What a weekend it was celebrating the premiere of our 5th Season of A Chef's Life in Durham. It's hard to believe we're embarking on our fifth season of a show nobody thought we would ever be able to make - and what a journey it's been! We couldn't have done it without our gracious sponsors and friends who've made this incredible journey possible, or our cast & crew who make our stories come to life in a way that's resonated with so many of you.

And thank you, all of you, for coming to a sold-out screening of "Two-Matoes" at The Carolina Theatre last Sunday. From the delicious brunch from John May and his crew at Piedmont; to the lively conversation with Vivian, director Cynthia Hill and moderator and former editor of Food & Wine, Dana Cowin; to the fantastic rendition of our Avett Brothers theme song by Kidznotes; to the Vine Ripe collaboration with Sierra Nevada; to the tobacco whiskey collaboration with Jefferson's Bourbon; to the hundreds of bottles of Duke's Mayonnaise lining the halls of the 21c Museum Hotel; to the epic dance party that ensued with Love Cannon at the helm; it's safe to say good times were had by all. Especially Vivian.
