Burgoo, Barbecue, and Bourbon

A Kentucky Culinary Trinity

Burgoo, barbecue, and bourbon have long been acknowledged as a trinity of good taste in Kentucky. Known as the gumbo of the Bluegrass, burgoo is a savory stew that includes meat—usually smoked—from at least one "bird of the air" and one "beast of the field," plus as many vegetables as the cook wants to add. Often you'll find this dish paired with one of the Commonwealth's other favorite exports, bourbon, and the state's distinctive barbecue.

Award-winning author and chef Albert W. A. Schmid serves up a feast for readers in Burgoo, Barbecue, and Bourbon, sharing recipes and lore surrounding these storied culinary traditions. He introduces readers to new and forgotten versions of favorite regional dishes from the time of Daniel Boone to today and uncovers many lost recipes, such as Mush Biscuits and Half Moon Fried Pies. He also highlights classic bourbon drinks that pair well with burgoo and barbecue, including Moon Glow, Bourbaree, and the Hot Tom and Jerry. Featuring cuisine from the early American frontier to the present day, this entertaining book is filled with fascinating tidbits and innovative recipes for the modern cook.

Reviews

"Albert W. A. Schmid is the Dean of Kentucky Cuisine. His meticulous, and thoroughly accessible, scholarship about Kentucky's historic and contemporary foodways is unparalleled. Burgoo, Barbecue, and Bourbon should be in every library devoted to American cooking and food history."—Susan Reigler, author of Kentucky Bourbon Country: The Essential Travel Guide and Kentucky Sweet & Savory

"Schmid shines on burgoo and bourbon. Side dishes and breads flesh out the concept."—Wes Berry, author of The Kentucky Barbecue Book

"Whether you're in the mood for a drink before dinner, a new side to spice up an old stand-by dish or looking to put on a fully Kentucky dinner party from start to finish, Burgoo, Barbecue & Bourbon has you covered. It's an outstanding example of how culture and cuisine come together to define a region and the importance of one to the other. This makes it more than just a cookbook, but rather a slice of Kentucky's history and maybe just a pinch of the state's culinary future."—Bowling Green Daily News

"The book mixes fascinating facts with primitive and contemporary recipes for those who like both the 'how' and the 'why.' It's truly a well-balanced, piping-hot masterpiece prepared by a chef who wants to share his passion for the bluegrass state with the world."—The Alcohol Professor
