Tomorrow, Charleston will get a chance to sample Raleigh-based chef Ashley Christensen’s fare without a trip up I-95. NoMo all day cafe Butcher & Bee welcomes Christensen to the Lowcountry on Tuesday, November 15 for a celebration of her newly released cookbook, Poole's: Recipes and Stories from a Modern Diner.

Ticket-holding guests will have a chance to sample food and beverages from the book and take home a signed copy. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. and tickets start at $50.

If you haven’t caught up on the latest Eater Upsell with Christensen, give it a listen here. Here’s a quick introduction:

Ashley Christensen owes a lot to macaroni and cheese. The version on the menu at Poole's Diner, her first restaurant, sells tens of thousands of orders a year — helping anchor the restaurant in Raleigh's revitalizing downtown, and bringing new life (not to mention cheese and carbs) to the neighborhood. Now, seven restaurants later, Christensen's work is synonymous with the South's culinary renaissance, anchoring a vast and vibrant community throughout her region, and beyond. Christensen stopped by the Eater Upsell studios to talk with hosts Helen and Greg about teamwork, kale fatigue, and what makes North Carolina the perfect place for women to become culinary powerhouses.
