Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In his latest, chef and instructor Schmid (The Hospitality Manager's Guide to Wines, Beers and Spirits) presents a collection of seasonal bourbon-based recipes with impressive breadth and depth. Whiskey lovers can start their day with Kentucky Bourbon Pancakes (which, when combined with Blueberry Kentucky Bourbon Syrup, call for a formidable 2 cups of bourbon); lunch on a Wilted Spinach Salad with a sweet and sour orange dressing (generously spiked with a half cup of bourbon); tuck into Chicken with Mustard Honey Kentucky Bourbon Sauce and Kentucky Bourbon Acorn Squash for dinner; and end the day with a slice of fruitcake-like Kentucky Bourbon Cake. Using a combination of sourced, modified and original recipes, Schmid showcases bourbon's versatility; the liquor's inherent sweetness makes it a natural for bread pudding, pecan pie and barbecue sauce, and it's these flavors and applications that dominate, along with standard libations like the Manhattan and Mint Julep. Those with a taste for this uniquely American spirit will find a wealth of possibilities.

Aram Bakshian's review in the Wall Street Journal (May 8-9, 2020)is favorable enough for me to order 2 copies. A convincing line is "As with most good home cooking, the emphasis is not on the paistaking or exotic but on easy prep and easy eating".

Format: Hardcover
"Bourbon is a kind of whiskey." Is the first line of chapter one. While true, Bourbon is a distinct taste and something that people either like or won't touch. I have enjoyed Bourbon most of my life, many times being the only one to drink it. This book says Bourbon is for cooking as well as drinking. The author makes a very good case with a series of recipes that will cover your table with food.
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?

I received this as a gift and love the variety of recipes and the tried and true nature of them. I also like the way that the recipes are organized by season so that I can make use of fresh seasonal ingredients, and not only think of using bourbon as an ingredient for a winter dish. Reading through the recipes I am inspired to give them a try and incorporate bourbon dishes throughout the year. The only time I have ever used bourbon as an ingredient is for a decadent bourbon chocolate sauce for a scrumptious chocolate bread pudding, and so I am looking forward to going beyond a limited dessert selection and adding bourbon to other courses.

The first night I fixed the bourbon marinaded chicken and stir fried it with pineapple and other ingredients and served it over brown rice. I also made the pumpkin bourbon pie with bourbon, brown sugar, pecan sauce and topped the slices with a dollop of whipped cream.
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.
