Vivian Howard

Chef & The Farmer - Kinston, NC

What comes after cooking at lauded restaurants like Spice Market and wd~50? If you’re Vivian Howard, you do an about-face, return to your roots, and open an acclaimed farm-to-table spot, earning a few JBF Award semifinalist nods along the way. (Howard also stars in A Chef’s Life, a 2014 Broadcast Award nominee.)
