Here's what's happening at the Beard House and beyond next week:


Monday, June 11, 6:00 P.M.
The Darling of Raleigh
Mention the Raleigh food scene to anyone and one name stands out: Ashley Christensen. This influential chef turned retro-chic on its head at Poole’s Downtown Diner and her three other restaurants, where her thoughtful, ingredient-driven comfort food is at once nostalgic and thoroughly of this moment.

Tuesday, June 12, 7:00 P.M.
Hot New Moroccan
Marrakesh born chef Mourad Lahlou’s modern approach to Moroccan cooking has gained a loyal Bay Area following, while his restaurant, Aziza, has earned the first Michelin star ever awarded to a Moroccan restaurant. Now the author of a new cookbook, Mourad: New Moroccan, Lahlou continues to spread his passion for his native cuisine.

Wednesday, June 13, 12:00 P.M.
Beard on Books: Silvia Lehrer
Food critic Silvia Lehrer celebrates the local bounty and unmistakable charm of Long Island's East End in her new cookbook, Savoring the Hamptons. With over 250 recipes, as well as narratives and photographs of local wineries, farmers, fisherman, artisans, and restaurateurs, Lehrer provides a front row seat to the culinary landscape of the legendary coastal enclave.

Wednesday, June 13, 6:00-9:00 P.M.
Sunset Social
Join the James Beard Foundation Greens (foodies under 40) and Stonehenge Partners for an evening of stunning views, delicious food, refreshing drinks, and great music. The JBF Greens members and residents from the Stonehenge portfolio will come together at a sky-high party on The Olivia’s 36th floor. It’s the perfect way to kick off summer!

Wednesday, June 13, 6:00 P.M.
The Philadelphia Pork Show
David Katz’s legendary porcine-themed dinners are an annual tradition at his critically acclaimed restaurant, Mémé. Now he’s taking this pork show on the road—and bringing a crew of talented Philly-based chefs (and Philly native sommelier Michael Madrigale) along for the ride.

Thursday, June 14, 7:00 P.M.
Lowcountry Elegance
Tucked away in a beautifully restored Victorian house in the heart of Charleston, Poogan’s Porch is a culinary mainstay in a fiercely food-loving town. Chef Daniel Doyle and wine director Brad Ball bring vitality to the storied setting and a refined, modern aesthetic to restaurant’s signature Lowcountry cuisine.
