#OutaboutNC: REGIONAL Grand TASTE 2017 EVENT Ticket Giveaway

No doubt. Southerners like to chow down on some good food. We've been known for our basketball for a long time, but North Carolina is making a name for itself in the culinary world, too.  Each year, we have numerous restaurants and chefs that receive James Beard Award Nominations. That's like the Oscars for the food industry for those who may be wondering "James Who?"

Food at Grand Taste Experience in Durham, NC

North Carolina is a top agriculture state, and our local chefs get down to our amazing roots. They source seasonal, local ingredients. These chefs are creative and innovative with the merging of flavors from ingredients. As a tourism state with both the mountains and the coast, dining is not about just getting something to eat. Instead, it's a tasting and cultural experience.

TOPO Organic Spirits Crafting Cocktails for TASTE Event in Durham

Each year, North Carolina celebrates the food experience through a four-day food festival in Durham, N.C with portions of the ticket sales going to charity.  It's now in its fourth year and TASTE 2017 will be the biggest yet with the Regional Taste event that will include Southern chefs, food and beverage outside of the Raleigh-Durham and Chapel Hill area.
