11.9: Book dinner at Revival Market

Chefs Ryan Pera and Ashley Christensen both grew up in North Carolina but have very different experiences with the cuisine of their home state. Ryan, born and raised in Charlotte, grew up eating food influenced by his heritage—his parents came to North Carolina from The Bronx. But their approach to ingredients and the Southern larder is quite aligned. Join Ashley and Ryan for a special dinner event celebrating this philosophy through the recipes of Ashley's new book, Poole's. More details and tickets available here.
