We're starting an NC Made Cookbook Club and you're invited!
We love taking a regular get together with friends and elevating it to the level of special occasion in small ways. Mixing up a fancy themed cocktail, serving appetizers on frilly toothpicks (inspired by Mermaids obviously), and now starting our very own NC Made Cookbook Club!
Make an event out of your next social gathering and join in on the fun! Everyone prepares a different recipe from the same cookbook written by a North Carolina author and brings it to the table potluck style. Then tag us + share a photo of your prepared dish on Instagram with the hashtag #ncmadecookbookclub
We'd looove to see what everyone's cooking up and to share your creations on our feed. Mmm feed.
Kicking off our mouth-watering new series will be Poole's: Recipes and Stories from a Modern Diner written by celebrated Raleigh-based chef Ashley Christensen, winner of the James Beard Award for Best Chef Southeast in 2014 and owner of Poole's Diner, Death & Taxes, Beasley's Chicken + Honey, Chuck's, and Fox Liquor Bar. We've long been admirers of Ashley's work and especially love her modern twists on southern comfort classics. It's been difficult to settle on just one recipe -- right now it's between the Chilled Corn Soup with Cherry Tomatoes, the Buttermilk Chess Pie with Grilled Peaches, and the Cauliflower Soup with Sultanas and Crisp Capers -- but we're super excited to share some delicious North Carolina-inspired dishes together with friends.
