People seem to be going nuts about the maple bacon gelato here, but this cup of blueberry was the best thing I ate all week...


Have we mentioned the burger at Bocado in Atlanta? Not too shabby:

What I Learned In Colorado

I learned that they take their jerky seriously that there's a 'Jerky Wagon' near Dillon. Here are a few of our favorites - the Kippered Elk Steak was an especially big hit.

Local Coffee

Thanks to the good people at 1000 Faces Coffee in Athens, GA for sending over a bag of El Bambito...this may be the new house coffee for the Green Olive Atlanta office.

Oxford American 2010 Southern Food Issue

The Oxford American has outdone themselves with this year's southern food issue...set aside several hours to read this one, as I had trouble not reading the whole thing at one sitting. They also outdid themselves at the launch party in Charleston this weekend, serving plenty of Pappy Van Winkle 15-year bourbon at Billy Reid's store...

Thanks Dad!

Scott's Variety Store & BBQ - Hemingway, SC

I was lucky enough to experience the best whole hog BBQ I've ever had this weekend - courtesy of my new hero, Rodney Scott, of Scott's Variety Store in Hemingway, SC. Our man John T. Edge has already done a better job writing it up than I can - take a few minutes to read this great piece.

Web Design - Vern Yip

We're excited to have launched the website for Vern Yip, star of countless shows on TLC, NBC and HGTV among others...

How It's Done
