Southern Rail to Host James Beard Award-Winning Chef Dan Barber for Dinner and Book Talk


On Tuesday, April 14, Southern Rail and Changing Hands Bookstore will host James Beard Award-Winning Chef Dan Barber for a dinner and book talk in celebration of his first book, The Third Plate.

The event will start at 6:00 pm with a three-course, exclusively Arizona dinner by Chef Justin Beckett that is inspired by The Third Plate ($79 and a signed paperback copy of The Third Plate). After dinner, guests will head next door to Changing Hands for a meet & greet and book talk at 8 pm with Dan Barber ($18).

Chef Dan Barber’s, The Third Plate, includes history of American cuisine from the last two centuries and highlights the concept of having food go from the farm-to-table. Barber has spent more than a decade investigating farming communities around the globe and looking for a definition of ethical and nutritious eating. The Chicago Tribune says that The Third Plate is “Funny, engaging and delicious.” Chef Dan Barber was also appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the President’s Council on Physical Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.
