If you must know more about the creator of this blog, you’ve come to the right spot.  Although I think reading the blog itself could probably tell you a good deal about me, there are of course some details you wouldn’t get:

My name is Ben Smith, I’m thirty-something years old, and I live in Raleigh, NC.  I’m blessed to live with my beautiful wife and our charming young daughter, both of whom share my passion for food, cooking, and eating.

I started this blog to provide a resource for those interested in the vibrant food scene of the area in which we live.  From farmer’s markets to great restaurants, the Triangle food scene is thriving.  The blog features restaurant reviews, recipes, and more.

For those interested in dining out in the Triangle, in addition to the reviews of specific restaurants,  I’ve created lists, or databases, of area restaurants that I’ve tried and would like to try.  They are complete with rankings and comments, and can be sorted by cuisine, location, price, etc.  You’ll find the files on “The List” page.  The site also features extensive lists of the area’s food trucks and food blogs.

The food scene is one of the many reasons I love living here, and I want you to enjoy it too!

  1. Hi, I wanted to share our video of a recent train trip we took station to station, Winter Park Fl, to Raleigh NC, two brothers business’s both across the street from Amtrak stations. Ours (Fiction, theirs Videri Chocolate Factory) Its a thing we do called Breakfast At.

    We had Andrew Ullom from Joule Coffee as the mastermind in the kitchen for this. We got to eat dinner there that night as well. We usually go to Pooles when we’re in town which is a favorite as we voted they have THE best mac and cheese…ever.
