Can you eat at every great restaurant in Southern Delaware in one long weekend? No, but I almost died trying. Take it from me, it’s a great way to go.
I often write about outdoor recreation and adventure along with my normal travel articles, but recently I've been trying a new style adventure - that is food adventure.

Eating Rehoboth Technically, this isn't an eatery, but it was an adventure. Show up in Rehoboth Beach and Paul and Bob will lead you to five or six local eateries. You won't know where you are going until you get there, but everywhere we went was top notch. Great conversation along the way as well.
Spice and Tea Exchange When the vacation is over and you're back in your kitchen, you'll enjoy the spices and herbs available from here. They also have a great selection of teas, sugars and oils. Samples available. Sniffing is suggested.
Another thing worth mentioning before we start with the individual eateries is the upcoming Midatlantic Wine + Food Festival 2014. For one amazing weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to pick from 50 top notch dinners, 23 learning courses put on by 90 world renowned chefs and 20 winemakers.
