In 2005, Vivian Howard decided to return to her roots in North Carolina to open a farm-to-fork restaurant in the small town of Kinston. One year later, she and her husband opened Chef & the Farmer, serving local, seasonal, creative cuisine, with more than 70% of the restaurant’s foodstuffs sourced from within 60 miles. Now a destination for diners all over the country, the restaurant inspired the award-winning PBS series A Chef ’s Life, now in its fourth season. Enjoy mimosas and light, local fare while Chef Howard reads from and signs copies of her highly anticipated first cookbook, Deep Run Roots: Stories & Recipes from My Corner of the South.

Lowes Foods is the event’s presenting sponsor, and Bookmarks, a Winston-Salem based literary arts organization, is the event’s promotional partner. 

A Morning with Vivian Howard is part of a weekend of events hosted by Reynolda House inspired by its fall exhibition Grant Wood and the American Farm. Howard is the guest of honor at the Museum’s annual fundraising gala which will be held Friday evening, Nov. 4. Tickets for that event are no longer available; An Evening for Reynolda: Celebrating the American Farm with Vivian Howard reached its 450-seat capacity months in advance. See below for more information.

Hi, Sandra, 

Thank you for your question. Tickets for this event are sold out, and we do not have a waiting list. There are limited packages available through the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel, noted above, or you may want to check Vivian Howard's website for other locations where she'll be appearing as part of her book tour. We hope to see you at the Museum this fall for our other events!
