Michael Ruhlman, the celebrated and near-ubiquitous foodwriter for the stars (hah!), will be returning to Durham for a few days beginning this Sunday. The Duke (and note I did not fall back on the overused “DOOK”) grad will be conducting a reading at the Regulator Bookshop on Sunday and hosting a true kafee klatch at 3CUPS in Chapel Hill on Tuesday morning. The highlight of Ruhlman’s return to the South will be a 5-course dinner Monday night at Piedmont Restaurant. This dinner is co-sponsored by BlogTogether, a North Carolina-based community of bloggers. I’ll be going and if I retain any memory of the event, I’ll be sure to report back. I understand there may be a couple of tickets still available, so go here to get more information on this great dinner. Who knows, Ruhlman may even let you kiss his ring.
