Explore The Tar Heel State’s best-kept secrets with the Eat & Explore North Carolina Cookbook

The sixth volume in the Eat & Explore State Cookbook Series uncovers everything that makes North Carolina special. Soon, you’ll discover the state’s distinct flavors, exceptional communities, and remarkable destinations.

Vino at the Vineyards

Laurel Gray Vineyards makes for a smooth introduction to North Carolinian tradition. This 400-acre family farm has been part of the Myers family for nearly 250 years. Take a relaxing walk through the pristine vineyards or recline on one of the serene porches. Also choose from eight varieties of Laurel Gray’s own estate-grown French wines, including Chardonnay, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Of course, try the farm’s recipe for Fried Green Olives included in the book. These blue-cheese-stuffed bites of heaven pair perfectly with a glass of the farm’s own Cabernet Franc.

Sky-High Adventures

Amp up the stakes with a visit to Carolina Balloon Adventures in East Bend. You will experience first-hand the wonder of floating above the earth in a hot air balloon. Captain Jack will fly you over the beautiful Yadkin Valley. In fact, you’ll enjoy a bird’s eye view of the rolling hills, native wildlife, winding streams, and expansive ponds. Also spot the hills of Tennessee and Virginia, Pilot Mountain, Hanging Rock, and the skyline of Winston-Salem. Even more, book a dinner flight from a local winery for the perfect romantic weekend getaway. Try the Lemon, Wine, Vinegar Chicken recipe Balloon Adventures has included in the book. This chicken and mushroom stir-fry recipe comes together with its own special sauce flavored with Sauterne wine.

Country Charms

Later, get in touch with North Carolina’s country roots with a stop at Mill Spring Farm Store in Mill Spring. This country store supports local farmers and crafters. Browse fresh, local produce, grass-fed beef, free-range poultry, stream-fed trout, pork, lamb, goat, and even rabbit. Your shopping choices don’t stop at food. Choose from handmade lotions, confections, wood, paper, and fabric crafts. Your next meal awaits you, right next to the beautiful, handcrafted centerpiece destined to decorate your dining room table. While there, pick up the ingredients to make their Chicken Pot Pie recipe.

Classics in Euro Style

Finish your journey through North Carolina with a stop at the Starlight Café in Greenville. The Café is a family-run, neighborhood eatery heavily influenced by European tradition. Pick from an eclectic menu, featuring dishes that are made with fresh, local produce, meats, and cheeses. Pair your meal with a range of wine varieties or a refreshing mixer prepared from fresh fruits and juices. Bring the Café’s classic flavors into your own kitchen with their Shrimp & Grits recipe included in the book. This twist on a coastal classic includes mushrooms, Gruyere cheese, and the juiciest shrimp. You won’t be able to get enough.
