Diving deep into our city’s food culture, a new supper series at the Frazier History Museum pairs lively local culinary figures with fabulous food and rarified, history-drenched ambiance. Dinner anyone?

It’s another smart, un-stuffy move by the history museum that’s on a mission to engage the community and create thought-provoking experiences for visitors and locals alike. As a tribute to our state’s rich and varied culinary traditions, late this spring Frazier CEO Penelope Peavler launched Farm to Frazier: A Kentucky Supper Series, sponsored by Kroger. The series offers a way to weave a narrative about food and initiate lively conversations between the people behind our culinary scene and those of us who eat their food.

Featured culinary experts have ranged from the female chefs of Appalachia to August Moon’s Peng Looi to Irish Rover’s owner Michael Reidy, this month. Their unique perspectives on both the local dining scene and their personal cultures tend to generate lively discourse enhanced by delicious menus. Reidy, who came to Louisville from Ireland and started as a bus boy who later went on to open one of our most popular and heralded Irish pubs, is sure to bring his brand of memorable commentary to a fun and feisty summer evening out.


Kentucky by Way of Ireland: An Evening with Michael Reidy will take place on Thursday, July 26, 6:30 to 8:30. General admission is $125; Frazier member admission is $115. For information and tickets for this and other suppers, go to fraziermuseum.org/farm2frazier
