Welcome to the Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen Farm-to-Fork Blog.
Each week we’ll publish photos and articles about the “farm to fork” fare at Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen restaurants in Greensboro and Cary, North Carolina. We’ll also provide Farmer’s Market finds and dinner ideas to share with your family and foodie friends, as well as tidbits and hands-on activities from the artisans and vendors we’re lucky enough to work with across the state.
If there’s a farmer, a chef, or a recipe you’d like to see featured here, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Originally from Dodge City, Kansas, Molly says “there’s no place like home, in Greensboro.” You can also hear her singing at one of the Tuesday night “Songs from a Southern Kitchen” series at the Greensboro location. With her previous experience as a print journalist at the News & Observer in Raleigh, and at the News & Record in Greensboro, NC, she now splits her time between songwriting, performing, and writing.
