Eat It Up aims to provide a space for food enthusiasts and professionals to have a dialogue with some of the drivers of our local food culture, providing the Seacoast community with a view into local and national food culture, with a focus on sustainability, artistry, and innovation. Matt Louis is one of the more decorated Portsmouth chefs, being a James Beard Award semifinalist. Louis worked under famed chef Thomas Keller at The French Laundry and was part of the opening team of Per Se. After, he worked in a number of prestigious kitchens before finding his way to the Seacoast by way of The Wentworth by the Sea, opening Moxy soon after. Louis will present a food-focused talk and talk-back on topics of his choosing, with discussion moderated by host Brian Kelly.
Seacoast Repertory Theater and Eat It Up will donate a portion of all ticket sales to The Chefs Collaborative’s Culinary Sponsorship Program, a non-profit network of chefs dedicated to changing the sustainable food landscape using the power of connections, education and responsible buying decisions.
