I’m heading down to Baltimore tomorrow, on vacation. And sure, there are great things to do there: it’s in easy driving distance of Washington DC, and Gettysburg. The National Aquarium is in Baltimore (I love aquariums), the USS Constellation, and the Edgar Allan Poe house.
But what really gets me salivating is the thought of trying the local cuisine. Maryland is famous for crab cakes, Chesapeake chicken and pit beef. The state even has an official dessert: Smith Island Cake. I hadn’t heard of that, so had to look up the details: this magical cake has 6-12 thin layers of yellow cake, each with a layer of peanut butter cup pieces, and then it’s covered in chocolate fudge icing.
Oh, yeah.
