Heads up, Kansas City food lovers: The Star’s 2014 Food Issue is out. Find it all here.

The special issue pays homage to Midwestern cuisine with "No Plate Like Home," a 32-page guide to the people, places and products that make the Kansas City food scene truly unique.

From Strawberry Hill Povitica to Colors Macarons, Hammons Roasted Black Walnut Oil to Hoganville Family Farms Sauerkraut, we've dug up some deliciously hidden gems. Take a trip back in time to Peter May's House of Kielbasa. Wake up to Pepe's Carnitas. This spring look for fabulous oyster mushrooms from Trammell Treasures Mushroom Farm at the Overland Park Farmers Market.

Celebrate a new barbecue sandwich named for Chow Town blogger Ardie Davis. Try a slab of Black Dog Coffeehouse's gourmet toast and buy some bread from Ibis Bakery to take home. Get a recipe to make Wilma's Real Good Food's meatloaf sliders and Ca Va's Lady in Green.

Last year, The Star’s

2012 food issue won first place

in the Best Newspaper Food Project category in The Association of Food Journalists’ competition.

Yesterday Star food editor Jill Silva gave KCUR listeners a preview of “No Plate Like Home” —

listen to her “Up to Date” appearance here.
