Ashley English Week at Rhubarb!!!

Rhubarb-asheville
If I had to sum up my overarching life mantra in one sentence, it would likely be “Follow the Golden Rule.” That is, treat other people the way you want to be treated. Glenn and I truly believe this and we say it to Huxley all time. Every day, almost, it seems. Let your behavior towards other people reflect the way you ultimately want to be treated. It is why I let other people merge into traffic in front of me, why Glenn and I try to be as generous with our time and resources as we can, and why we both promote businesses and enterprises when neither of us has anything direct to gain from them.

Sometimes, what you put out is returned. What goes around truly comes around. That recently happened for me with Rhubarb. Imagine your favorite restaurant. Your special place, the one you go to for big occasions, like birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day. THE place you turn to, time and again, because the food is sensational, the service is stellar, and the mission is one you’re on board with. That’s Rhubarb for Glenn and I. I’ve mentioned here before how much we love the place. Well, a few weeks ago, I received an email from Rhubarb, turning the love back in my direction.

I cannot begin to tell you how ecstatic I am to announce Rhubarb‘s offer of an “Ashley English Week.” That’s right. Week! It’ll start with a Sunday Supper December 14th featuring recipes from my books (I gifted the restaurant with all 7 of them this past Saturday). I’ll also be doing a book signing that night. Then, on December 18th, R Bar, Rhubarb’s lovely bar situated directly beside the dining rooms, will feature a list of beverages curated by me from Quench. They’ll be offering their “Tot-Tine” that night as well, which is a tater tot version of the famous Canadian dish poutine (essentially fried potatoes, gravy, and cheese).

Come join us, won’t you? I’ll be meeting with chef John Fleer and Ellie Wigodsky at the restaurant next week, to hammer out the menus. In the meantime, go ahead and put it on your planner! Hire a babysitter (or better, yet, bring the little ones with you to Sunday Supper!)! If you’ve been wanting to try out Rhubarb but haven’t, now is the time.

I mean, c’mon. How amazing is this?!!! Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine that a restaurant that I adore, that just celebrated its 1-year anniversary, that is being touted in the pages of Southern Living and Garden & Gun, would love me and what I do in exchange. That the recipes that Glenn and I developed and tested and re-tested and tweaked in our home kitchen would be served in a restaurant run by a chef named one of the “Rising Stars of the 21st Century” by the James Beard Foundation and listed as a three-time finalist for the James Beard “Best Chef in the Southeast” award? Who would’ve ever guessed that my patronage of a restaurant so seriously deserving of every accolade would want to celebrate me, too? The Golden Rule, y’all. It’s the only way to fly.
