Last season Howard hosted S.N.O.B.'s Chef Frank Lee who shared a recipe for Gullah Clam Hash
Full disclosure: I'm a Vivian Howard groupie. My indoctrination happened sometime last January. In the final dreariness of Charleston's winter, I discovered (so late to the party) Howard's PBS show A Chef's Life
and became immediately obsessed. There's something about the combination of the mother of twins' incredible work ethic at Chef & the Farmer, her Kinston, N.C.'s small town appeal, plus Howard's Southern food money shots that's like catnip to me. And I'm not alone. Howard has become a star for her restaurant and TV show, most recently taking home the Outstanding Personality/Host in the 2016 James Beard Foundation awards.
Now she's coming to Charleston in promotion of her new cookbook, Deep Run Roots
. Howard is loading up her very own food truck for a 30-city book tour and on Tues. Oct. 18 she'll stop here.
Blue Bicycle Books
hosts Howard at Whole Foods from 5-8 p.m. for a $55 ticketed book signing. Tickets include a sandwich, drink, and a copy of the book. To grab a seat, click here
