The Science of Eats: An excuse to play with your food

Posted By on Fri, Feb 21, 2014 at 12:03 PM

If you've ever wanted to see adults play with their food like 3-year-olds, then you might have attended The Science of Eats at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham Thursday night. Here food lovers and science geeks learned about enzymes that neutralize the lactose in milk; the mysteries of Maltodextrin and the protein content of a tarantula, which, pound for pound, is greater than that in hamburger. You just have to get past the idea you're eating an hairy arachnid. Read more about the event in next week's print edition of the INDY. ...

James Beard nominees include eight Triangle restaurateurs

Posted By on Wed, Feb 19, 2014 at 3:12 PM

Giorgios Bakatsias was caught off-guard when a longtime employee called to congratulate him this morning. “It’s a great honor and I didn’t expect it at all,” says Bakatsias, who learned from Vin Rouge General Manager Michael Maller that the James Beard Foundation had nominated him in a national category as Outstanding Restaurateur. “I take the moment to be truly overjoyed and grateful,” Bakatsias adds. “At the same time, the credit goes to the people around me. We have a great team.” Giorgios Hospitality Group owns several popular and critically lauded restaurants in the Triangle. The group includes Bin 54,...

SnOMG! Time to make snow cream

Posted By on Thu, Feb 13, 2014 at 3:10 PM

Cabin fever due to snow is a rare, practically once-in-a-decade experience for us in the Triangle. But with minimal effort and ingredients from your pantry, you can turn your winter blues into a bowl of creamy snow cream. The recipe for this simple treat is very forgiving, so don’t feel like to you need to risk an icy drive or sloshy hike to a store. I happened to have half-and-half in the fridge, but you also can use regular milk or, better still, condensed milk you’ve had in the cupboard for the pie you forgot to bake at Thanksgiving....

Blind Pig underground supper club arrives in Raleigh

Posted By on Wed, Feb 12, 2014 at 9:11 AM

It takes a good bit of faith to drop $85 on a dinner ticket without knowing the menu or location, but the Blind Pig underground supper club has held two dinners in Raleigh in the past month and both sold out fast. The Blind Pig is an Asheville institution that brings together area chefs to prepare a multi-course menu for more than 100 guests. Proceeds benefit local charities, and the events have been so successful it’s likely the mountain tradition will catch on here in the capital. I called my source Sunday afternoon (ticket holders receive an email) and he...

The Cupcake Bar accepts the Bull City Vegan Challenge

Posted By on Wed, Feb 12, 2014 at 9:05 AM

When you bite into a vegan s’more cupcake from the Cupcake Bar, remember it took two weeks to perfect that marshmallow. One recent morning, owner Anna Branly wielded a miniature torch over a tray of square marshmallows, toasting them to an optimal color of copper. When finished, these egg- and dairy-free sugar bombs will land atop vegan s’mores cupcakes, the bakery’s dessert entry in this month’s Bull City Vegan Challenge. The Cupcake Bar sells vegan versions every Saturday, but for the challenge, they will be available every day. The frosting is made with a vegan butter substitute, but Branley says,...

Celebrating Lowcountry cuisine with Jay Pierce of Lucky 32

Posted By on Tue, Feb 4, 2014 at 4:35 PM

A distinguished group of academics, chefs and farmers converged last Friday to both examine the foundations of South Carolina’s Lowcountry cuisine and celebrate its sustainable resurgence during the Atlantic Foodways Conference at UNC Greensboro. This was the first year that the annual conference —which also examined the native foodways and transatlantic impact of Italy, France and Spain—featured high-profile chefs who are influencing contemporary cuisine through their commitment to restore fading traditions. The Lowcountry was ably represented by Sean Brock of Charleston’s acclaimed Husk and McGrady’s restaurants. “I’ve been lucky enough to watch and be part of the rebirth of...
