Piedmont Culinary Guild is a 501 C3 non-profit organization founded on the principle idea that sharing resources and promoting educational opportunities can help develop and secure our local food system. We are committed to sharing our strengths and building our local food economy.
TODAY!!! Join us at Lenny Boy Brewing Company on Sunday, October 30 to see who’s the best pumpkin carver in the area.
Once again, Piedmont Culinary Guild is bringing together the area’s best chefs, farmers, mixologists, food artisans, food educators, and other culinary professionals to see who is the best pumpkin carver in the region!
You will vote to see who gets the title of CARVED 2016 Champion! A full slate of farming demos, games, raffles, and other surprises make this day fun for the whole family!
If you are a farmer or gardener, your mailbox has started receiving its annual pilgrimage of seed catalogs. It can get more than a little confusing. Understanding these terms will help you make important decisions about the varieties of seeds you select and the seed companies you support.
Dine to your heart’s content and still support local farmers, provisioners, and food artisans. Twenty Piedmont Culinary Guild members, representing sixteen local restaurants, are participating in Queen’s Feast – Winter 2017. Three courses for $30.00 / $35.00 (plus, tax/tip). There’s no better bang for your dining out buck.
