FOOD & DRINK
TAKE A BITE OUT OF THE
TASTIEST TRAIL IN TOWN
ample whisper-thin cookies; flaky, savory chicken pie; and
sweet sugar cake studded with pools of brown sugar, butter,
and cinnamon along Winston-Salem's Moravian Culinary Trail.
Celebrating the area's deep Moravian food roots, this trio of
online "trails" features deep-dive history, tried-and-true recipes, and go-to
lists of places to sample and savor these dishes and delights.
More than a million pounds of these simple-yet-sophisticated delicacies are
baked in Winston-Salem each year. Called the "world's thinnest cookie,"
Moravian Cookies can be found at Winkler Bakery in Old Salem, Dewey's
Bakery, Mrs. Hanes' Moravian Cookies, and Salem Kitchen, for a start.
Hungry for more? Log onto the trail to learn about Moravian Cookie-based
hors d'oeuvres and a local cookie-based craft beer.
MORAVIAN CHICKEN PIE
Authentic Moravian Chicken Pie isn't your traditional pot pie. Rather, this
savory pastry dish is likened to a casserole, as its flaky piecrusts are filled
with rich gravy and meat, rather than vegetables. Devour a savory slice at
Cherries Café, Hutch & Harris, The Tavern in Old Salem, and Spring House
Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar, or find a list of take-and-bake options - plus tips
and tricks for making your own - online.
MORAVIAN SUGAR CAKE
Locals will happily tell you that Easter and Christmas aren't truly celebrated
without a wedge of this warm yeast cake with pockets packed with butter,
brown sugar, and cinnamon. Thankfully, you don't have to wait for the
holidays to try some for yourself. Visit Dewey's Bakery for a timeless taste,
or follow the shop's recipe, posted on the virtual trail, for four small cakes.
