durham nc: Love It AND List It - 11/23/15 02:42 AM
It is with mixed emotions that I tell the world wide web that my house in Durham, NC is now for sale. The house that I have poured emotions and capital into over the last 6.5 years is the only one that I thought I would own while my wife studies at Duke University.
218 East Knox Street, Durham, NC 27701  is a house that has changed significantly over my family's time living in it. It is a small house (1260 square feet), and we are a family of four humans, one dog, and two cats, but that is not what moved … (3 comments)

durham nc: Miel Bon Bons - Durham, NC's Local Truffles! - 08/05/15 05:22 AM
Here in Durham, NC (The South's Tastiest Town), we have so many incredible breweries, restaurants, places for desserts, and bakeries that we are certainly a destination  for localvores and culinary aficionados the world over. Such places for delectables often steal the spotlight from Durham's other great attractions.
Nestled in a building in the Rockwood neighborhood next to Nana's is the amazing Miel Bon Bons. Behind an unassuming glass door, next to a dentist's office, is a fantastic shop of earthly delights. There, you'll see the proprietor, Bonnie Lau, practicing her art of chocolateering.
I found her shop … (21 comments)

durham nc: Rose's Meat Market and Sweet Shop - 11/05/14 01:22 AM
The restaurants that exist in Durham, NC are award-winning, but new ones continue to be created here in the Bull City. One of the latest and greatest is Rose's Meat Market and Sweet Shop that began last year, much to Durham locavores' delight.
While the Meats portion of the store does traffic in pork, beef, lamb, chicken, sausages, bacons, and hamburgers that are purchased whole from nearby farms, and is legendary in its own right. But, the real attraction to me is the Sweet section.
Check out the image below to see if your tastebuds begin to water as well. If … (0 comments)

durham nc: The Parlour-One of America's best new ice cream shops! - 07/11/14 12:53 AM
Durham, NC has been getting more than its fair share of good press in the past several years for good reason. The most recent article that informs the world how wonderful this town and its offerings are is an article from CNN: http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2014/07/08/best-new-ice-cream-shops/
I was first introduced to The Parlour several years ago when they were only a food truck in the pantheon Durham's excellent food truck scene. As a life-long ice cream lover, I was truly impressed with the artisinally created flavors that The Parlour creates (Orange Ginger Sorbet, Coconut Mocha, Salted Butter Caramel, Summer Corn, Blackberry, Honey Lavender, and … (1 comments)

durham nc: Saltbox Seafood Joint - Durham, NC - 09/03/13 03:26 AM
Durham has recently received the accolade as being the Tastiest Town in the South presented by Southern Living magazine. While the article lists several seminal restaurants here in the Bull City, it does have at least one significant oversight.

Saltbox Seafood Joint is a tasty fish joint that offers fresh from the coast fish ("local fish, freshly cooked") that the proprietor orders from a fish cooperative in Durham called Walking-Fish. That company is based on the concept of a CSA (community-supported agriculture), and twists that a bit to create a CSF (community-supported fishery). The restaurant opens at 11:00 … (2 comments)

Hey everybody, have you heard? Durham, North Carolina has been awarded the title of the Tastiest Town in the South by Southern Living! Next month's magazine will have a section more focused on our delicatable eateries, but here is a taste of what will be offered.
I have only lived here since 2009, but I have been greatly impressed with the amount of new restaurants and offerings that have been made available in Durham. The local restaurants are worth traveling long and far for, the food truck movement has greatly blossomed, and just hanging around downtown Durham is exciting in its … (0 comments)
