What started as a weekend of getting drunk, betting on horses, and meeting girls has become a 10 year journey into Southern cuisine and culture. Originally from New York, Chef Edward Lee has embraced Louisville and Louisville has embraced him. Lee understands the rich Southern traditions and incorporates them into his cooking.
And it does not hurt that bourbon is a part of that tradition! Lee takes us to meet Julian Van Winkle of the famed Old Rip Van Winkle, aka Pappy Van Winkle, bourbon and we see where the magic happens at Buffalo Trace distillery. Lee’s cooking brings people together as witnessed at his BBQ and bourbon gathering. Enjoy!
