While best known for its signature drink offerings such as bourbon, wine, and the famous Kentucky Derby mint julep, the Bluegrass State is also home to a number of innovative food dishes and a hearty culinary heritage including the Kentucky hot brown, Kentucky burgoo, Kentucky BBQ, and of course, Kentucky Fried Chicken. Maybe no other state can lay claim to the extensive amount of flavor-shaping culinary creativity and history as the state of Kentucky. Today that inspiration can be seen in unique dining establishments all over the state. Dine at a horse track and watch morning thoroughbred workouts over eggs. Experience white table cloth restaurants where the surrounding art is as provocative as the entrees are inventive. And find local favorites such as hot browns and Kentucky burgoo in nostalgic cafes along scenic bluegrass routes.
