The Durham Book Social: Cookbook Swap & Conversation
March 10 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
You could call it a community book club, or an ice cream social recast for grownups who like books and wine. At the inaugural gathering of The Durham Book Social, co-produced with our friends at Piedmont Wine Imports, we’ll swap cookbooks, drink wine, discover books that inspire local cooks, and share snacks and food stories.
Dust off that old cookbook, drop it at the swap table, and pick up a glass of wine before mingling with fellow swappers, and browsing a vintage cookbook collection curated by Jennings Brody of Parker and Otis. Settle in with snacks from The Durham and conversation with local food leaders on the books that helped shape their perspectives on food and wine.
Our panel of cookbook enthusiasts:
Ronni Lundy – journalist and author of numerous Southern and Appalachian cookbooks
Ricky Moore – chef and owner of Saltbox Seafood Joint (Durham)
Vimala Rajendran – chef and owner of Vimala’s Cherryblossom Café (Chapel Hill)
Jay Murrie – owner of Piedmont Wine Imports
5pm | Drop off a cookbook or two
5:45pm | Cookbook conversation
6:30pm | Pick up a “new to you” cookbook
Snacks and wine available for purchase courtesy of Andrea Reusing and The Durham and Piedmont Wine Imports (lovers and sellers of small farm wine, and avid home cooks)
