Barring an act of Congress, Valley Meat Company in Roswell, NM will soon become the first horse slaughterhouse in the US since 2007, when the nation’s last equine abattoir closed its doors. For the time being, the resulting meat will be exported....

With the approach of the 100 th anniversary of the unification of Winston and Salem into one big, hyphenated metropolis, I thought it would be fitting to take a walk into the city’s past by having lunch the way downtown denizens have been doing it for decades....

Let’s face it: The Triad culinary scene is a little bit behind the curve. That’s not to say that there aren’t a lot of wonderful chefs doing amazing things around here — there are — but the trends are a bit slow in coming to this area....
