I’m not going to lie, I was skeptical of Charlotte, NC when I found out we were shooting an episode of Man V. Food Nation there. I wondered what North Carolina had to offer other than BBQ. To be even more honest, I was expecting Charlotte to be a city full of toothless closed-minded hicks. That could not have been further from truth.
Charlotte has, friendly people, lots of live music and a surprisingly wide range of delicious dining options. They also have the best chicken wings I have ever had, but that’s another post.
Working on a food show has its perks. As soon as people find out who we are, they all want to point us in the direction of the best food. They did.
