Chilled Asparagus Salad in the Best Chapel Hill Restaurant

Kickoff the summer season with a tasty, healthy salad. Executive Chef James Clark, of Carolina Crossroads Restaurant, makes this delightful chilled asparagus salad with baby frisée, spring onions, quail eggs, garden-fresh herbs and homemade "jar dressing." Each bite brings out a different combination of ingredients. So, get to your local farmers’ market and handpick local produce to create this delicious and satisfying salad. It’s the perfect accompaniment to any summer supper. Ingredients 12 Jumbo Asparagus 2 Heads Baby Frisee 12 Spring Onions 4 Tbs. Sugar 1 C. Cider Vinegar 2 Tbs. Pickling Spice 2 Sprigs of Thyme 4 Quail Eggs 2 Qt. & 2 C. Water 3 Tbs. Salt 1 Tbs. Olive Oil Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper to Taste Directions Put 2 qts. of water on the stove and add the 3 tbs. of salt and bring to a simmer. In a separate pot, add the sugar, vinegar, thyme and pickling spice and bring to a simmer.  While both pots are heating both up, trim Asparagus and peel way the woodsy skin which is about mid may down the stalk, rinse, and set aside. Next, take the Ramps and trim and discard the root. Then separate the bulbs from the green leaves and rinse. Keep separate and set aside.  Once your salted water is simmering (have an ice bath ready), drop in the Ramp bulbs. Poach for 2 minutes. Pull out of the water allow to drain and place them in a small no reactive bowl and pour the vinegar pickling liquid over the Ramp bulbs. Immediately cover and place into the refrigerator. This can be done several days in advance. Next simmer Asparagus for 2 minutes. Pull out and submerge in ice bath. Do not oversoak. Once cooled place asparagus on a towel to dry. Repeat this process with the Ramp leaves and set aside. You will be adding the leaves to the dressing.  Trim the dark green off the Frisee down to where it turns light green to white, cut the root end, then wash and dry.  To cook the eggs, heat olive oil in a small nonstick pan. Once hot, gently crack the quail egg and allow to cook until the egg white has cooked through. Serve sunnyside up. Jar Dressing 1 Tbs. Tarragon ~ Sliced 1 Tbs. Basil ~ Sliced 1 Tbs. Flat Leaf Parsley 1 Shallot ~ Diced 2 Cloves Garlic ~ Minced 2 Scallions ~ Grilled & Minced 1 Tbs. Dijon Mustard 1 Tbs. Capers ~ Chopped ½ Red Pepper ~ Diced Small ¼ C.

Bon Appétit!

North Carolina Moonshine Tasting in Chapel Hill

This past Saturday, 6/14th we held our first-ever moonshine tasting. Well received by the Chapel Hill, N.C. community, 65 attendees rallied on the Front Porch of The Carolina Inn. The day was ideal for this sold out event. The weather was absolutely perfect – gentle breeze, lots of shade, and stunning Carolina blue skies. With bluegrass music playing in the background, you could hear the sounds of mason jars (filled with moonshine of course) clinking as guests made their toasts. Made available to the attendees included a variety of moonshine. TOPO Organic Carolina Moonshine, Troy & Sons Moonshine, Broadslab Legacy Shine, Junior Johnson’s Midnight Moon, Howling Moon Moonshine and Catdaddy Carolina Moonshine were all available for sampling. Also served was Crossroads’ delicious culinary delights paired perfectly with the North Carolinian moonshine that was offered. Guests enjoyed Southern favorites such as Seared Pork Belly, BBQ Beef Short Rib on a Biscuit, and Braised Pork Cheeks just to name a few. Our celebrity guest, Moonshiner Wayne, from the Discovery Channel’s TV Show “Moonshiners” was on-site meeting his fans, and answering their questions. Also known as “Hill Billy,” Wayne brought his very own still and an oversized backdrop of his still located in the backwoods of North Carolina. Guests had big smiles as they posed for pictures in front of it with the Moonshiner. Even the Chapel Hill Fire Department made a surprise visit to the tasting as they, too, wanted their picture taken with Wayne. Here’s to another fun and unique event held in downtown Chapel Hill at The Carolina Inn. Cheers!

Wedding Memories for a Lifetime

Excellence, elegance, comfort, outstanding service, luxurious accommodations, delicious food, and flexibility are the hallmarks that best describe our recent experience at the historic Carolina Inn. Under the outstanding direction of Melissa Sayre, Social Catering Manager, our daughter's wedding exceeded our expectations in execution and happiness. Every detail was handled with personalized care and exactly as planned. Even when our guest list grew from 90 to 206, Melissa and her staff met our every concern with no problem, we can handle it. And they did, always with a smile and great creativity. Each meal, including the beautiful reception dinner, was well-prepared, perfectly served, and delectable. The entire staff was attentive, detail oriented, and focused on making us feel that our daughter's wedding was the most important event to ever occur at The Carolina Inn. More than 100 of our family members and friends stayed onsite for several nights. We heard significant praise from our guests regarding a most memorable experience, the wonderfully comfortable beds, and a desire to return to the Inn for their own vacations and special events. Thank you to The Carolina Inn and Melissa Sayre for making our daughter's and new son's dream wedding a reality and helping to create memories that will last a lifetime.
