Friday Links – December 29, 2017

Is anyone else glad the holidays are over? Fun but exhausting! I am relieved that the year is almost over, but oh so excited that this project is just getting started! I’m excited for the new content coming in 2018! Look for an oyster round up coming after a great visit to UNCW, along with a visit to Black Mountain Ciderworks + Meadery in the weeks ahead! Follow my Instagram to get a sneak peak as to what is coming up soon!

Until then, here are a few things that have caught my eye this week:


The 2017 Tar Heels of the Year are Chef Vivian Howard and Chef Ashley Christensen! (And yes, I love Vivian’s new restaurant located just a few blocks from Drew’s house… and may have already eaten there twice! Check out the photo for my bird’s eye view!)

Looking for the places to eat in the South? Kim Severson gives the 411 for southern foodies on The Whole Hog’s last podcast of the year (hint: NC female chef’s are on the forefront of 2018!)

I’m heading to Winston-Salem the third weekend in January! (Can’t wait to visit here!) Any place else we should check out on this trip? (Interested in this place as well!)

Do you eat collards on New Year’s Day? It’s a southern tradition! Here are a few variations on the traditional!



I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year! See you in 2018!! -Sarah
