Pedigreed chefs and husband and wife tandem Katie and Justin Meddis met at Cypress in Charleston, South Carolina, and now own and operate the destination meat market and sweet shop, Rose’s, in Durham, North Carolina, where they churn out world class pastries, charcuterie, and take-away dinners, making sure all their customers go home sufficiently salted and sugared. Their techniques are fine-tuned, their tastes refined, and their energy relentless as they work tirelessly to provide their community with the best butchery and baked goods in the region, including specialties such as North Carolina Potato Sausage and Crème Fraîche Panna Cotta with Strawberry and Candied Kumquat Jam. Rose’s is a bright and airy space with a display case packed with locally sourced, house-made meat products and a counter full of confections by Katie, who cut her teeth as pastry cook at Chez Panisse.
