LINK: TinyTestKitchen.com’s Warm Goat Cheese & Pickled Pepper Salad

My brother just told me about, TinyTestKitchen.com, a blog that is run by a couple he knows from college and shared the link with me. I clicked on the about section on the blog and realized that I had met Vienna and Craig when I went up to New York City for a sports blogging conference called  Blogs with Balls: 1.0 back in June. We had talked about how much the both of us enjoyed cooking and how she wanted to set up a blog to start documenting her recipes and culinary experiments.

Check out Vienna and Craig’s recipe for a warm goat cheese & pickled pepper salad.

LINK: Mod Meals on Mendenhall’s Single-Life S&P Salmon

Here is a post by my friend, Cecelia, over at Mod Meals on Mendenhall which is a great foodie blog in Greensboro, NC. She has a simple recipe for a single serving of salmon, snow peas and her “Smashed Lemon Potatoes”. We all know how tough it is to cook just one portion of a meal but Cecelia really knocks it out of the park with this one. Definitely check out her blog and follow her on Twitter: @ModonMendenhall

LINK: Eat It, Atlanta’s Momofuku Chicken Wings

Check out this great post from Jimmy over at EatItAtlanta.com about his experience trying to recreate the Momofuku chicken wings from the Momofuku cookbook. It seems like a lot of work but the end results seem worth it (especially if you have a bunch of people kickin’ it at your house for a football game or something like that).

I borrowed the name for my blog from Jimmy because it might be one of the single greatest names for a blog and thought I could bring some North Carolina flavor to it. We will be featuring links to a bunch of Jimmy’s great recipes and experiments over on Eat It, Atlanta so stay tuned.

Bin 33: Beer & Food Tasting

all pictures from Bin 33’s Facebook Fan page

Bin 33 is my favorite restaurant in Greensboro right now but it hasn’t even opened yet. I haven’t walked through the door but I am completely enthralled with it. How could this be? Well…this past Sunday, Bin 33 held a beer and food tasting at Boston’s House of Jazz & Blues on Edgeworth Street next to the Newbridge Bank Park near downtown Greensboro.

They began promoting the event using the big two social media sites out there right now  (Twitter and Facebook) and ran a contest to see who would be able to bring a group of friends to the tasting. The response was so big that they just decided to make it an open party to anyone that had heard about it through their social media promotion or word of mouth.

As we walked up the event, we were welcomed by a young woman who was taking down information about guests on an iPad. It was as quick and painless of a sign-in as I have seen at an event like this and didn’t require anything other than saying an e-mail address and your first name. We were handed a fancy slip of paper (below) and a pencil to write down which of the five beers was our favorite as well as comments about the individual beers.

Welcome to…Eat It, North Carolina!

I am a 25 year old guy who lives in Greensboro, NC. I have been doing an array of blogging over the past few years covering stuff like sports, music and entertainment but thought that I would try my hand at a foodie blog because I consider myself an expert on the subject.

Over the past few years, I have made a conscious effort to begin to try new foods, recipes, restaurants and about anything else that will get me out of the corporate American box of chain restaurants that really only want your money and don’t give a rat’s ass about you or your taste buds.

The majority of the stuff that I will focus on for Eat It, North Carolina at the beginning will be from the Triad region (Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point) of North Carolina but I travel all around the state to see live music (which I am hoping to review some shows over at my other new site, DigitalRecordStore.com) and will be checking out a lot of restaurants all over.

If you have any specific recommendations for recipes, restaurants, food festivals or anything else, shoot me an e-mail at EatItNorthCarolina@gmail.com and let me know. I am always game for trying something new. If you live in North Carolina (or just eat here a lot), contact me about writing for the blog.
