Chef Kevin Callaghan and his team at Acme Food & Beverage Co. in Carrboro are pleased to announce that the fifth annual Salt & Smoke Festival will once again return to Rock Quarry Farm in Orange County on Saturday, Nov. 4. Tickets are now on sale.
The event celebrates fall in North Carolina – the food and the sense of community. It includes whole-hog barbecue from Firsthand Foods; oysters on the half shell from Shooting Point Oysters; sides like bourbon mashed sweet potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and hoppin’ John; dessert at the “Smores”gasbord; wine, beer and local whiskey cocktails; and live music.
“Salt & Smoke is about all these rich traditions of the South, turned into a singular celebration,” says Chef Callaghan. “Think of it as your notion of a perfect autumn day. Then multiply that by 10.”
