Our first treat was making biscuits with Lillie over in Vivian's Test Kitchen. Three volunteers from the crowd under Lillie's supervision made biscuits using Lillie's recipe. As an hors d'oeuvre before dinner (in the south where I grew up, the noon meal was called dinner and the evening meal was called supper) we had a taste of biscuit with various kinds of jams and preserves.

The four at our table shared Vivian's Party Magnet with Mimosas served from the bar.

Vivian Howard is bringing Kinston back to life! The Chef and The Farmer is as outstanding as the superb reviews it has garnered and awards it has won! I'll be back.
This event sponsored by Walter Magazine was a day long event, so I will be posting a second blog later about our afternoon and evening fun. Stay tuned.
