“Chef in a Box”

A Delicious and Easy Way to Help those Who Serve You!

In an effort to continue supporting Louisville’s food and beverage professionals, we have come up with an idea that we think Louisville will love.


Chef in a Box

APRON Inc. introduced Louisville Chef in a Box on August 5, a weekly program, where folks pick up a tasting or surprise from an acclaimed local restaurant, packed conveniently to enjoy at home.  Each Chef in a Box could contain a signature dish, a possible gift certificate, promotional swag, or even a possible “Surprise” in a Box! The Box will cost $50; half of the proceeds will go to support the restaurant, and half to support APRON Inc.’s efforts.

Please keep coming back-we will soon put up contact and pick up information for the restaurants, and also a list of what the bag from each will contain.

“Chef in a Box” is in Memory of Chef Dean Corbett and his constant commitment to the Local Restaurant Community and Non-Profit Organizations as well as being one of the Founding Fathers of Apron Inc.
