It’s so hot in North Carolina that I’m fleeing to Canada. Seriously. OK, so the trip was already planned. I hope to check out a few farms around Montreal and of course sample some farm-to-table fare. I haven’t done my research yet!
Meanwhile, I’ll be coming back just in time to judge the semifinals of Fire in the Triangle, the hot new chef competition series in our fair state. I cannot wait! I was thrilled to see all events sell out, not that I was surprised. Unfortunately I’ve been traveling more than home since the contest started and haven’t been able to make one of them. Very disappointing. But you can bet I’ll be there July 23 for my judgeship. Because it’s the semifinals, we don’t yet know who the competing chefs will be. So exciting!
