Delaware: A Foodie’s Dream

From seafood to breweries and everything in between

Dining out has become one of this country’s favorite pastimes and Delaware chefs are at the forefront of this culinary revolution. With plentiful local produce and fresh and salt water fishing, Delaware offers everything from fresh, local seafood to James Beard-nominated chefs preparing appetizing, flavor-filled fare.

Here, there’s something for every taste, every budget and every member of your family.

Bringing Fun to Food 

Where experience and flavor reign supreme 

For a more community-based experience, Delaware food festivals can be found almost every month of the year throughout the state.

For example, Bridgeville’s Apple Scrapple Festival celebrates the iconic Delaware breakfast meat, while the Middletown Peach Festival hosts an enticing peach pie contest, honoring the official dessert of Delaware.

Reflecting on Delaware’s pluralistic communities, you can also experience a host of international festivals celebrating Greek, Italian, Chinese and German cuisine throughout the year.
