The Queen City is changing right before our eyes, and the culinary community is leading the charge. HRN’s Caity Moseman Wadler and Kat Johnson sit down for a roundtable discussion about the exciting direction of Charlotte’s foodscape with Kris Reid, the Executive Director of the Piedmont Culinary Guild; Bruce Moffett, the founder of Moffett Restaurant Group; Ashley Boyd of 300 East; and Greg Collier of Uptown Yolk.

The group talks about the unique community that is fostered through the Piedmont Culinary Guild, an invitation-only organization that connects the Food Chain in the Piedmont region of North and South Carolina. The PCG strengthens the local chef and culinary community by sharing resources, educating consumers, and establishing regional recognition.

They also share insights on the evolving palate of the city and predictions for the future – from the rise of neighborhood restaurants and the city’s growing food truck scene – to the exciting new produce options at local farmers markets and ability to express the seasons through restaurant menus.
