Farm to Frazier: A Kentucky Supper Series        

Farm to Frazier Sponsors 2018-01-01.jpg

Kentucky has a bigger variety of food traditions than any other state — excluding, of course, Louisiana! The Frazier’s new four-program 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. Join us as we take a look at how cooking shapes our world.

The supper series complements the Frazier’s burgeoning role in Bourbon tourism: In 2018 the Kentucky Bourbon Trail ® Welcome Center & Spirit of Kentucky Exhibit are set to open at the Frazier Museum, which has been designated the “Official Starting Point of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail ® Experiences.” Farm to Frazier: a Kentucky Supper Series is Proudly sponsored by Kroger and Kentucky Proud, and in Partnership with the
Metro Louisville Office for Globalization.

An Evening with Female Chefs of Appalachia
March 22, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
General Admission: $125 | Frazier Members $115


Gather ‘round the table in support of Appalachian foodways with a four course family-style meal from Ronni Lundy, the James Beard Book of the Year Award-winning author of the cookbook Victuals; Annie Pettry, owner of Decca and contestant on Top Chef season 14; and Kristin Smith, a sixth generation family farmer, chef, and co-owner of the Wrigley Taproom & Brewery in Corbin, Kentucky.

Appalachian Food Summit is a group committed to supporting the Appalachia region by honoring its past, remembering its present, and promoting a sustainable future for its food and its people. Partial proceeds from the evening will support the Summit's work. Prepare for a journey along the many routes our mountain families have traveled as we celebrate the diverse origins and savory pleasures of Appalachian foodways.

This event in the series is in partnership with Appalachian Food Summit.

Kentucky by Way of Malaysia:
An Evening with Peng Looi
May 31, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
General Admission: $125 | Frazier Members $115

Malaysia’s cuisine blends local elements with some borrowed
from around Southeast Asia. This multicultural fusion had a big impact on Peng S. Looi, part-owner and executive chef at
August Moon Chinese Bistro. The first Asian chef to receive the Jefferson Evans Award for Chef of the Year, Peng has been a master chef at World Gourmet Summits in Las Vegas and Dubai. He first moved to Louisville to attend the J.B. Speed Scientific School.
