Advance praise for The Bourbon Country Cookbook

"When the first Saturday in May rolls around and you begin to long for a taste of that Old Kentucky home you may or may not hail from, but surely do revere, The Bourbon Country Cookbook is here to help take you home. Farm fresh and artisanal aren't trends in the bluegrass state, but a long-established way of life. Add the resonant ring of the finest American distillation--Kentucky bourbon--as these brilliant chefs do, and you've created magnificence and memories. In fact, the recipes, stories, and photographs here are so fine, you won't want to wait for a horse race, but use this book year 'round. After all, it's always a fine time to eat and drink in Bourbon Country." --Ronni Lundy, author of Victuals: An Appalachian Journey, with Recipes, winner of the 2017 James Beard Awards for Best American Cookbook and Book of the Year

"A book that will stand as one of the most essential cookbooks in the history of Southern cuisine." --Edward Lee, chef and author of Smoke and Pickles

"The ultimate guide to modern Southern entertaining." --The Bourbon Review

"Generous Southern hospitality and reverence for the rich, deep history of the food and drink of the rolling bluegrass hills of Kentucky are at the heart of The Bourbon Country Cookbook. Packed with entertaining tips, a host of traditional and contemporary recipes, and evocative photographs of the region and its food, this is more than a simple cookbook; The Bourbon Country Cookbook is a bible on entertaining." --Virginia Willis, James Beard Award-winning cookbook author and chef

"This book captures the beauty and pageantry of the Derby and the surrounding Kentucky Bourbon Country. After living in Louisville for seven years, I always get wistful the first weekend in May, no matter where I happen to be. Now I can grab this great cookbook and take my annual Derby party to the next level." --Jerry Slater, restaurateur and coauthor of The Southern Foodways Alliance Guide to Cocktails

"When people ask me what American cuisine is, I say we have many different regional cuisines. Danielson and Laird's book is a perfect example of a famous and specific area with its Derby and Bourbon Country traditions, culture, food, and cocktails. This book is a great guide for planning a festive and spirited party." --Elizabeth Falkner, chef and author of Cooking Off the Clock

"This book radiates Kentucky cuisine better than any book I have read. I am inspired by these dishes, and the bourbon cocktail chapter is amazing!" --Rick Tramonto, executive chef, Tramonto Cuisine
