"You could call it a community book club, or an ice cream social recast for grownups who like books and wine. At the inaugural gathering of The Durham Book Social, co-produced with our friends at Piedmont Wine Imports, we’ll swap cookbooks, drink wine, share cooking tips, discover books that inspire local food professionals, and celebrate our love of food.
Dust off that old cookbook, drop it at the swap table, and pick up a glass of wine before mingling with fellow swappers, and browsing a vintage cookbook collection curated by Jennings Brody of Parker and Otis. Settle in with snacks from The Durham and conversation with local food leaders on the books that helped shape their perspectives on food and wine.
5pm | Drop off a cookbook or two
5:30pm | Cookbook conversation
6:30pm | Pick up a “new to you” cookbook
Snacks by Andrea Reusing and The Durham Hotel
Wines by Piedmont Wine Imports (lovers and sellers of small farm wine, and avid home cooks)"
