Let's take a culinary trip across North Carolina.Our leader will be food expert and retired UNC-Chapel Hill professor Marcie Cohen Ferris. Our guidebook will be her latest book, 'Edible North Carolina.'For many years I traveled across our state searching for old-time country cooking eateries and simple barbecue restaurants, places where the locals meet to catch up with community news.Ferris and the group of food experts she assembled for her book have taught me that I missed a lot about our state's foodways.
