Some are whimsical: A Kentucky Breakfast, a steak, a quart of Bourbon and a dog. Give the steak to the dog, drink the Bourbon, to the very serious requiring some cooking skill to prepare. The majority are "normal" recipes that will not tax your skills or drive you crazy.
The first chapter is drinks. The next four chapters are Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. A short introduction talks about seasonal events, the process of creating Bourbon and growing corn. Recipes supporting the season covering soups, main dishes, sides and deserts follow this. This is a cookbook first, last and always. This is not a tour of Kentucky or a love of Bourbon book. This book is a look at how to use Bourbon to produce tasty dishes.
My question is do I want to take what I enjoy drinking for cooking?
My handicapped son took his plate of food and dessert and headed up to watch the football game. When he came down with empty plates I asked him how he liked it. He smiled and gave me thumbs up and told me it was a bomb. Alot of the recipes are shared with Schmit by fellow chefs. You can have your bourbon and eat it too.
My youngest daughter attended the culinary school where Chef Schmid teaches, and was honored to be asked by him to create a few of the recipes out of the book for the photoshoot. So I was a little biased in chosing this item, but it's so unique and impressive. I was already familiar with some of the dishes from various restaurants and actually having the recipe is wonderful.
This is a cookbook of comfort foods with a kick. Even if you don't like bourbon, don't be afraid to try these dishes. It will be unlike anything you've tasted before! The bread pudding and bbq sauce are amazing! Enjoy!
