Friday, April 9


On Monday, April 12, at 11 in the morn, Ashley Christensen of Poole’s Diner in Raleigh, NC, will host a potluck brunch for food industry folks at her home in Raleigh. By food industry folks, Ashley means people who are touched and moved by the industry in some way: cooks, servers, bartenders, writers, eaters, and drinkers.

Sean Brock, from McCrady’s in Charleston, will be at the center of the conversation. Guests will enjoy a main course, beer, wine and bloody Marys. This will be an informal event for conversations with other food peeps in the area.

Brunch is $35 per person. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the SFA documentary film initiative.

Please call Poole's for reservations, as seating is limited. 919.832.4477

Sean will be cooking a sold-out dinner the night before, also to benefit the SFA. Among the eats will be black cherry-smoked flounder with piquillo and mustard-espelette aioli; Charleston stone crab with apple jelly, wood sorrel, and preserved lemon; and poached torchon of Charleston shrimp with Benton's sausage, Brock-milled grits, and wild ramps.
