Esteemed restaurateur, author and multiple James Beard Award-winning chef Dan Barber will make his first-ever Texas appearance during Edible Austin’s seventh annual Eat Drink Local Week, the publication’s annual homage to locally sourced food and restaurants.
Barber will talk about his new book, The Third Plate, Field Notes on the Future of Food, which moves beyond farm-to-table to offer a revolutionary way of eating. Austin-based musician Michael Fracasso will open the evening with an onstage performance before Dan Barber’s talk. Proceeds from the event will support three local area non-profits: the historic Paramount Theatre, Sustainable Food Center and Urban Roots.
