#205 My Old Kentucky Home
It's a beautiful part of the country, and a tasty one too! From the elegant Kentucky cuisine of Jim Gehardt to the whimsical offerings of Lynn Winter at Lynn's Paradise café, Kentuckiana offers something for everyone. And, what would a visit to Kentucky be without a little bit of bourbon? In this case, it's the historic Labrot and Graham distillery, makers of Woodford Reserve, perhaps the best bourbon around.
