About the speaker
Vivian Howard is an author, chef, restaurant owner, storyteller, and host of the PBS show, “A Chef’s Life.” Her New York Times bestseller, “Deep Run Roots: Stories & Recipes from My Corner of the South,” is a landmark work of American food writing, as much a storybook as it is a cookbook, imparting the true tale of Eastern North Carolina food. Vivian and her restaurants — Chef & the Farmer, Boiler Room Oyster Bar and Benny’s Big Time Pizzeria — have racked up numerous accolades, including her selection as a five-time James Beard semifinalist for Best Chef: Southeast. This year she launched her newest concept, Handy & Hot, an online limited-release bakeshop. “A Chef’s Life,” the five-season documentary television series celebrating Eastern North Carolina food traditions, has taken home a Daytime Emmy, Peabody award, and James Beard award for Outstanding Personality/Host. The series is segueing into a new series, “South by Somewhere,“ which will tell stories of the American South in the context of global food traditions.
