Almost Earth Day

What better way to celebrate Earth Day (officially tomorrow, Wednesday, April 22, 2015) than by supporting a local farmer's market?

Grow Your Best Tomato Crop Ever

If you garden, you’re undoubtedly excited that our average frost date has passed - timed with taxes, why is that? - and you can safely start installing those summer crop seedlings in your backyard garden. Like many Americans, you’ll probably be growing at least several types of tomatoes, because after all nothing packs as much flavor as eating a ripened tomato off the vine, can be served in so many different ways and is hefty enough to be the mainstay of a meal. How to have better... Full Post >

John Westmoreland is the talented Chatham County artist who is playing jazz and classical music at The Granary on Monday & Tuesday evenings. We are excited to share a little more about Westmoreland and his love of music! What prompted your love of music?

Littorai: Above the Best, In a World of Its Own

Let's just say it, there are a lot of wineries that claim that they are the best (in their region, of all producers, of a certain grape varietal, etc). The idea of "the best" is, as I think we can all agree, largely subjective. Now, when we talk of a wine which is in and of itself completely different than anything else, I think that the classification "the best" no longer does that wine justice. How can you compare a wine so unique to others? When I speak about the wines of Ted Lemon from his... Full Post >

Giving Back with Gingerbread

For the 12th annual gingerbread benefit for Triangle Family Services, Fearrington's pastry chefs crafted a miniature replica of The Fearrington House Restaurant, made entirely of gingerbread course! This beautifully detailed sweet creation placed third in the contest and helped raise money that will assist local families in crisis. So, how do you build a farmhouse of gingerbread? First measure and make a plan. Then bake up all of the pieces. Yes, shutters, doors, columns, shingles... Full Post >

Being Creative with Fullsteam

Food, beer, wine, restaurants, service, music, painting, sculpting -- what do all of these have in common? Creativity and imagination! Some are individualistic expressions and some are joint, or better, collaborative expressions. The teamwork and creativity that goes into restaurants is something that when working well, should go unnoticed, it should feel natural. In our second year collaborating with Sean Lilly Wilson and Fullsteam Brewery I feel that natural mutual creative energy in... Full Post >
