Raleigh' s Leader for All BY CONNIE GENTRY / PHOTOGRAPHY BY DARIN MEYER
en days before her June wedding, the most notable chef in the country made time to sit down with us and talk about things of note in our city— the conversations we should be having, the opportunities and challenges on our plate.

But she’s also a genuine and down-to-earth individual who is intent on making this community the best it can be for everyone—all of us. And her emphasis is on all.
