I love Fourth of July weekend, but if I don’t see another hot dog or hamburger for a month, I’ll be a happy camper. Ditto that on pasta salad, potato salad and deviled eggs.
Well, I guess I could always force down a couple of deviled eggs.
If you’re like me and are ready to move on to more exotic flavors, perhaps this news is for you: Doreen Sidor, a personal chef who formerly taught cooking classes at Twist & Turns in downtown Roanoke, has opened up her own restaurant at 4210 Brambleton Avenue called Doreen’s Gourmet (in the former High Point Coffee building).
Not only does Doreen plan to sell gourmet meals to go, sandwiches, salads, coffee and tea, smoothies and more, she also wants to continue having cooking classes from time to time in her new kitchen. Keep an eye on our Foodie Calendar in each Thursday’s Inside Out for details about those classes.
Doreen is having an Grand Opening celebration at her new restaurant tomorrow and Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event will feature free wine tastings from Valhalla Vineyards, free gourmet food samples and live music!
I’m betting there will be no hot dogs on the menu…
