In the next installment of Chris Shepherd's Book Club, Chris's good friend and fellow James Beard Award winner Ashley Christensen joins him virtually from Raleigh, NC as they cook through her cookbook, Poole's: Recipes and Stories from a Modern Diner, with you.
"Ashley is an inspiration to me," said Chris. "Her motto is 'Don't forget kindness,' and kindness really does radiate from her in the way she gives back to her community, treats her staff and guests and in her cooking. I can't wait to virtually cook with her."
