Kernersville’s beloved Salem Kitchen will be no more…a fire next door about a month ago has wreaked havoc with all the businesses in that building and as a result, Salem Kitchen will not be opening again:( The manager of this fine establishment has been a friend and fellow artist for years. She offered her place for a few of us sketchy sorts to come and draw. She also allowed local artists to show their work on her walls and many of us had sales from that venue. Though my friend still has employment with the Winston Salem Kitchen, she will be greatly missed as the smile and workhorse behind such a great establishment in our little town. I will miss the yummy food, the French Provincial atmosphere, and the lovely outdoor cafe area that was so perfect on pretty days! I will also miss sketching there. We will probably take a break while we find an alternative spot and get going again perhaps this summer. Or we may just name a new spot each week to be outdoors to draw. I will continue to hope that sometime in the future, Salem Kitchen can once again come to Kernersville.
