1.) Ever wonder what happened to Urban Culinary Cuisine on Cross Creek Boulevard? We did, too.
We emailed the former owners awhile back and recently got a response. Here’s what Rose Saxton wrote when we asked about the closure:
It has always been my plan to get the Chef out of the kitchen more and promoting good health - through healthy foods, healthy cooking techniques and healthy relationships. His "Chef's Lectures Series" promotes various aspects of good health by creating a healthy foundation for life thru healthy foods and healthy relationships.
It would've been great to keep the cafe open while he travels and conducts his workshops. However, due to significantly increased costs and the lack of a competent workforce, it became clear to close the cafe and concentrate solely on his lecture/workshops. He is also completing a cookbook of his famous recipes from the cafe. I'll let you know when it becomes available.
2.) A sign is announcing that Home Goods is on its way to Highwoods Preserve Parkway. Are you a fan of the chain store?
