The Cookery Front Room

Posted by DID 4 Sep 2012 2 Comments

The Cookery, the home (aka commissary kitchen) for some of our favorite food trucks, has converted part of their building into an event space called The Front Room.

From their site, “The Front Room will serve as a venue for The Cookery’s series of pop-up restaurants, specialty food shows, Culinary Workshops, private dinners and receptions, and a myriad of other creative endeavors that are just waiting to be developed.”

On September 15, from noon-3 pm they will open their doors and block the street for a celebration of this new venture. Our favorite local NPR host Fank Stasio and Rue Cler’s chef, Aaron Benjamin, will be there serving up sausages. There will be live music (Justin Robinson and the Mary Annettes), beer and wine. And of course, there will be food trucks (Chirba Chirba, Monuts, The Parlour, Pie Pushers, Sympathy for the Deli and Triangle Raw Food). The event is raising funds for the Durham Crisis Response Center to help update their kitchen.

    Thanks for being interested in what we’re up to CD! We hope everyone will come out and celebrate with us as we unveil a new space that we hope will be a place for community engagement in local food. We have been overwhelmed by all the support, so come out and see Frank, Justin, and Aaron, as well as drink beers with your favorite brewers! Fullsteam, Lonerider, Triangle and BCBB will all be there sampling their delicious beers, and yes, we are closing down Chapel Hill St so bring everyone you know!

    And I hope that everyone walks a few blocks down Chapel Hill Street after this event is over! CenterFest, Durham’s largest outdoor arts festival, is returning to the heart of downtown Durham and will be bigger and better than ever, which 130 artists, 63 performers on five stages, non-profit booths, a creative community exposition, plenty of food, kids zones, and more! This will be a great weekend for Durham!
