Once thought to be only the tipple of southern gentlemen and the companion of confederate roughnecks, bourbon has gained a steady resurgence in popularity over the years with an ever-expanding and diverse audience. A beverage distilled almost exclusively in Kentucky, bourbon has attained prominence and appreciation for its complexity, history, and tradition.
In The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook, Albert Schmid provides readers with the best recipes for every course using the famous spirit of the Bluegrass. From classic Kentucky cocktails such as the Mint Julep, to bourbon inspired desserts, such as Bourbon-Pecan Crème Brulée with Chocolate Sauce, and more savory fare, such as Steaks with Bourbon Ginger Sauce, Schmid gives a lesson on the flavors that best pair with and enhance the flavor of bourbon.
The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook is much more than a step-by-step cookbook. Schmid recounts bourbon lore, food traditions, and Kentucky history, giving readers a full appreciation of America’s native spirit.
Albert Schmid has worked as an executive chef and currently teaches at Sullivan University’s National Center for Hospitality Studies. He lives in Louisville, Kentucky and is the author of The Hospitality Manager’s Guide to Wines, Beers and Spirits, which is now in its second edition.
