Culinary Events, McIntyre's Books Author Events
Our Cooks & Books series continues with a gardener’s and mixologist’s dream party introducing the bestselling author Amy Stewart (The Drunken Botanist: The Plants that Create the World’s Great Drinks) on the Garden Terrace.
Local expert, colleague, friend of the author Gary Crunkleton of the eponymous popular Chapel Hill private club/bar will make introductions. Gary has also brought in Charlotte Voisey to mix drinks and help with the seriously fun and delicious discussions that naturally take up at these Cooks & Books events.
The Drunken Botanist Cocktail Party includes cocktails, tax and grat — plus one autographed copy of Drunken Botanist — $95 (and we’ll have additional copies for purchase, as this is one great gift book, says Keebe Fitch.) Join early for our special garden tour too (see sidebar)!
Author Amy Stewart
“This will be a fun event. Charlotte Voisey is the rock-star bartender joining us,” says Gary. “We are doing cocktails with Hendrick’s gin, also one Milagro Tequila, and one Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum. And of course the book is great. Amy has done a stupendous job bringing fascinating details about botanicals to our glass. Drunken Botanist is a fun read for any imbiber.”
And in a beverage-pairing reversal, Executive Chef Colin Bedford and his team are creating an hors d’ouevre menu to complement the drinks.
For more on this genius book that has really taken off in its first weeks, see Amy Stewart’s blog, where you can also listen to a recent NPR Morning Edition interview.
For more on Charlotte Voisey, read this article in Wine Enthusiast, which voted her Mixologist of the Year.
We are really looking forward to this event, and hope to see many of her publishing team at Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill (just down the road from us) out at Fearrington for this event.
After the event, may we suggest for dinner options Fearrington House (fine dining) or The Granary (casual fare). We recommend arranging a designated driver.
