BELLA BEAN ORGANICS IN CHARLESTON! A TASTING EVENT AT THE GIN JOINT
Monday, June 23rd from 3-5 PM

In celebration of Bella Bean Organics' expansion into SC, owners Holcomb and DeMent will host a tasting at The Gin Joint in Charleston, SC June 23rd, from 3pm to 5pm. Meet the farmers and owners behind Bella Bean Organics and taste a huge selection of their foods: everything from Chapel Hill Creamery cheeses and Frenc
h Broad chocolates and confections to Anson Mills Heirloom Popcorn, a selection of gluten-free foods, cakes, handmade pastas, and sausages and cured meats from Coon Rock Farm and Giacamos.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to get to know famed North Carolina artisan bread baker and cookbook author Lionel Vatinet whose glorious sourdoughs will be available in Charleston now for the first time. Vatinet's NC-based La Farm Bakery was named "one of the 20 Great American Bread Bakeries" by Saveur, and his new cookbook, A Passion for Bread: Lessons from a Master Baker, debuted in 2013. Vatinet will sample 10 crusty European breads, all of which benefit from a 3-day fermentation and use NC
grown and milled heirloom wheat. (www.lafarmbakery.com)

Others artisans and farmers who will be at the event are coming from Chapel Hill Creamery, French Broad Chocolate Factory & Tasting Room,Bulls Bay Saltworks, and Charleston Tea Plantation. Free cocktails at the event will feature Jack Rudy Cocktail Company and Bittermilk mixers.

"We are farmers, says Jamie DeMent, who with her partner, Richard Holcomb, are the owners of Bella Bean Organics.

"We've been curating a list of farmer partners and producers for the entire decade we've been farming. And we couldn't do this if we didn't understand seasonality. We are inside the system and understand it."

Just what is this, you ask? It's something that we're very excited about, so much so that we included it in this print issue's Where to Shop section.

"If you crossed your local farmers market with Fresh Direct, Bella Bean Organics is what you'd get. Owned by North Carolina farmers Richard Holcomb and Jamie DeMent, Bella Bean delivers sustainable meat, dairy, and produce from more than 50 farms in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland, plus enough dry goods and pantry items to stock your entire larder, door-to-door. The virtual shelves are packed with everything from baby lettuces to Anson Mills Heirloom Popcorn to fresh-baked breads from Lionel Vatinets La Farm Bakery to top-shelf mixers such as Bittermilk and Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. Need shampoo? Soap? That's available, too. And the selection is always expanding as new products become available, thanks to the duo's extensive network of producers and growers (when they had trouble locating a sufficiently delicious, sufficiently regional source for vinegar, DeMent just kept asking around until she stumbled upon a couple of varieties from Virginia Vinegar Works)."
