2014 Food & Wine

In our annual Food & Wine issue, not only do we talk about the tastes of the town, we also feature the flavors that make up what is Fayetteville.
When I sat down with Hanah Ehrenreich, we discussed how Fayetteville did not have a defined “food culture.” San Francisco has sourdough bread. Maryland’s got crabs. Can Fayetteville claim Carolina BBQ? Maybe. I can tell you that Fayetteville does do sushi well.

But perhaps you may not want to go as “local” with your meats as our recurring columnist, Bill. A rabbit scraped off your driveway sounds more Fatal Attraction than appetizing to me. But a certain McFadyen may argue that.

And if you’re “Paleo,” a vegetarian, a carnivore or enjoy very spirited libations, please join us for our 2nd Annual Food & Wine issue Launch Party at Vizcaya Villa on October 9th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Let’s come together and celebrate our local restaurant scene and toast to the
burgeoning Fayetteville flavor!
