We had a blast at our third annual Grand TASTE Experience at the Durham Armory. Chefs from Gocciolina, The Durham Hotel, the Washington Duke Inn, Crook’s Corner, Piedmont, Mateo and many other restaurants offered samples, as did artisan food makers like Big Spoon Roasters, La Farm Bakery and Brood Soda. Plus, there was plenty of beer, wine and spirits, and it was all set to a live soundtrack thanks to the Mint Julep Jazz Band!
