3CUPS founder Lex Alexander is pleased to bring friend and fellow food entrepreneur Ari Weinzweig to the Triangle this holiday season.
On December 9th, 3CUPS will host Weinzweig for a unique discussion about bacon, paired with champagnes selected by 3CUPS’ Wine Director Jay Murrie. James Beard award-winning Ari Weinzweig will read and sign his newest book, “Zingerman’s Guide to Better Bacon,” in which he details bacon’s long and curious history, “and takes you right to the smokehouse door of some of his favorite bacon curers in the US.”
As Weinzweig explains, “Bacon is integral to the culinary history of this country; the roots are so deep in our cooking…I think of bacon as the olive oil of North America.”
Longtime friend Lex Alexander said, “Ari is an amazing resource. He is an inspired writer/teacher because he’s the most devoted student of authentic food I have ever met. He’s been an inspiration to me through the years; I’m excited to introduce him and his newest book to our customers at 3CUPS.”
This celebratory 3CUPS ‘social’ pairing French champagnes with bacon will begin at 7 p.m. Guests will enjoy an informal discussion and reading with Ari Weinzweig, and may purchase “Zingerman’s Guide to Better Bacon” for $29.99. The champagnes will also be available for sale following the event.
