The Levine Museum of the New South and Pinehurst Resort hosted Taste of the New South last night at the Levine Museum. The resort went all out providing endless amounts of food, free massages, great decor, and even Vera Bradley cosmetic bag gifts for all the guests.
The 11+ food stations, live music, open bar, and museum displays had me in sensory-overload mode. The multitude of food stations cooked up Southern delicacies such as Stone Ground Grits with Foie Gra and Tarheel Pie. See the entire menu here.
The best dish (in my opinion) was the BBQ Pulled Pork served on a crispy wonton wrapper with brie cheese and a cherry jam-type topping. The best dessert was the Almond Financier with Flambé Strawberries, Strawberry-Balsamic Sorbet and Balsamic Syrup. Needless to say, I ate myself into a tizzy and fell asleep almost immediately after returning home.
