Lee Brothers' Charleston Party | Thai New Year's Celebration
Drunken Botanist Cocktails | Guess Whose Initials After That
If you are a cook who loves books (cookbooks of course), discovering new
recipes, and talking about food as if there's no tomorrow, more—having the
recipes cooked for you by a world-stage chef (that's Fearrington's Colin
Bedford, just named a Grand Chef) and spending some seriously fun and delicious
leisure time with an expert author—then take a gander at these events already on
the calendar for March and April.
All Cooks & Books events include ample recipes (if you've been to these events,
like Deb Perelman's Smitten Kitchen lunch or Colman Andrew's Italian dinner,
then you know to what extent we go!); beverage pairings (all exceptional), and,
unusual for ticketed events in the Triangle, we also include in the price tax
and gratuity—and an autographed cookbook. All of our events have sold through in
the past half year by the week before so good to sign up soon by calling
McIntyre's 919-542-3030. Here's a summary of our fantastic culinary
events through April:
