I wanted to pass along to you a really unique evening program that we will be offering on Monday, June 5 featuring Michael Twitty, world renowned culinary historian, author, blogger, chef, TED Fellow, Smith Fellow at the Southern Foodways Alliance, and first Revolutionary in Residence at Colonial Williamsburg.
The Frazier Museum is partnering with New Roots, Inc. to bring Michael Twitty to Louisville for a three-day programming series in early June. That series will include public presentations, ticketed dinners, tours of local farms, a visit by Mr. Twitty with students of Lincoln Foundation’s Whitney M. YOUNG Scholars Program®, and presiding as Guest Chef at the grand opening of New Roots’ The Gendler Grapevine Fresh Stop Market @ The Jewish Community Center.
The key Frazier event will be a Farm to Frazier Initiative to begin with a public program by Mr. Twitty on African-Americans’ historical contributions to American food traditions (6:00-7:30pm). Immediately following the program, they will host a ticketed Antebellum Chef-inspired, rooftop dinner with an up close experience Michael Twitty (7:30-9:00pm).
Susan Hershberg of Wiltshire on Market and Wiltshire Pantry, is designing the menu with Michael Twitty, and the Carter Louis Band will provide music. Best of all, a portion of the evening’s proceeds will benefit the Lincoln Foundation. For more information on what should be a spectacular evening, visit the Frazier Musuem’s website!
