Katie Button

Cúrate and Nightbell, Asheville, NC

Katie Button is on a mission to prove Spanish cuisine is far more than just patatas bravas and chorizo. The El Bulli veteran and 2014 nominee for Rising Star Chef of the Year offers up delicious edible evidence of Spain’s culinary heritage at her two Asheville hot spots, Cúrate and Nightbell. Now, with her new cookbook, Cúrate: Authentic Spanish Food from an American Kitchen, Button is sharing her skills and knowledge with home cooks. The tome includes 125 recipes straight from the restaurant's kitchen, giving readers a sense of traditional tastes alongside mouthwatering new dishes inspired by the flavors and techniques of the Iberian peninsula.
