Monday, August 17

Charlotte’s growing restaurant scene has some rising star chefs from here and elsewhere and many of those chefs concentrate on serving only local food. Doing so doesn’t necessarily make it easy or even economical but these chefs believe local food sets them apart – and makes what they serve special. We meet three of those chefs and find out why local food is so important to them and what it allows them to do.

Guests
Chef Paul Verica -
owner of Heritage restaurant in Waxhaw

Chef Chris Coleman - Executive Chef at the Asbury Restaurant in the Dunhill Hotel 

Chef Clark Barlow - owner of Heirloom Restaurant in Charlotte
