Founder

Durham-based travel and food journalist, Shayla Martin has been enamored with food for as long as she can remember. Although she has followed her stomach through 25 countries and 30 states, no place has stolen her heart (and tastebuds) like North Carolina. Each vendor in a Taste and See NC box is her expert recommendation and in some cases, a long ago interview subject. She hopes you grow to love these small, North Carolina food businesses as much as she does.
