Uptown Charlotte is bulging with national corporate & celebrity restaurants. Yeah yeah…you can eat at any of them in most cities across the country. However, have you ever really gotten to know what they are all about? Did you ever know their specialty may not be what you think? Do you get to go into the kitchen and have the chef give you a cooking demonstration? On the Uptown Chic Behind-the-Scenes Walking Food Tour, we will go in-depth with Executive Chefs and General Managers to learn the restaurant’s history, see cooking demonstrations, tour some kitchens, get wine pairing advice, and sample their undiscovered specialties.
I do not typically like the title of “foodie”, but when foodies are described as wanting to learn everything about food, learn about the history, industry, and other’s personal passions surrounding food…then, I guess, I am a foodie. I jumped into the hospitality industry working at two Charlotte inns. The inns also hosted events and meetings and I quickly found myself on the path of booking and planning weddings, corporate meetings, and other special events. After 5.5 years, I moved to one of the newest upscale hotels in Charlotte where I continued event planning for 9+ more years. Working for a hotel also helped satisfy my travel bug! My years in the events industry working with great chefs and food & beverage directors along with traveling the world finding culinary treasures tapped my true passion for all things food and beverage!
