foodie b’eat: Triad Local First’s 5th Annual Community Table via CHOW in YES! Weekly

Old Mill at Guilford

Community Table is an event that is near and dear to my heart as are most of the folks involved with Triad Local First. All local, all the time. The Community Table is a fundraiser for TLF’s Buy Local Campaign which launches every holiday season to help promote members’ businesses.

It’s a great cause, but I’m telling you, it’s a GREAT dinner prepared by a local chef who’s using locally sourced ingredients that have been donated by TLF members. Even the flatware and dinnerware are on loan. This year, the event will take place at the Old Mill of Guilford.

Read more here about this event in my latest column in CHOW at Yes Weekly. Here we talk about how TLF is crossing the county line and reaching out to chefs in Winston-Salem. Awesome!

Rest assured triadfoodies will be there to share with you all the amazingness. But it’d be even better if you were there!

foodie b’eat: The Best of Asian in the Triad via CHOW in YES! Weekly

This might be more of a refresher for some of you who are more regular readers of the blog. Here’s a checklist of some of our fave Asian spots across the Triad.  It’s all in my latest CHOW article in YES! Weekly.

By the way, since we went to press, we found another that we really love. nOma Food is a new fast casual restaurant on Battleground Avenue. They officially open Monday, August 24. You must check them out. They are fab. Especially love their curry and the beef rice bowl! Enjoy, foodies! PS…if you don’t see a fave, let me know what I’m missing.

mr. foodie and I hit up local fave Hutch & Harris last Friday as they softly opened their new Side Bar. You see, H & H is known for its awesome after-work hangout-ness. However, it’s a small bar. Read here how owner Greg Richardson got the itch to expand and see a few new highlights from the new Raw Bar. Plus they got dranks and taps and impressively fun new digs.  It’s all part of my latest escapades via CHOW at YES! Weekly.
