Partnership to bring new experience for viewers this Spring
Now in its 11th year, Secrets of Louisville Chefs is partnering with Bourbon Barrel Foods and Mint Julep Tours to give the show a new look and feel; and to give viewers a brand new foodie experience.
The show has moved its production to the new Kitchen Studio at Bourbon Barrel Foods in front of a live audience. The show will be taped in a bistro-like setting which is limited to 24 guests. Each taping includes two episodes with two different top local chefs. Guests will get an up-close and personal view of the cooking action, and they will get to sample the creations of the chefs immediately following the show. Tickets for the show are $50 and will be exclusively sold through Mint Julep Tours online: http://mintjuleptours.com beginning today.
In addition, Mint Julep tours hopes to extend the experience for viewers who purchase tickets to the show by offering tours of distilleries, a mixology course, and tours of local farms where featured chefs grow fresh foods. Other packages and touring options will be available this summer.
“We are thrilled to be able to partner with the Secrets of Louisville Chef’s team and Bourbon Barrel Foods to bring local foods into a new culinary experience,” said Sean Higgins, Chief Fun Officer at Mint Julep Tours, “we are also excited about the opportunity this brings to offer culinary tourism to the Louisville community and we will be expanding on this focus in the coming months.”
Tim Laird and Kevin Harned are the hosts of Secrets of Louisville Chefs. The popular TV series airs on WAVE-3 at 11am on Sundays and on WBNA-21 at 6pm weeknights. Episodes are also available for viewing on line 24/7 at NewLocalTV.com.
“The gorgeous new state-of-the-art Kitchen Studio at Bourbon Barrel Foods will allow us to upgrade the Secrets of Louisville Chefs on-air product, as well as the studio audience experience,” said Dan Davidsaver, Associate Producer. “We can’t wait to turn on the burners and get cooking!”
Upcoming tapings are scheduled for May 10: featuring Gary’s on Spring chef, Harold Baker, and Jeff Bridges from Bourbons Bistro; and June 7: featuring the chef from Brasserie Provence and another amazing local chef to be announced at a later date.
