Food Writers Forum at A Southern Season

When I lived in NYC and needed a little mental pick me up from whatever issue troubled me, I often found myself walking into a food or candy shop filled with things I could never afford. When I wanted to celebrate some minor great thing that happened to me, I often found myself walking into a food or candy shop filled with things I could never afford…although occasionally I would spring for some tiny portion and shout a little Woo-Hoo to myself. Sometimes it was Dean & Deluca on Broadway & Prince, “Yes I will take that $5 cupcake”, sometimes it was the Vosges SoHo boutique “Three Taleggio truffles please”, sometimes Maison du Chocolat “One of anything. Please don’t look at me like I’m unclean”.  (FYI, Enduring Wanderlust has a great blog post on the best chocolate shops in NYC, which I totally approve).

Now that I live in Chapel Hill, the food shop where I find solace is A Southern Season. In addition to offering everything from bloody mary mix to Rosenthal and fancy champagne under one roof, they have classes that teach you about how to use all that good stuff. Local noteworthy treasures (Ben and Karen Barker of Magnolia Grill) and visiting experts (Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito of Baked, NYC and Charleston, SC) and celebs teach in a beautifully designed classroom where there isn’t a bad seat in the house.

I screamed a tiny Woo-Hoo this week when I learned about another great class on the calendar this month. Cannot wait to attend the upcoming Food Writer’s Forum on February 19th at 4:00pm. The line-up follows:

Such a treat to hear a few industry stories from these great women. See you on the 19th!

Details: Food Writer’s Forum, February 19, 2011 4:00 PM. $30 per person. Snacks and wine will be served. Event will be held in the classroom at A Southern Season, Hwy 15-501 at South Estes Drive, in the corner of University Mall. For tickets, call (919) 929-7133.
