Well, this was a pleasant thing to wake up to today!

Through an online voting process, Durham beat out a bevy of very qualified towns for the 2013 crown, including:

  • Asheville, NC
  • Memphis, TN
  • New Orleans, LA
  • Atlanta, GA

Perhaps why I love food down here so much is that Durhamites embrace simple food, things without much pretense but the ability to be elevated from the ordinary to the sublime.

With a reverence for life’s everyday pleasures (we’re talking coffee, beer, pizza, and pie here), a passionate mix of chefs, farmers, brewers, bakers, and baristas have quietly transformed Durham into one of the hottest food destinations in the South.

The short article can be found here, and just scratches the surface with some of the great stuff we have in Durham. Enjoy, and congrats again, Durham! Another reason why I’m proud to live here.
