Zeppole is doughnuts – Italian-style

As summer approaches and street fairs and festivals start to pop up, my thoughts turn to vendors hawking the fried dough called zeppole. Fortunately, here in Charlotte, we have Bruce Moffett’s Stagioni and can get the light, golden puffs of pastry any time of year.

Ann Allen of Lake Wylie, who is the copy editor for most of The Observer’s food stories, visited “a wonderful little restaurant in Fort Mill, S.C., called Local Dish,” where she tried the sweet and savory Pumpkin Hummus.

You Asked For It: Secret to 10 Pin’s salad is the jam

My favorite salad in Charlotte might come as a surprise. It’s the Great Grandma’s Salad at 10 Pin Brew & BBQ, neatly tucked into the 10 Park Lanes bowling alley on Montford Drive. I know it sounds crazy that my favorite salad comes from a bowling alley. But I’m not the only one. I eat at the Charlotte landmark regularly, and my dining companions wholeheartedly agree.
