Links for the beginning of June


A hodgepodge of links that’ve caught my eye.

Help my favorite NC chefs:

Longtime readers of this blog know how much I adored my visit to stone circles at The Stone House, a retreat space (and so much more) in Mebane, NC. When I rave about my experience there, the food is always front and center. I even had the chance to serve as a recipe tester for their forthcoming cookbook!

Now my friends there are down to the wire, with just 37 hours left in their fundraising campaign to build a new, state-of-the-art kitchen. As my friend Heidi eloquently put it:

The kitchen, as it exists, has nourished my body, spirit, mind and heart. If that matters to you, give, even $1. The kitchen as it WILL exist will be able to do that for SO many more people. I know there are a lot of places to put your money, please consider this a GREAT one. Thanks!

Here’s the link to their indiegogo campaign. Thanks for considering this!
