The Magic of Culinary Days

This Saturday we attended our first ever foodie book signing event at the Savory Spice Shop in Charlotte’s South End. We had been looking forward to it for weeks, and by the time the day arrived I was nervous with excitement.

The Shop was all decked out for Valentines Day...

First thing to do… get our book signed by the author Sarah Crosland… a North Carolina native who wrote a book about all the exciting foodie experiences to be had in Charlotte, whether you are in the mood for a sit down meal, want to track down your favorite food truck or get some fresh local ingredients from one of the many markets in town.

Our book in hand it was time look over the spices… I was after the ingredients to make Chai Tea from scratch… I ended up purchasing one of the packets they had already put together… and a spice grinder… every foodie needs one of those…

We looked over the upcoming classes, and selected the Spice 101 class on April 7th. Can't wait to learn more about herbs and spices!

Next we continued our culinary adventures to the Atherton Mills Market…

If we hadn’t had other stops to make I would have bought those carrots… next time…

With all the smells and culinary yumminess… it was time to get some lunch… We enjoyed Zucca Tavern so much the first time we visited this part of Charlotte, that we decided it was time for another visit. It did not disappoint.

Next it was onto Williams-Sonoma where we purchased some culinary tools and had a look around before heading to our last stop for the day Fresh Market.
