Are you hungry, Billings? We’re sure you will be when you read—or should we say devour—this issue, the most drool-worthy one of the year: the Foodie issue!

Narrowing down on what to include in this issue was no easy task. After all, we have so many sensational local flavors and global cuisines. However, we are confident that this issue will keep your mouth watering from beginning to end.

While we don’t like to play favorites, the Foodie issue is near and dear to our hearts. After all, food is not only nourishing (and delicious) but it also brings people together—whether it’s a special anniversary dinner, a much-needed lunch break with coworkers, a friend’s birthday party or even a casual weeknight meal with family. Food is often considered one of life’s great pleasures.

Consider this issue your foodie guide, featuring something to satisfy the hunger for any taste in the family. Feeling inspired by the pros? Channel your inner chef and whip up a Billings Lifestyle-approved recipe (or two) in your own kitchen! We promise we wouldn’t steer you wrong. See pages XX [Culinary Creations] to get started.

Dig in, Billings!
