Deep Run Roots

Sale price$45.00

In 2006, Vivian Howard opened Chef and the Farmer in Kinston, North Carolina, putting the town on the culinary map. Despite economic challenges, she focused on rural development by sourcing local ingredients like sweet potatoes, blueberries, shrimp, pork, and beans. Her cookbook, Deep Run Roots, is a culmination of years exploring Eastern North Carolina's culinary riches, reminiscent of classic American food writing like The Fannie Farmer Cookbook and The Taste of Country Cooking.
