November 16 (Sunday, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm) — The Good Earth / Great Chefs series is excited to present Sean Brock and his long-awaited debut cookbook, Heritage. Join us for a festive autumn afternoon at the farm, with Chef Brock telling stories and signing books, food samples inspired by his unique brand of Southern cuisine, and music from Prairie Sky. We will also have many new items for sale at our Pop-Up Pantry, so this is a perfect opportunity for one-of-a-kind holiday shopping, and as Sean Brock says, “He who dies with the biggest pantry wins.” And we agree. Outdoors, rain or shine. Free

Sean Brock — “the most conspicuously gifted American chef of his generation” (Time) — is the James Beard Award-winning chef of Husk and McCrady’s in Charleston and of Husk Nashville. He is passionate about Southern food and culture, and his much-anticipated first cookbook, Heritage, reveals how he is transforming American flavors by exploring our culinary roots. Dubbed the “fresh prince” by Jeffrey Steingarten of Vogue, he wears the proof tattooed on his arms — carefully inked replicas of heirloom varietals. And like the other chefs from the series, Brock lets the vegetables speak for themselves.

Each chapter begins with the deliciously accessible comfort food he cooks at home (Chicken Simply Roasted in a Skillet, Hoppin’ John, Chocolate Alabama Stack Cake) and builds toward the recipes that have made him a magnet for the global spotlight (Roasted Cauliflower with Meyer Lemon and Pickled Ramps; Beer Battered Soft-Shell Crabs with Spring Vegetables, Benne, and Soft Fried Egg; Flounder Crudo with Rhubarb, Buttermilk, Radishes, and Sea Beans). His TV resume includes episodes of Top Chef, Iron Chef, and the second season of the Emmy-nominated PBS series Mind of a Chef.
