, the best river floats in the state, the Staunton music festival, Orange County cloggers and more. Also in this issue, the special bound-in supplement Dental Health, featuring the secret lives of dentists, toothpaste of the future, oral cancer screening and more, plus Top Dentists 2015. Pick up your copy of the August 2015 issue today!
