While Mint Julep Tours is certainly dedicated to all different kinds of tours focused on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, we also offer some other amazing exclusive experiences that surely won’t disappoint. One of those events is the chance to be a part of the live studio audience for the filming of the popular television show Secrets of Louisville Chefs.
You’ll join us in Kitchen Studio at Bourbon Barrel Foods located in historic Butchertown where you will see two show tapings as Louisville’s top chefs cook with Tim Laird, Brown-Forman’s Chief Entertaining Officer and Kevin Harned, WAVE 3 TV Chief Meteorologist. You will have reserved VIP seats along with a champagne cocktail meet-and-greet with the hosts and producers of the show. At the conclusion of the show, you will be able to sample food that the chefs have prepared.
The featured chefs for August are Dustin Staggers of The Monkey Wrench and Dallas McGarity of Marketplace Restaurant. For a little bit of background on Chef Dustin Staggers, he has been at The Monkey Wrench since November of last year and was brought in to remake the menu with his creative take on Southern cuisine. It was also recently announced that Staggers will be co-opening “Roux” with his brother in the former Le Gallo Rosso space on Bardstown Rd. Roux will be a New Orleans style restaurant serving classic New Orleans dishes. Chef Dallas McGarity came to Louisville in 2004 working as a sous chef at Volare Restaurant and quickly moved up the food scene working at local favorites including Equus & Jack’s Lounge. In 2010, Dallas became Executive Chef/Partner at Marketplace Restaurant and continues to be heavily involved in the local culinary scene and many charitable organizations.
