Women to Watch Leadership Initiative Luncheon

Whether you've dined at one of her Kinston-based restaurants, were captivated by her PBS show "A Chef's Life" or braved a recipe from her debut cookbook, Deep Run Roots, Vivian Howard's influence has reached far beyond her own kitchen. (And lucky for us, she'll soon have one of those in Wilmington, too.) 

Join us to hear from Vivian about her career, lessons learned along the way and plans for her new Wilmington restaurant.
