Food photos ought to make us hungry, whether it’s for a forkful of pie or simply more information. That’s what our photographers have provided this year in Taste as we homed in on all things local.

Whether it was a bite of the national baking craze (think Cronuts), a beekeeper atop the Foshay or profiles of local chefs, our photographers took us to the kitchens, farms, restaurants and markets that help us put dinner on the table.

Join us in our mealtime journey in 2014. We promise to feed you well.
