For a long time, American cooking was â€“ to be put it blandly â€“ kinda bland.

Discover Richmond June 2017: What's up Doc?
A century ago, a syndicated health column in The Times-Dispatch reflected the era. The good doctor, noting how women cared too much about protecting rugs and furniture, was promoting the benefits of sun exposure.

Weâ€™ve come a long way, thank goodness. In this edition, we feature a bakerâ€™s dozen of local medical specialists ( gasp â€“ some are women!) who share insights into their fields. From promising technologies to some back-to-basics reminders for patients, they give us a window into good health â€“ bones to brains, noses to knuckles.

Discover Richmond June 2019
In the RTDâ€™s new Discover Richmond magazine (June/July 2019), we go out to eat â€“ way out.
Summer is a great time to travel, and you don't need to go far from the capital region to explore Virginia food (and more) along the way. Combining wanderlust with an appetite, we head north, east, south and west from Richmond to find delicious treats â€“ whether savory, sweet or thirst-quenching â€“ and interesting history along the way
We also take a big crack at a favorite snack. Not far from Richmond, the peanut has astoundingly deep roots â€“ and you might be surprised at how this once lowly "nut" (or is it?!) helped define Virginia.
Back in town, we explore portraits of the artists â€“ four of them. We find out about their work, how they find a home for it and how they make a living.
We revisit a curious civil disturbance from the Civil War: The Richmond Bread Riot of 1863 was indeed a sign of the times.
We also look at a powerful "tree," not even 10 feet tall, that tells an amazing story and highlights a local legend. We turn over a rock that has truly been places. We tell the truth about a polygraph. And we acknowledge a colorful bird that has faded away.
