Savor Kentucky Cuisine

While maybe best known for its signature drink offerings (see bourbon, wine country 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.

Popular Kentucky cuisine includes the hot brown, Kentucky burgoo, famous 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 Kentucky cuisine and 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.
