Ashley Christensen, chef, Raleigh empire builder, and cookbook author, is coming to Atlanta to sign copies of her latest work. Christensen will pop up for a party at Cover Books in Westside this Saturday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Copies of Poole's: Recipes and Stories from a Modern Diner will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis, and Miller Union chef Steven Satterfield will serve small bites that show off recipes from the book.

Christensen opened Poole’s Diner in Raleigh nine years ago, and she has since launched four more restaurants, a coffeeshop, and a private events space in the town that is home to North Carolina State University. Her most recent opening, Death & Taxes, was a finalist (along with Atlanta’s Staplehouse) for the James Beard Foundation’s Best New Restaurant award in 2016.

Update: And in addition to a signing party at Cover Books, Christensen is planning a dinner for this Sunday at Floataway Cafe. She’ll be joined by Satterfield and Ryan Smith of Staplehouse, and the trio will prepare a dinner from recipes in Poole’s. The event, which begins at 5 p.m., is $125 per person and includes the family-style meal, a copy of the book, and live entertainment. Proceeds benefit the Southern Foodways Alliance.

ATL pals, I'm heading your way this weekend! Please join me at FLOATAWAY CAFE with chefs @rutabaga2 @millerunionchef and @ryansmithchef
