North Carolina For Teens Example Full Itinerary

North Carolina For Teens Example Full Itinerary


Taste the Adventure in North Carolina began back in 2007 and was inspired by our family travels and C’est si Bon! led trips to both France and Italy. As we went to lavender fields and honey orchards, perused marketplaces of warm tomatoes, apricots and cheeses; I marveled that we already lived in a rich and bountiful land back home in North Carolina.

And to be sure in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, and Hillsborough, where we could easily find all these artisanal products, farmers, chefs, cheese makers, and devoted artisans. And so I began to explore the idea of putting together a week of bounty with such excursions coupled with staying at a real working farm, with cooking classes both out in the community and at CSB! And a look at what goes into getting a very tasty Carolina, on your plate!

We hope you enjoy this week and leave us inspired to find your place at the table. Perhaps with a career in the culinary world. Or perhaps just to enrich your life. So pass the plate – share – and always nourish yourself with people, verdant land and good food.
