Louisville’s Lawrence Weeks to serve as Chef-in-Residence at 2018 Appalachian Writers’ Workshop

Lawrence Weeks dedicated his heart to cooking as a child growing up in a southern creole/cajun household. After culinary school Weeks, seized the opportunity to gain experience under award-winning chef, Todd Richards, at The Pig and The Pearl in Atlanta, where Richards encouraged Weeks to “find his roots in food.” After moving back to Louisville, Weeks started LocalsOnly: a Louisville pop up which quickly gained regional traction in the Louisville/Lexington area. Through years of study in southern foodways and culture, Weeks presents in a way that tells a story and evokes memories through his food.

Weeks will prepare and serve a dinner honoring the 2018 Miller/Still Keynote Presenter, Nikki Giovanni. Tickets to share dinner on Friday, July 27, are $20; Ms. Giovanni’s presentation is free and open to the public.
