Last week, in YES! Weekly, we took you on a little wee sized food crawl through one of the most iconic and adorable neighborhoods in Greensboro that is oh #sogso!

foodie b’eat: Help a Local Chef Advance to the Top 16 in a National Competition!

September is National Breakfast Month. And two of the Triad’s most beloved chefs will represent their cities in Thomas’ Breads Hometown Breakfast Battle. This isn’t necessarily a “local” purveyor of goods, but it’s fun and a way for you to support our local chefs. Let’s get all the nooks and crannies, shall we?

Greensboro Chef Chris Blackburn from Scrambled and Winston-Salem Chef John Bobby from A Noble Grille (yes, that’s the right new name)  will represent their towns in Hometown Breakfast Battle – a national chef recipe competition featuring 135 chefs from 135 cities across the country who will battle it out to create America’s best breakfast in honor of the 135th Anniversary of the Thomas’ brand.

Each chef has created one locally inspired recipe using a variety of Thomas’ iconic English Muffins and Bagels and added some local flair to breakfast – the most important meal of the day. Chef Chris Blackburn’s take is a Brown Butter Charred Thomas’ English Muffin Sandwich,

Oh, foodies…how my heart was broken after my beloved Josephine’s Kitchen stopped dinner service earlier this summer. Gracious, what a bummer. But when Chef Chris Blackburn and his partner, Sarah Keith, announced a “new beginning,” well, we knew that what they had up their jacket sleeves would probably be pretty fantastic.

So after a couple months of waiting, Scrambled Southern Diner is open. It’s breakfast and brunch all day—they took beginning and made it literal. But, they have lunch and blue plate specials too. I joke that they’ve closed one of my favorite restaurants to serve my least favorite meal ….breakfast (yeah, I know I’m a weirdo).

Read here about what’s in store for this new eatery.   It’s already pretty popular.  And they even please me, the foodie who couldn’t care less about breakfast. 🙂

When you check it out, let us know what you think!
