Speaker: Caroline Morrison, Chef and Owner, Fiction Kitchen

Join the North Carolina Museum of History as we commemorate Pride Month with this special program with Fiction Kitchen owner Chef Caroline Morrison. She will talk about the challenges she has faced as a female-vegetarian-queer chef throughout her career.

Morrison is a North Carolina native, who discovered her passion for cooking partly out of frustration from being vegetarian in the South. She knew produce was abundant within the region, but dining options seemed lackluster, cursory, and often made from canned or frozen products. This propelled her to change careers, earn her culinary degree from Wake Technical Community College, and begin experimenting with sold-out pop-up events in the Triangle hosted with partner and co-owner Siobhan Southern. Together they opened the Fiction Kitchen in January 2013. Morrison was named a 2019 James Beard Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Fellow. She works closely with other locally and nationally recognized chefs, owners, and operators to constantly challenge and change the industry for the better.
