Kakao's chocolate bars and barks, truffles, and other confections are handmade on-site and feature local ingredients, including Mattingly's beer, sunshine, and feelings. While some menacing candy makers inject artificial space-whale fat into their whale-fat pies, Kakao eschews all artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. Fresh cream, honey, and sugar create the buxom, butyraceous taste of its caramels ($6 for a four-pack), and chocolate bark ($3) is chipped off the cacao tree with an axe.

Shoppers meander down the aisles at Food Outlet, pausing to admire plump packages of salisbury steaks or to rifle through selections of barbecue sauces. Soon, their carts are full of groceries from top purveyors—crunchy italian breads, battered flounder fillets, and links of pork sausage. Before checking out, they visit the dessert section to select a treat from the tempting variety of pies, muffins, and pastries.

Guests may learn how to describe the scent of wine using an aroma wheel, how to judge quality, and other skills.

The flavors of the South mingle with the Cajun spices of the Louisiana bayou at Sister Cities Cajun and BBQ. On the barbecue side, pit masters smoke meats slowly to create juicy prime rib or tenderize pork shoulders so the meat pulls right off the bone. They pair these Southern staples with a range of sides, from the fried-potato salad to the classic red beans and rice. On the other side of the menu, chefs cook up spicy dishes featuring fresh seafood. They blacken catfish for traditional po' boys and add shrimp to everything from stuffed mushrooms to tacos topped with a Cajun slaw. Staffers don't just offer food for the stomach, however. They also provide food for the mind with their in-house book exchange.
