‘Heritage’ cookbook author Sean Brock to appear at Chino Farms in Rancho Santa Fe


The Good Earth / Great Chefs series will present Sean Brock for a signing of his debut cookbook, “Heritage.”

Join fellow foodies for a festive autumn afternoon Nov. 16 at Chino Farm, with Brock telling stories and signing books, food samples inspired by his unique brand of Southern cuisine, and music from Prairie Sky.

There will also be new items for sale at the Pop-Up Pantry, so this is a perfect opportunity for one-of-a-kind holiday shopping. And as Brock says, “He who dies with the biggest pantry wins.”

The book signing is from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16, outdoors, rain or shine, at Chino Farm, 6123 Calzada del Bosque, Rancho Santa Fe.

Sean Brock — “the most conspicuously gifted American chef of his generation,” according to 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.
