And then, for me, the big test – Veal Saltimbocca. When I eat out, I like to order things I seldom make at home as an entrée. It was made right – subtle, not swimming in sauce, tender and slightly saged with a the right amount of prosciutto.
Matt Young, a featured contributor for Food Cary, shares his entire step-by-step process for preparing and smoking eastern NC-style barbecue, from the grocery store to the best sides and sauces for serving time.
A couple of weeks ago, I visited Neighborhood Bottle – Cary’s latest foray in craft beer fun. The Neighborhood Bottle team have set up shop in the location that was formerly Mike’s Used Bookstore on Kildaire Farm Road, beside Trader Joe’s.
So…about the Guinness at Tra’Li – it tasted like Ireland (been there drank that). In the US, Guinness doesn’t always. I had no idea why. I took a sip and said, “Wow.”
On a what ended up being a cool summer night at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, thanks to threatening incoming storms, the U.S. Women’s National Team dominated Switzerland (4-1) for over 90 minutes of play.
Last week, I got to have a nice one-on-one conversation with Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek. The band is playing at Koka Booth in Cary on August 14, 2014.
When country legend Willie Nelson was in town I had to go. It was a plus that I would get to hear the angelic voice of Alison Krauss along with Union Station.

Autumn beers. Like so many things we eat and drink, many of the best beer styles were born out of necessity. Thank you, necessity!
