Eat It Up: Food Talks with Evan Mallett

The Seacoast's Newest Food Talk Series Kicks Off at The Rep! 

Session #1 with Evan Mallett, Chef/Owner of Black Trumpet July 28th 7:30PM

Eat It Up: Food Talks! will be taking stage as an ongoing series of talks at the Seacoast Repertory Theatre. The series will provide a space for local, regional and national chefs, food writers, brewers, sommeliers, farmers, foragers, and others to showcase their insights into food culture and creation.

Kelly will host the events, with Mallett as the first guest.

The event will feature an exclusive food pairing for VIP ticket holders, as well as a local brew tasting for both VIP and general admission ticketholders.
