The Women of Winston-Salem’s Dining Scene
From the beginning of our (Winston-Salem) time, women have been instrumental in the innovation and sustainability of our city. When the early Moravians settled here in 1753, women were educated, able to properly nourish their families and even teach literacy to children. The trend continued with the founding of Salem College, America's longest running women's college and on into the Roaring 20's era when it was women who were the masterminds behind some of Winston-Salem's greatest historic homes: Reynolda House (Katharine Reynolds) and Graylyn Estate (Nathalie Gray).
Today, these progressive women are executive chefs and restaurant owners in a city that is quickly building popularity as a "foodie" destination. Take a look at this piece published on InsideChic Blog about "The Women of Winston-Salem's Dining Scene."
