Ashley Christensen’s inspired, down-home cooking has been recognized with two James Beard Awards and countless other accolades, and she has been an outspoken advocate for eliminating sexual harassment in our nation’s kitchens. She has made an indelible mark on the Raleigh community with her philanthropy, her reliance on the integrity of local ingredients, and her contribution to the development of the city’s downtown neighborhood. The winning bidder’s party of four will have an opportunity to get up close and personal with one of North Carolina’s foremost chefs, in addition to sampling a wide range of her food.

Your adventure will begin at Fox Liquor Bar, a “subterranean drinking den” where Ashley will meet you for a round of specialty cocktails and snacks. You’ll then walk four blocks to Death & Taxes to indulge in a feast of regional meats and seafood; courses will be served family style, accompanied by wines from the cellar. The festivities will conclude the next morning with a decadent and sumptuous brunch at Beasley’s Chicken + Honey: will it be chicken and waffles, chicken pot pie, a hot chicken sandwich, or a little bit of all three? You’ll leave with signed copies of Ashley’s cookbook, along with some treats for the road in case you get hungry.

INSIDER’S INFO: Experience to be scheduled for a mutually agreeable date and must be scheduled at least six (6) weeks in advance. Dinner does not include tax, gratuity, accommodations or ground transportation.
