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!

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!
