Vin 205 Farm to Table Bistro

Foooooodies.

OMG. Please eat here. ‘Nuf said if you ask me  but I’ll go a touch further.

I’ve enjoyed a few great meals with mr. foodie at Vin 205 recently. One was a Wine and Swine Dinner that blew us away and blew our wine budget too, lol…because we bought some great new wine.

So good, in fact, that we decided to bring Chef Oren Feuerberg in on one of our Chef’s Tables. Four courses, family-style, with a great group of foodies and friends.

Read about it here in my latest food column in YES! Weekly!

Vin 205 has a little wine market with all kinds of lovely wine,  plus local meats, boutique cheese, chocolates and wine accessories and they have plans to add even more. Vin 205 also has a great-looking brunch. Check them out!
Our next Triadfoodies Chef’s Table will be announced later this week. We’ll be doing a special kick-off of our High Country Events in October with Vidalia (date announced soon) and our November Chef’s Table returns to the Triad at Sophie’s Cork & Ale in Lexington on November 13. You’ll see that update in a future email.

Cheers!

Join us at our next Chef’s Table with Chef Ali Utley of the Historic Brookstown Inn!

Hi, foodies!

We’re back at it again with another delicious Triadfoodies Chef’s Table!

Our July Chef’s Table is super exciting. Chef Mary Alison Utley (we call her Ali) has recently taken over the Executive Chef position at The Historic Brookstown Inn. She’ll be the next chef to surprise us on Tuesday, July 25.

Chef has literally worked her way up in the culinary field. “I started out washing dishes and gradually worked my way up.”

Check out the list of where Chef Ali has worked her magic: Leon’s Cafe, Rainbow News & Cafe, Christipher’s Global Cuisine, Mundo, The Millenium Center, Sapora Ridge Country Club, and most recently Meridian Restaurant, where she and Chef Mark Grohman’s team wowed us with multiple, incredible courses. Ali took the position next door at Brookstown Inn to be able to spend more time wth her teenage daughters.

What will Chef Ali surprise us with? Who knows? We never know what’ s coming at our Chef’s Table. She hinted that she may be dabbling in Baltic or Turkish and she promises the menu will be different than anything we’ve had so far.

Here’s how it works. Reserve with a ticket here and you’ll join us at our table on Tuesday, July 25. Seating is limited. A reminder of our pricing:Your ticket price of $30 INCLUDES your multi-course meal including dessert as well as tax and gratuity associated with the meal. Beverage (and gratuity for the purchase of beverages) are not included in the ticket price. Please take care of your server on any beverage service. We’ll see you on July 25th!

Just Announced! triadfoodies Chef’s Table with Mozzarella Fellas!

This time, we’re headed back to Winston-Salem for a delicious night of Italian cuisine.

Our Chef’s Table will feature the Mozzarella Fellas!

Wait until you meet these Fellas! The Mozzarella Fellas, Darrell Coltrane and Brian Ricciardi, are becoming Winston-Salem sensations with their freshly prepared and delicious Italian cuisine!

We’ve eaten there a number of times and have been so impressed by their food and service and you need to get to know them better and be delighted by a night of surprises.
The Fellas do almost all of it by hand. Mozzarella made fresh every day. The dough, also made fresh every day. And on and on. This isn’t just your average Italian eatery and it’s definitely not just a pizza joint.
It is so much more. We’ve been so impressed by the passion that Brian and Darrell have for bringing the freshest and best to you every day. Quality Italian that doesn’t break the bank. From appetizers and calzones to salads and pizza, entrees and now they serve brunch on Sunday. Maybe we’ll get some brunch tastes while we’re here. You never know, because at our Chef’s Table, we let the chefs surprise us! The Fellas have promised to really bring you a wonderful experience while showing their expertise. Brian tells us their creative juices are flowing! Brian learned everything he knows from his Italian grandmother. And Darrell learned his way through the kitchen since his childhood in Sicily. For more about them visitmozzarellafellas.com.


If you have a food sensitivity, they can make pizza happen for you! Gluten-free, vegetarian? These Fellas will rise to the challenge. And you’ll be so impressed with the Fellas’ care for bringing you excellent service. What a team!

We try to showcase a wide variety of our area’s talent and this is a great way to mix it up.


Here’s how it works. Reserve with a ticket here and you’ll join us at our table on Monday, June 26. The whole restaurant is ours for the night! Even so, seating is limited.
A reminder of our pricing:Your ticket price of $27 INCLUDES your multi-course meal including dessert as well as tax and gratuity associated with the meal. Beverage (and gratuity for the purchase of beverages including wine and beer) are not included in the ticket price. Please take care of your server on any beverage service. We’ll see you on June 26!

Join us for an amazing Chef’s Table at Sedgefield Country Club

Foodies…you will not want to miss our next Chef’s Table.

Our May Chef’s Table is truly special. Only a lucky few get to enjoy the cuisine of Chef James Patterson. He’s the Executive Chef of Sedgefield Country Club, home of the PGA’s Wyndham Championship. And Patterson is more and more becoming a local culinary superhero. Chef Patterson was the Greensboro champ in last year’s Got To Be NC Competition Dining series and has since been on the competition and exhibition circuit to the delight of many.

Patterson and his team have received so many accolades that he’s already on tap to be the coveted Featured Executive Chef of Triad Local First’s 2018 Community Table. You need to know him!

Chef’s food is beautiful, creative and delicious. His commitment to the community is endearing and he’s just super nice and fun to be around. He’s also been one of our #1 supporters of Chef’s Table and has been there to support his fellow comrades at our events. We are just excited that he’s the one we get to see this time. And yes, enjoy his food, which is amazing.

Imagine dinner overlooking the famed Ross Course, the same course played by the PGA greats at the Wyndham Championship. This Donald Ross course has been returned to its former glory and is the only Ross-designed course in the country to host a regular PGA event.  This is truly a unique Chef’s Table. You won’t want to miss it.

You must RSVP via ticket purchase. Seating is limited.  Get tickets on EventBrite HERE

**Please let us know if you have any food sensitivity or allergies. Contact me directly Kristi@triadfoodies.com. 

Please note the pricing structure:
Your ticket price of $33 INCLUDES your multi-course meal (including dessert) as well as tax and gratuity associated with the meal.

Join us for triadfoodies Chef’s Table at Taaza Bistro this Wednesday!

Good golly it’s been a while since I posted. I will try to change that.

With homeschooling (OMG) and writing each week for YES! Weekly and the general responsibilities of life, I find it hard to stop and make myself post something. But I def wanted to let you know that we have a few more seats available at our monthly Chef’s Table coming up Wednesday in Greensboro at Taaza Fresh Indian Bistro.

What is Chef’s Table? It’s basically our way of getting you into a restaurant and in front of a chef for a VERY affordable price for a taste of what’s on the menu. It’s a way of letting the chef surprise us and it’s SUPER fun. We started in May 2016 and we’ve gone strong since then, some with sell-out crowds. There’s limited seating available and as I write this we have 5 seats remaining.

Here’s how it works. You click this link and it sends you to the Eventbrite site and there you purchase your tickets. You’ll enjoy a multi-course global meal… but I never know what’s going to be served. We’re all surprised. No menu…just delicious surprises…all from the creative noggin of the chef/culinary team or maybe something they are wanting to highlight from the menu. And sometimes it requires you to think out of the box, get out of your comfort zone. Most of the dishes are served family style, so if you don’t like chevre or kale or venison, then you can nibble and let the rest of your comrades enjoy.

About Taaza Fresh Indian Bistro….you can read the review I wrote about them in YES! Weekly.img_0485 It was amazing and the BEST Indian food I’ve ever had with excellent service.

I think you’ll love it. Join us by clicking the ticket link above!

I also have some exciting news to share but you’ll have to wait until the next post.

See ya later foodies!
