Jamie DeMent: The Farmhouse Chef
*Please note time: 3:00PM*
Durham's Piedmont restaurant co-owner Jamie DeMent will discuss her fabulous new cookbook, The Farmhouse Chef: Recipes and Stories from My Carolina Farm. DeMent’s deliciously observant stories illuminate what life is really like on a working farm. The Farmhouse Chef offers 150 recipes for every occasion, from down home to downright elegant, inspired by Coon Rock Farm’s yield through the four seasons. The Farmhouse Chef will inspire those who may not have a lot of time to cook, let alone farm, but who care about eating and preparing seasonal, healthfully grown food.
Jamie DeMent farms and cooks on Coon Rock Farm in Hillsborough. A well-known cooking teacher, she also owns, with her partner, Richard Holcomb, Piedmont Restaurant in Durham and Bella Bean Organics.
