About Food

In any town, village or community throughout the world, there are numerous gathering places where locals meet to converse, socialize or conduct business. The town hall is of course the focal point of community activities in many towns across America. But other venues such as schools, churches and community centers also serve as the focus of community activity. Among the oldest, most venerated and most popular gathering places in any town or village are the Local Taverns. Local Taverns have existed for centuries. They were found in cities and villages throughout Europe as far back as the Middle Ages. In America, Local Taverns were in existence as early as the 17 the century. They were found in several colonies, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Virginia. The name tavern derives from the Greek word for workshop. Local Taverns are by tradition homes where guests partake of food and drink. In the past, they were distinguished from inns and public houses in that tavern guests were invited by the owner whereas these other establishments served more like todays hotels and restaurants, welcoming transient guests. Today, those distinctions are less apparent, with many smaller eating and drinking establishments of all types referring to themselves as taverns. The type of food and drink served at Local Taverns depends on where the tavern is located. Local Taverns in England (more often referred to as pubs) serve pub style food including English style ales as well as a menu including English dishes such as sausage and Shepherds pie. In Local Taverns in Greece, on the other hand, you might find a variety of Greek wines and liquors along with various fresh seafood dishes including calamari and other locally caught specialties.

More on Taverns

While Local Taverns are most associated with European countries and America, they are also a part of the culture of towns and cities in many parts of Latin America, Africa and even Asia. European settlers who moved to these continents brought with them their customs and traditions. Among these traditions were Local Taverns. These establishments then caught on with native residents and became local traditions themselves. Today, Local Taverns have vastly expanded their range of menu items as well as the service and amenities they offer guests. Many Local Taverns include gourmet food items as well as extensive wine lists. Some have a range of entertainment options, including wide screen televisions, pool tables and other games. Some even offer live entertainment. While many of these establishments are relatively new, in many towns and cities you will find true colonial-era Local Taverns, some listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Wherever you find a tavern, you will almost assuredly find a gathering of local residents. If youre touring a particular region, Local Taverns are a great place to get a sense of the local culture and meet people who can give you some real insight into the history and character of the area. Local Taverns are truly an integral part of the life of any community.
