Award-Winning Chef Debuts New Cookbook

Celebrated chef Daniel Orr will be the guest of honor at Proof on Main for a dinner event on Wednesday, August 26 at 6:30 p.m. celebrating the release of his new cookbook FARMfood: Green Living With Chef Daniel Orr (Indiana University Press, 978-0-253-22103-2, $29.95). Chef Orr, who earned three stars from the New York Times as executive chef of La Grenouille before opening his own restaurant in Indiana, is visiting Louisville as part of a national book tour. The cost of the dinner is $95 including wine, tax, gratuity, and a signed copy of chef Orr’s new cookbook. The book will also be available for purchase in Louisville at Carmichael’s, Borders and Barnes and Noble.

Chef Orr will team up with Proof’s chef Michael Paley to present a four-course meal that showcases regional ingredients, including produce raised on Proof’s rooftop garden and at the restaurant garden at Woodland Farms.

“Chef Paley and I share a commitment to the farm-to-table way of cooking,” says chef Orr. “When you know your producers and plan your menu around seasonal ingredients, you create a truly rewarding experience for the guest. Chef Paley and I will be focusing on this philosophy as we create a meal to remember at Proof.”
