Chef Vivian Howard, Food Truck & Book Signing - TICKETED EVENT

MEALS SOLD OUT - BOOK TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE

MEET CHEF VIVIAN HOWARD
Deep Run Roots is Vivian Howard’s comprehensive record of modern Southern cooking, filled with stories and more than 200 recipes that celebrate the flavors of her eastern North Carolina home.

Featuring Vivian’s favorite simple family dishes, memorable meals from her award-winning restaurant, and time-honored traditional preparations, this cookbook is a culinary love letter to the region she has spent her life discovering—an ambitious, once-in-a-generation book that belongs on the shelf next to Edna Lewis’s The Taste of Country Cooking and The Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters.
 

Vivian Howard is the chef and owner of the acclaimed Chef and the Farmer restaurant in Kinston, NC, fifteen miles from her home of Deep Run. She trained under Wylie Dufresne and Sam Mason at WD-50 and was a member of the opening team at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Spice Market in New York. The first woman since Julia Child to win a Peabody Award for a cooking program, she co-created and stars in the PBS series A Chef’s Life.
