For a true sense of place, start first with the book’s Old Kentucky Bourbon Marinade, a recipe for grilled beef, pork, or chicken so versatile that we call it the little black dress of marinades. This junior leaguer is not your mother’s spiral bound but a slick, big-budget affair replete with color photos, a glossy green hard cover, featured chefs, and contributions from folks in the Louisville brown liquor trade. If bourbon’s not your thing, then check out the charming wine guide in the back with phonetic spellings for 26 different grape varietals, including, say it together now, “Sauvignon Blanc (Sow-veen-yonh BLONK).”
