If you’re a frequent viewer of public television, you may have heard of Chef Vivian Howard, a North Carolina native and the central focus of the five-year run of “A Chef’s Life” and her new PBS program, “Somewhere South.” For those who are familiar with her and others who are now curious to learn more, we are delighted to announce an upcoming virtual event that is being presented by the planning committee of ON THE SAME PAGE, Ashe County’s literary festival. Due to COVID-19, the multi-faceted series of in-person events held in September had to be cancelled, but organizers worked creatively to develop a special online event and highlight an author with North Carolina ties. This special live event will take place on the evening of November 19 and follows the recent official release of Howard’s much-anticipated second cookbook, “This Will Make It Taste Good.”
This award-winning chef, who holds culinary, Emmy and Peabody Award honors, will connect with us virtually through the power of technology in this special one-and-a-half hour presentation, hosted Georgann Eubanks, author, food blogger and long-time friend of ON THE SAME PAGE.
“SkyLine has been among the annual sponsors of ON THE SAME PAGE literary festival since it debuted over a decade ago, and we are delighted to help carry on this wonderful tradition by featuring Chef Vivian Howard,” said SkyLine Public Relations Administrator Karen Powell. “In conjunction with SkyLine’s 60th year celebration in 2011 and as a complementary feature of that year’s ON THE SAME PAGE Festival, we debuted our cooperative’s third cookbook with a special tasting reception that featured recipes from our staff, board and member customers. As much as we relish the treasured recipes shared through our local cookbook projects, SkyLine considers it a special honor to sponsor this virtual, culinary-focused event to welcome Vivian Howard to Ashe County and to the all of the High Country region’s kitchens and communities that we serve.”
