Pinehurst Resort Announces Chef & Maker Series
VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, N.C. (February 7, 2017) – Pinehurst Resort is launching a new culinary series to celebrate North Carolina’s best culinarians and creatives.
The Chef & Maker Series features three award-winning North Carolina chefs showcasing their unique talents alongside a variety of artisan makers. The first weekend, May 12-14, features acclaimed Charlotte chef Clark Barlowe (Heirloom Restaurant), then July 7-9, James Beard Award-winning chef Ashley Christensen (Death and Taxes, Poole’s Diner, etc.) of Raleigh, and finally James Beard-nominated Asheville chef Katie Button (Nightbell and Curate) Sept. 15-17.
Packages start at $399 per person and include two nights’ accommodations at one of the resort’s charming historic hotels, including The Carolina Hotel and The Holly Inn.
The weekends each kick off with the Pinehurst culinary team hosting dinners inspired by the cuisine of the featured chef. Events will include a pig pickin’, comfort food or Spanish tapas. The Friday night events will be open to the general public and tickets are available for $70 per person at Pinehurst.com/events.
“Pinehurst has a long and storied history as a festive and comfortable setting for unique culinary events and we enjoy these types of collaborations,” says Pinehurst’s Executive Chef Thierry Debailleul. “They often result in the most rewarding experiences for both the visiting chefs and our guests.”
Each Chef & Maker weekend offers its own unique schedule, including interactive demonstrations, informative workshops, chef dinners and more. Christensen and Button will also be signing their recently released cookbooks: “Poole’s Diner” (Ten Speed Press) and “Curate” (FlatIron Books) for guests.
