Recently, I stopped by a friends house at the beach just before a summer dinner party! She had a crab soup tureen full of sunflower as the centerpiece! I loved it! It was such a great tablescape I wanted to share it with you!
Fresh from Willis Seafood Market and Quin's Produce at The Friendly Market! Yummy Shrimp and Squash fritters made this dinner party a big hit full of local flavor!
Last week I had the pleasure attending Chef Camp with kids from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Coastal Carolina! The very talented East Carteret High School Teacher, Susan Way was our host! She did an awesome job with the camp! I loved seeing the kids faces light up as they cooked and even cleaned! The kids worked so well together in four groups!
The kids loved learning to cook and eating what they prepared! They are begging to attend again next summer! What a great group of kids! I am looking forward to volunteering again! I learned just as much as the kids!
I suggest you start with a drink from the Rhum bar and an app to die for! Scallops served over corn relish! I hope this dish is a special when you visit! They also have a great wine list!
My husband and my Dad's all time favorite is the crab cake and filet! It does not get much better than this although if you ask me the baked oysters are the perfect start! My Mother votes for the grouper and the goat cheese salad! I guess this is a dead give away that everything on the menu is yummy! Like us, this will be a frequent summer night!
I want to thank you for the emails while I was away! I had no idea I would be missed! I did miss sharing all the North Carolina summer fun with you! As wonderful as technology is, it is not fun when a blogger has computer troubles! I went back to using a desk top for my day job but had to take a little break from SSCS! I will pick up where I left off! Below is a photo from Chefs 105 in Morehead City! It was a nice night for dinner outside and a bottle of Decoy! The sky was so pretty and the charter boats had flags flying representing a successful day off the NC Coast!
I hope everyone has a chance to enjoy the sticky NC salt air and soak in a "little" vitamin D before the season is over!!
