The Culinary Village is always a fun time! It’s like a huge party with some of the best food, drinks and culinary talent the southeast has to offer.

This year we were able to catch a few of our favorite chefs from Raleigh. Colleen Speaks from Hummingbird was grilling some Octopus and Ashley Christensen was live on the main stage.

This year there was a new patio area sponsored by Toyota. You can pick up a silk screened bag. You can even create your very own rib rub or get your own personalized spatula, that is printed in the back of a Toyota. They created a really cool hands on experience! Well done.

The best thing we had to eat was an ice cream macaroon cake pop sandwich. It was pretty amazing. I also loved the Rose garden. It was so pretty with all the bubbly!

Cheers to a great time at the Culinary Village.
