December 2017 Issue


In the December issue of Virginia Living, we celebrate our 15th anniversary with recipes for sophisticated seasonal cookies and ideas for gifting them with flair. We meet New York City Ballet principal dancer Teresa Reichlen from Clifton and learn about her unconventional rise to the top of one of the country’s most recognized companies, and luthier Marty Fair whose workshop tucked into the woods near Purcellville is the antithesis of our go-go have-to-have-it-now Amazon world. We discover Legume Kitchen & Bar, a new restaurant in Fredericksburg serving a plant-based menu that even a carnivore will love, and we learn about the many ways that Virginia Stage Company in Norfolk incorporates the community into its programming. We also feature a visit to the Esmont-Greenfields Field Trial Club’s spring test, where we meet the canine competitors, breeders and handlers at the vanguard of the state’s horseback shooting dog trial community, and we introduce you to the 16 winners of our 2017 Made in Virginia Awards. Plus, we present our Top Hospital Awards, featured in our special annual supplement Hospitals & Health Care, recognizing more than 40 hospitals and their medical teams at work every day providing us with the highest quality care.
