If you didn’t come to Salute! the North Carolina Wine Festival yesterday, you missed a treat. Lots of great wine out there, but I was able to catch three of the five “Food and Wine University” presentations and even got to emcee the last one with Chef Tirra Cowan from Black Mountain Chocolate. The food in those presentations were great. It’s always hard because there’s a selection process where you look for things under your seat or on recipe cards you get, or whatever. There was enough after the select few with Chef Travis Myers, I got a star on my recipe card and then I got a full portion of the chocolate torte that Tirra made. Great stuff. If you didn’t get there, make sure you go next year!

Also, The BCPF and I got to spend some time with The Less Desirables‘ “Superfan Damien” who was volunteering with Starrlight Mead and then we had dinner with him, his wife and their daughter at TLD’s Official Seafood Sponsor, King’s Crab Shack & Oyster Bar. Good times, indeed.
