Culinary Schools in West Virginia (WV)

According to the state license plates, West Virginia is the "Wild and Wonderful" state, and in truth it is an outdoor-friendly state. Hiking, skiing, rafting, kayaking, camping, fishing, and biking are all popular activities in the many state parks.

The local cuisine reflects nature-oriented personality of the area. Trout and catfish (caught locally) are popular ingredients in dinner dishes. The Golden Delicious apple is the official state fruit of West Virginia, and Apple Butter is the local tasty treat developed from it. As testament to the popularity of this regional dainty, every year West Virginia hosts an Apple Butter Festival.
