It goes like this: If you haven’t used it in a year, get rid of it. Your blender, juicer, cocktail shaker, ice-cream maker. They’re just taking up space you need for other things. 

Baloney, I say.

Operation North State

Several North Carolina food products will be the stars of the show at a drive to collect gift-box goodies for military personnel this Saturday. 

Welcome back to “In Good Taste,” where we explore all things mannerly pertaining to food and how to enjoy it with others. Today our etiquette expert will answer a question she received by private message recently.

I lived in Asheville in the early 2000s, about the same time Rolling Stone named it the “New Freak Capital of the U.S.” There were a lot of freaks back then, with train-hoppers and burnouts sleeping in Pritchard Park and the highest population of dreadlocked didgeridoo players east of Sydney. There were also tourists, especially in fall when hoards of leaf peepers arrived, but most of the year you were more likely to see panhandling gutter punks than Pomeranians in handbags. Not anymore. Even though Asheville’s reputation as weird persists, it’s not really where Dead Heads go to die these days; it’s where yuppies go to eat.

When it comes to fairs I make a bee-line to the food pavilion. No, I don't mean the hot dogs or funnel cakes or cotton candy. I'm talking canned goods - row after row, competing for blue ribbons. 

Though North Carolina's county fairs are finished for the season, there's still the mother of them all coming up - the N.C. State Fair in Raleigh, Oct. 16-21. Nearly $12,000 in "premiums" are up for grabs, some of which will go to the kings and queens of home canning.

Purists be warned: If you can’t stomach the idea of a radical departure from the traditional Rosh Hashanah dinner, stop reading right now. Because this is a story about hot dogs, homemade horseradish vodka, and store-bought cake.

Last summer, I broke up with my grocery store. Our relationship had gone stale, so I started seeing someone new (you can read the story here). 

Now it’s time to confess I wasn’t able make the break-up stick. That’s because the newly remodeled Harris Teeter grocery store on Central Avenue has been cleverly designed to be nearly irresistible.

Confessions of a “Tales” Virgin

Sep 9, 2014

As a part-time bartender, full-time cocktail evangelist and newly minted drinks writer, I thought it was my duty to go and finally experience Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, a week long celebration of spirits, the mixtures they can be served in, and the people who create these wonderful elixirs.
