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!
On an unseasonably warm Halloween Eve, the back room at Lenny Boy Brewing Co. was full of knife, saw, and Dremel-wiedling chefs, farmers, mixologists, and other local culinary luminaries all focused on creating a sea of carved pumpkin masterpieces. Carved 2016 was underway! In the end, Chef Ashley Boyd of 300 East and her pirate-carving teammate Candy May garnered most votes and was named Carved 2016 champion!
Townes Mozer has had a rough weekend. On this Monday afternoon in mid-September his usually forceful gaze is a bit hazy, his green eyes red-rimmed. Inside the cavernous taproom of Lenny Boy’s new South Tryon location, the Charlottte native sits at the long shiny bar and rubs his stubbled face. He’s trying to recall specific dates from his career, emerging from pizza-chomping college student to the Queen City’s king of kombucha.
