At The Flavor Exchange bottles of olive oil dot marble countertops, peek out of rough-hewn wicker baskets, and run along the length of walls lined with pantry shelves and curio cabinets. The polished metal gleam of the lids sealing jars of preserves or spices cast a dappled glow on olive-green walls. Though the ample selection may overwhelm some gourmands, the shop’s EVOO experts curate the experience, guiding customers from decanter to decanter, chatting about winsome flavor combinations, and treating palates to tastes of organic, kosher olive oils and herb-infused balsamic vinegars. Additionally, the staff leads occasional cooking classes, giving budding chefs a chance to experiment with olive-oil-infused entrees and add a few unique recipes to their repertoire without having to infiltrate Betty Crocker's research and development fortress.

Since its maiden curing of 1947, the Phillips Brothers Country Hams family has been transmogrifying plain old pork into the Southern country-style hams that earned them the National Country Ham Association’s 2004 smoked-ham grand-championship trophy. The magic begins as each lucky leg marches through two pampering cycles of cure-mix massage and relaxation in chilled oak bins for 40–45 days. After a quick dip to remove excess salt, heroic hocks bask in dry heat for at least 25 days before their debut. Customers exercise culinary imaginations with a whole country ham ($49.95) or staple packages of Phillips wafer-thin slices ($8.99/lb.) together to construct an edible self-portrait. The Midnight Snack pack, a down-home treasure chest of biscuit-cut country ham, baking mix, syrup or jelly, and grits, begs to be assembled into a late-night buffet ($37.95). Accent savory tastes using condiments including Saluda honey on the comb ($24) and locally made jellies ($5), with varieties such as garlic pepper and raspberry brandy complementing each ham's flavor, coloring, and collection of novelty shotglasses.
