BEST APPETIZER (DISH AND RESTAURANT)
SLIDERS AT THE HARVEST MOON GRILLE IN THE DUNHILL HOTEL
Harvest Moon Grille, the brick and mortar evolution of a food truck, delights in using local foods since owner and passionate localvore Cassie Parson is also a farmer who raises Tamworth (a Heritage breed) hogs, chickens, and produce on a 10-acre farm in Lincoln County. The Best App award goes to her sliders. The Tamworth threesome — a slider with goat cheese, another with red pepper relish and a third with kimchi — is brilliant, while the beef (from local Baucom Farms) brisket sliders are similarly inventive.
