EAT IT UP: FOOD TALKS! to Take the Stage at Seacoast Rep, Beg. 7/28

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. The goal of the series is to provide the Seacoast community a look into local and national food culture with a focus on sustainability, artistry, and innovation. Eat It Up aims to provide a space for food enthusiasts and professionals to experience the passion of each speaker in an interactive and intimate setting.

Each event will feature a guest speaker who will present a 30-45 minute food-focused talk and talk-back on a topic of the speaker's choosing. The series will occur once monthly starting Monday, July 28 at 7:30, and will run monthly through December 2014.

"We think the Seacoast has a want and a need for this kind of educational engagement with the food community," says Mallett. "We really want this to be a community resource as much as it is an entertainment event."

The show will be co-produced by Evan Mallett of Black Trumpet, Brian Kelly and Kathleen Cavalaro of eight/one productions, and Knate Higgins of the Seacoast Repertory Theatre. Kelly will host the events, with Mallett as the first guest. Other guests will include Gregg Sessler of Cava, Matt Louis of Moxy, Evan Hennessey of Stages at One Washington, and Mark Segal of Demeter's Steakhouse.

Seacoast Repertory Theater and Eat It Up will donate a portion of all ticket sales to The Chefs Collaborative, a non-profit network of chefs dedicated to changing the sustainable food landscape using the power of connections, education and responsible buying decisions.

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.

VIP reception at 6:30pm. VIP tickets are $40 and include an exclusive meet and greet featuring personalized hor d'oeuvres with Chef Mallett with ingredients provided by Dole & Bailey, a pairing generously donated by Smuttynose Brewery, and priority seating. General Admission tickets are $12 and include the Smuttynose pairing as well. All Industry Workers who provide proof of employment in the industry ( i.e. paystub, etc.) will be given "Pay-What-You-Want" tickets. Industry tickets are available day of show only and are subject to availability. VIP Tickets are limited to 60, seating is limited and due to high demand, advance purchase is recommended.

Tickets may be purchased online at, in person at 125 Bow Street Portsmouth, NH 03801, or over the phone at 603.433.4472.
