‘Deep Run Roots’ author making stop in Manteo

Vivian Howard will sign copies of her award-winning book “Deep Run Roots” in Manteo on June 30 from noon to 2 p.m.

The signing is sponsored by Downtown Books and in conjunction with Outer Banks Distilling release of Angel’s Share, the distillery’s new limited-edition rum with proceeds benefiting a local Dare County charity.

After working in the New York restaurant world, Howard and her husband Ben Knight returned to North Carolina and opened The Chef & The Farmer restaurant in Kinston, Vivian’s hometown. Their journey, as Vivian explores Southern cuisine, past and present, is featured in the popular half-hour documentary and cooking series “A Chef’s Life,” on PBS.

Her first cookbook, “Deep Run Roots” is a 2017 IACP award winner in four categories: Cookbook of the Year, Julia Child First Book award, Chefs & Restaurants award and general award. Part story, part history and part recipes, the book focuses on the creative cooking rooted in the eastern Carolina region’s ingredients and traditions.

Tickets for the June 30 book-signing are available now and must be purchased beforehand. Buy them at Downtown Books, Sir Walter Raleigh Street in Manteo, or online at eventbrite.com. For more information call Downtown Books at 252-473-1056.

The book signing and fundraiser will be held at the Outer Banks Distilling located at 510 Budleigh St. in downtown Manteo.
