Bluegrass Flavors and Feel  10/22/11

Food and Wine, one of the best food magazine with an accessibly gourmet tone, seems to love our fair city. 

Last year it published a piece of our formidable, locally produced goat cheese, Sapori d’Italia…

…and this past month it showcased two individuals who have raised the bar on the Lexington eating scene:  “Market Visionaries” Andrea Sims and Krim Boughalem…

The piece describes their culinary trajectory from wonderful Wine + Market (aka W+M), a grocery that specializes in wine, cheese and a variety of local items, to a bistro called Table 310 with phenomenal bartenders and magical small plates, to the future:

“Now they're turning an old Pepsi factory into Provisions, an 8,000-square-foot space with a butcher, fishmonger, cheese counter (made with marble salvaged from the city's courthouse), bakery, wine shop, brewery and restaurant.”

But, as is always the case with web surfing, one thing leads to another, and before you know it you have stumbled upon a find.

In this case, it was a post by Stella Parks, hometown baker extraordinaire whose exceptional cookies—think homemade Oreos—appear frequently on the shelves and in the display cases at W+M, and whose magical desserts always make a visit to Table 310 somewhat revelatory.

Keep up with her and her friends—and Lexington’s sweetest treats—at her blog:

…and/or make one of her spectacular recipes for yourself:

Update 11/7/11:  Ms. Parks recently posted a brilliant piece about red velvet cake on Gilt Taste, an online magazine and market for food and wine lovers under the editorial advisorship of Ruth Reichl:
