Eco-chef/activist/author Bryant Terry to speak at University of Louisville Thursday

I hadn’t heard of Chef Bryant Terry before I learned he was coming to speak at University of Louisville this week.

His interests and beliefs are impressive enough to make me want to learn more.

He calls himself an eco-chef, meaning he believes in sustainability and universal access to sustainable food. He created a non-profit to help young people learn and develop healthy eating habits. And he has a couple of cookbooks under his belt.

As I mentioned earlier, Terry will discuss access to healthful foods and how to eat well at the Student Activities Center at University of Louisville this Thursday, March 1. This event is part of U of L’s Body Appreciation, Body Awareness Week. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. with music and information tables. Terry’s talk (and cooking demonstration) starts at 6 p.m.

Tickets are $10, but you get in free if you’re a U of L student (lucky!). Learn more about the event and get your tickets here.
