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.
