Born in South Carolina, raised in Jersey, educated in Europe and currently running her own restaurant in Asheville — Chef Katie Button brings a lot to the table, and we’re not just talking about her food. But while we’re on the subject, she published her first cookbook last year, where she combined the flavors of Spain with American seasonal ingredients to create some mind-blowing flavor. Trust us, this is way better than your mom’s “world famous” coleslaw.
Sept. 15-17, you don’t have to drive all the way to Asheville (or learn how to cook) to get a taste of Button’s creations. You can eat your way through Spain without even needing your passport. Just bring your appetite, and maybe your stretchy pants, because Katie Button and the Pinehurst culinary team are whipping up a Cúrate inspired menu for the final weekend of the Chef & Maker series.
There’s food, alcohol and live music — your top three priorities rolled into one event — so go ahead and get your tickets now. You’ll enjoy this way more than the usual take out and Two Buck Chuck you have on your couch each weekend.
