Chef Amy Tornquist is having a grand opening at her new Durham bakery, Hummingbird, from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday. The new bakery is located down the street from her restaurant, Watts Grocery, at a renovated building at 721 Broad St.
In the email that went out this afternoon, it says, "The bakery will put a sweet spin on Tornquist's ingredient-driven, locally-sourced cuisine. Indulge in treats such as syrups, jams, pickled green tomatoes, homemade marshmallows and ice cream sandwiches. Watts Grocery's wildly popular cocktail, "Watts New," a refreshing blend of house-made hibiscus tea, ginger infused simple syrup, fresh lemon juice and ginger soda, will be available for the first time as a take-home mix."
Beyond the bakery and Watts Grocery, Tornquist also owns Sage & Swift Catering.
