It’s been a while since I’ve posted a round-up of upcoming foodie events and news for us Triangulars (yes, I have decided I like Triangulars best out of the options of what to call us residents of the NC Triangle). I’ve got a backlog of emails on tasty, delicious possibilities in the next few weeks, so it’s definitely time to let you all know about them! Here we go:
The Cookery has launched a series of culinary workshops that are being led by a mix of locals, some professionals, some not. They cover a wide range of topics, including one tonight by Rue Cler’s Chef de Cuisine, Aaron Benjamin, on shopping for meat locally and how to use everything the whole animal offers–sorry, it’s sold out already! Other upcoming classes include the Triangle Raw Foodists giving tips on how to create vegan sushi rolls (9/15) and Bull City Burger and Brew’s Luke Studer showing us how to home brew all-grain beers (9/29, 10/1). Prices range from $40 to $65. Classes are small and look to be selling out fast, so jump on it if you want in on some hands-on cooking experiences with these fine folks.
Local Yogurt has expanded to mobile operations with their LoYo on the Go! truck that’s making the Durham rounds. They offer four flavors and over 30 toppings on the truck, and of course, it provides the same emphasis on local ingredients as their brick and mortar shop.by
