Join us for BRUNCH our next Triadfoodies Chef’s Table

Happy 2018, foodies! I hope your Christmas was spectacular and warm and loving and we’re excited about the year of food ahead of us.

We’re celebrating a brand new year with a fun and new Chef’s Table at a recent favorite, Vin205 Farm to Table Bistro. We loved how Chef Oren Feuerberg dazzled us with family-style deliciousness this past fall. Read about that here! Owner Caleb Flint wanted to have us back to enjoy a bubbly brunch on Sunday, January 21 at 12:30pm. 

Let me tell you, Caleb knows how to throw a party. And he’s excited to share some bubbles with you and Oren is ready to bring it and show you why Vin205 is the place to be for brunch.  Not only that, but a great coffee bar for a yummy coffee concoction and a few other New Year surprises are up our sparkly sleeves!

Here’s how it works:

Reserve with a ticket here and you’ll join us at our table on Sunday, January 21. A reminder of our pricing: Your ticket price of $30 INCLUDES your multi-course brunch 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. 

Come a little early to enjoy coffee, drinks or do a little shopping at Wine Merchant’s. 


We’ll see you on January 21!

One needs only to look at Chef John’s food photos to know that he loves to work with color, texture and local goodness.  We’re so excited to showcase his talents with multiple tastings at Sophie’s.  His wine dinners always look amazing.

We’re on the Rock & a new Chef’s Table

Foodies!

We have moved.

We have followed our hearts and our dream of living in the absolutely stunning North Carolina mountains. Specifically right up near Banner Elk. And man oh man, is it beee-uuuu-teeee-ful!

And seriously, I’ll explain it all later but the most important thing right now is to let you know that we have jumped right in and we’re kicking off this new journey in life with another Chef’s Table...this one with Chef Sam Ratchford of Vidalia Restaurant and Wine Bar.

I met Chef Sam a few years ago when he walked away with the coveted Red Chef’s Jacket at Competition Dining in Winston-Salem. I’ve eaten at his restaurant too, which is why it’s so obvious that we’d want to inaugural Rockfoodies Chef’s Table to be at Vidalia, where Sam and his wife, Alyce, do classic southern dishes with a twist. And their dedication to local farms is impressive.

Here’s where you can get your tickets! Seating is limited and we look forward to seeing you there!

PS: I promise a blog  post about the move and why we did it and the house that was supposed to be THE house and our kitchen update (which is about to happen, along with getting a pantry) is coming soon!

XOXO

 

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!
