The search for the best in North Carolina food and agriculture resumes in prime time Thursday, September 26 on UNC-TV. The “Flavor, NC” team is hitting the road for ten, all new half hour episodes celebrating all things North Carolina food. From a small, artisanal cheese-maker in Buncombe County to a veteran fisherman harvesting soft-shell crabs in Currituck County, “Flavor, NC” searches out the best of Tar Heel agriculture and food.
“Flavor, NC” is the crossroads where the best of homegrown Tar Heel agricultural specialties meet up with the people and places who nurture that bounty. Host Lisa Prince criss-crosses the state getting to know the farmers and food producers who grow, harvest and create our favorite foods.
Boiled Peanut Hummus from Chef Scott Crawford at Herons at the Umstead in Cary? Check.
Grilled Soft Shell Crabs from Chef Chris Braswell at Steamers in Corolla? You bet.
The Fried Collard Sandwich from Chef Rodney Lloyd at Sprout Café in Durham? We got it.
Or maybe Brie and Apple Tartlets from food blogger Cheryl Barnes at Picture Perfect Meals in Jonas Ridge? Absolutely. You’ll find these recipes and more in the all new season of “Flavor, NC”.
“Flavor, NC” premieres at 10:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 26 on UNC-TV with encore airings to follow Saturday mornings at 10:30 a.m. and Sunday afternoons at 1:00 p.m.
