We couldn’t help giving you a sneak peak…


I can never say enough good things about my good friends Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton… Just about everyone knows them from their books, The Canal House Cooking series (I should say, the award-winning series!).

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of being lucky enough to taste some of their delicious creations you’ll know why my mouth is already watering in anticipation.

Well, it turns out that I was able to convince them to come down to Kentucky and be our very special guest chefs at the cocktail party we are hosting at Botherum on the night before the Governor’s Mansion LIFE+STYLE event… and boy did they put together an amazing menu!


Bulleit Bourbon Cocktail
Bubbly Water
White Wine

Delicious bites: 

Pimiento Cheese on Saltines
Stuffed Eggs with Asparagus
Fried Chicken with Watermelon Pickle
Shrimp Cocktail
Peanut Butter, Bacon & Bourbon Jelly
Grilled Cheese & Chutney
Endive with Gorgonzola Dolce & Toasted Walnuts
Candied Bacon

Looks delicious, right?!?

Now, I hate to say it but we’re close to SOLD OUT for this event… just a few tickets are left and in order to come to the cocktail party, you need to add it on as an option when you purchase your ticket to the Governor’s Mansion event… if you hurry, you might be the lucky few to get in on this really great party!

P.S. I wanted to mention that there will be live jazz performed by the amazing Chris Comer Trio from Cincinnati, Ohio (they were a big hit at our recent bourbon tasting event at the Cincinnati Flower Show)! So what could be better than great food, great music and great people on a Friday night? See you there!
