Vivian Howard, co-creator of PBS’s A Chef’s Life, brings her definitive Southern cookbook, Deep Run Roots: Stories and Recipes from My Corner of the South, to The Regulator Bookshop for a book signing. Unfortunately, tickets that include a meal from her food truck have sold out, but you can still buy a copy of her book and have her sign it.
Deep Run Roots is 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. A culinary love letter to the region she has spent her life discovering, Deep Run Roots is an ambitious, once-in-a-generation book that belongs on the shelf next to Edna Lewis's The Taste of Country Cooking and Alice Waters's The Art of Simple Food.
Alongside vivid stories and helpful advice for a new generation, Vivian offers recipes for every interest and skill level, including foolproof dinners, crowd-pleasers, show-stopping desserts and other dishes that will send you straight to your kitchen
You can only attend the event if you purchase DEEP RUN ROOTS by Vivian Howard from The Regulator Bookshop.
