Kentucky by Way of Ireland: An Evening with Michael Reidy

Kentucky by Way of Ireland: An Evening with Michael Reidy

The Frazier’s supper series weaves a narrative about food using live personal stories and conversations between Kentucky chefs and Robert Bleifer, Executive Chef & Vice President of Culinary at the Food Network.

Michael Reidy was born in Kilmihil, Co. Clare, Ireland.  Upon graduation he moved to New York, met his future wife and later moved to Kentucky,  where his gregarious nature destined him to open Louisville’s first Irish pub.  To that end, Michael started at the bottom of the local restaurant industry and began working his way up the ladder, eventually opening The Irish Rover. His efforts to introduce the joys of Irish pub culture to Louisville were successful, and the business is now in its 25th year. Michael is as gregarious and delightful as you would expect an Irish pub owner to be. He also has been intentional to remind us that he (like Guy and Roni before him) is not a trained chef, but rather oversees a menu that blends his Irish roots with a Kentucky spirit.

Appetizer Course: A flight of three whiskey products served with Smoked Salmon and Irish Brown Bread 

Main Course: Lamb Stuffed Cabbage, beverage will be choice of Red Ale or house wine  

Dessert: Eton Mess  


General Admission: $125 | Frazier Members $115

"The Artistry of 20th Century Jewelry Design: Verdura and Belperron” by Ward Landrigan, Verdura Chairman and CEO
