What's chicken salad about?
re: Sue in Mt P
Actually, both questions. Is there something special, traditional, regional etc. about chicken salad served at luncheons? What's the difference between the Episcopalian and Eastern Star versions?
When I posted that, I was thinking about the teriyaki chicken plate lunch fundraisers that Japanese-American churches in California are known for.
I'd certainly welcome someone to drive me or ride shotgun! Come one, come all, c'mon over to Edenton (drop me an email, address in my profile).
The hard part is that I want to stop at Weeping Radish on the way to Edenton from Nags Head. It doesn't open until 11am on Friday, and then I have more than an hour's drive to get to Edenton. On Saturday I'm tied up with judging through the lunch period and probably until about 2 or 3pm. I'm gonna have to prioritize my lunch choices, and I don't think I can miss the pig pickin on friday. I'm thinking of stopping by the chicken salad places and asking if I can pay and reserve a lunch for pick-up on Saturday after the HogFest.

I can not comment on your issues but I find it so delightful to see your on the SouthEast
site since I fondly remember you as a lengend with Chowhound in the SF Bay area
I recently(10 months ago) left Berkeley to move to Asheville, NC
You really should visit here -it is so much like Berzerkley in so many ways
I never thought I would leave Berkeley and settle in the South
But this is a great place to retire
Hi there, mustardgirl, thanks for the kind words. And I recall when you'd be posting on both boards, and had wondered what your situation might be. Tonight my Charlotte friends (whom I've known since I was a child and then we all went to UC Berkeley together) asked me if I'd be heading to Asheville because it's just like Berkeley. Unfortunately, not this trip, but some day.
In case anyone is headed to the festivities today. I arrived in Edenton yesterday and tried the St Paul's chicken salad lunch. It is a sit-down affair.
The plate is brought to your table. It includes chicken salad, pea salad, homemade sweet pickles, Smithfield ham, warm roll and butter, ice tea, and lemon bar served on real dinnerware. The recipes are in their recipe book, Take the Tour for the Taste of Colonial Edenton.
I tried to find out how this spread differs from the $7.50 Eastern Star luncheon. Eastern Star includes a cupcake and deviled egg and its served on a paper plate.
