From our organizers:
Beginning this September, the Seaport District will welcome eight dynamic female chefs from varying parts of the world, each hosting a one week dinner series over the course of six weeks.
ASHLEY CHRISTENSEN: America’s New Favorite Southern Chef
What do a diner, a speakeasy, a fried chicken joint, a burger bar, and a restaurant dedicated to the art of cooking with wood fire have in common? Well, they constitute the stunning legacy that Ashley Christensen has built in Raleigh, NC by reworking the classics into thrilling new experiences. It’s earned her national praise and top recognition from the James Beard Foundation, Food & Wine, Eater, and the New York Times.
But the best part is, when you dine at one of her five restaurants, she and her team strive to make you feel you’re in one of the best places in the world, which, thanks to Ashley’s prolific philanthropic efforts outside of the kitchen, you are. And now you don’t have to leave Manhattan to experience her hospitality, because she’s bringing her famous Macaroni Au Gratin — and a whole lot more — to Seaport Food Lab.
