It seems like a lot of coverage on foodies -- that rarefied group who mentally pencils in ramp season and knows the best place within a five-block radius to find the best [insert dish here] -- focuses on 20 somethings posting stylized pictures of their food on Facebook.
But come on: post 50s know their way around gardens, farmers markets and kitchens too. And as the ultimate post 50 master of food Anthony Bourdain said in his book "Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly": "Your body is not a temple, it's an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.” What better way to enjoy the ride of retirement than eating, drinking and being merry?
Huff/Post50 consulted lists from Travel + Leisure, Fodor's and Food and Wine, along with checking in with New Jersey financial advisor and CPA Tom Corley to see which of the 15 retirement cities also had the added bonus of being affordable. Did your town make our list of retirement cities perfect for foodies? Or did we make an omission as glaring as eating at a chain restaurant? Let us know in the comments.
