Without enjoying the local food, a trip to the Jersey Shore would not be complete.
These dishes have a rich history that dates back to the Victorian era, when opulent feasts were served at large coastal hotels. Prohibition and the Great Depression saw the emergence of a variety of cuisines and eateries, as well as the introduction of fast food and the creation of famous boardwalk delights. Fancy and fast food restaurants have been supplied by local fishermen and farmers for decades prior to the farm to table trend. Consequently, whether you enjoy salt water taffy, pig rolls, or tomato pies, join a delectable historical tour and explore time-honored sweets from Sandy Hook to Cape May.
