Cooks & Books was founded with a premise that there’s no better way to explore a new cookbook than by talking with the author, and sampling and delving into those dishes with seriously fun and delicious discussion. The series is is a collaboration between Colin Bedford, the Executive Chef at Fearrington’s two restaurants – the landmark Fearrington House Restaurant and the casual bar and grill, The Fearrington Granary – and Keebe Fitch of McIntyre’s Books, one of the South’s most celebrated independent bookstores, with an amazing cookbook selection.
Since we launched the series in 2011, we’ve hosted chefs and writers from across the region and nationally like Thomas Keller (Bouchon Bakery), Ruth Reichl (Delicious!), Michael Ruhlman (Egg), John Currence (Pickles, Pigs & Whiskey), David Tanis (One Good Dish). Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton (Canal House Cooks Everyday), Frances and Ed Mayes (The Tuscan Sun Cookbook), food writer and editor Colman Andrews, the Lee Bros. (Charleston Dinner Party), Deb Perelman (Smitten Kitchen Cookbook) and Nathalie Dupree (Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking). Details on our Fall 2014 series coming soon!
