Welcome to our annual Food and Wine issue, full of treats for the eyes, ears (yes!) and stomach.
We have food for thought, too.
It’s a treat for me to be part of this. I’m brand-new to CityView – hi! – but I’ve lived in Fayetteville for 24 years and spent 23 of those years writing for The Fayetteville Observer. So I know a bit about the city and guess what: I like it here. There are lots of great people, great places and great things to do in and around Fayetteville and I’m happy to be part of a publication that’s dedicated to sharing and showcasing those stories.
I’ve met a lot of you over the years and I look forward to meeting many more of you going forward. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think there’s something we should know about. I can’t promise we’ll get to everything but we’ll definitely give it thought.
Back to this issue: One of the pleasures of being CityView’s editor is getting to go with ace photographer Matthew Wonderly when he takes pictures that accompany our stories. So I got to see the cool art at Cape Fear Vineyard and Winery in Elizabethtown, I got to hear the talented Kia Walker play her blue violin and also sing and I got to taste a bit of the beautiful produce from Sandhills Farm to Table’s packing site in Whispering Pines. I hope you’ll enjoy reading these stories and the others. Dig in!
