Raleigh Beer Week 2010 Roundup

- Comments Off -

Thanks to everyone who came out to the events of Raleigh Beer Week 2010.  We had a great turn out for all the events, connected a lot of beer folks from the triangle and around the country, and exposed more people to great beer.

We will begin to plan for Raleigh Beer Week 2011 in the coming months.  If you are interested in being involved next year, email [email protected]  Next year should be bigger and better.
Some press from Raleigh Beer Week 2010:

New Raleigh: Raleigh Beer Week Keeps Pouring Along: “Beer lovers from across the triangle have descended upon Raleigh night after night to partake in cask tappings, brewers forums, beer pairing dinners and even sampling some beer cocktails.”

David Mitchell – Executive Chef

- Comments Off -

Chef David Mitchell got his culinary career started early, completing a Culinary Arts program during high school outside of Atlanta, Georgia.  He continued his studies at Johnson & Wales in Charleston, South Carolina, graduating in 1999.  While in Charleston David was part of the opening team at Hank’s Seafood, sister restaurant to Chef Robert Carter’s nationally acclaimed Peninsula Grill.

Mitchell returned to Georgia, first to Athens and later to Atlanta, working his way up to managing kitchens and starting his own gourmet pasta company.  Pan De Mi Pasta supplied high quality handmade pastas to many of Atlanta’s finest restaurants.

In 2005 friends and family talked him into moving to North Carolina.  Mitchell worked in the kitchens at Glenwood Grill, Porter’s City Tavern and The Pit.  For the last three years he’s been working to make The Cafe at NOFO a great place for new Southern food. We are excited to have David in the kitchen at the Bee.
