Catch Jeremy Fox on his 2017 tour

The author of On Vegetables will visit five cities in North America next month. Will one of them be yours?

For a chef so renowned for his vegetable cookery, Jeremy Fox doesn’t put down roots easily. The author of our new book On Vegetables was born in Ohio; grew up in Atlanta; learned to love restaurants by visiting his maternal grandparents’ pizzeria in Chattanooga, Tennessee; began his working career in Charleston, South Carolina; and made his name in California. So, we can safely assume a five-city North American tour, will be a breeze for the acclaimed chef.
