Travel Through These Delicious Food Finds From Around The U.S.A.


It’s that time of year again – summer vacation plans are being made and visions of four-hour lunches in far-flung locales take up entirely too much real estate in our heads. As a way to help make the time between now and takeoff go a little faster, here are a few of my latest favorite travel-inspired food items, all available for home delivery.

OmMade Peanut Butter

They say that Virginia is for Lovers…of peanut butter. This beautiful, boutique, peanut butter brand has a dozen different flavors (Chocolate Delight, Coconut Bliss, Chai Nirvana, Vibrant Turmeric, Hella Hot, Crunchie Munchie, and more), is made with Virginia peanuts (sorry Georgia, we have a new favorite), and comes in a variety of sizes and gift packs.

Yaupon Brothers Teas

Yaupon is the only caffeinated tea native to North America. Indigenous people have been drinking it for millennia, and now this sustainable, weather-resistant, resilient, and altogether delicious tea is experiencing a bit of a renaissance throughout the South. Whole Foods even named it their #1 ingredient for 2023, and with flavors like Lavender Coconut, Florida Chai, and Revive Mint, we can see why.

il Buco Alimentari Fai da Te Gift Box

This New York City hotspot is a favorite for chef Justin Smillie’s spectacular seasonal Mediterranean fare, but their Alimentari food gifts are just as special. One of our favorites is the Fai da Te gift box which has everything you need to create wonderful meals at home, featuring iconic il Buco branded pantry staples as well as some truly special imported products from Italy and the Mediterranean. Featuring their white wine vinegar, Cerasuola extra virgin olive oil from Sicily, coarse sea salt, along with Scalia anchovy fillets in extra virgin olive oil, Yurrita white tuna in olive oil, Setari dry pasta, and Mariangela Prunotto tomato & basil pasta sauce, it’s like traveling to Italy without leaving your kitchen.

The Pine Club Steaks

This iconic 75 year-old Dayton, Ohio steakhouse offers fans and regulars a chance to enjoy their prime, dry-aged Midwestern steaks – and famous stewed tomatoes, sauces, and dressings – anywhere, anytime, nationwide. Prices range from $149-$249 for filet mignon, ribeyes, and NY Strips, so the only thing missing from your dinner table is that Midwestern charm.

Vital Choice Wild Alaskan Weathervane Scallops

If a cruise to Alaska isn’t on your bingo card, you can still enjoy these pristine weathervane scallops from the state at home. The beauties are plump, sweet and about as delicious as it gets when it comes to scallops. Eat them sauteed, grilled or raw- I personally can’t get enough! Even better, they’re The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable.

Lewis Barbecue Pork Spare Ribs

Pitmaster John Lewis offers his legendary Central Texas-Style barbecue for shipping nationwide. Enjoy his expertly smoked pork spare ribs, which come in a full rack (12 ribs) fully cooked, frozen, and vacuum sealed, with easy reheating instructions Feel to take credit at your next cookout that you have mastered the art of barbecue. We’ll keep your secret.
