Taste the best of Southern cocktails and cuisine

The city of Louisville’s culinary scene garners world-wide recognition. Local chefs are known for innovative takes on Southern food, exploring international flavors and utilizing Kentucky’s rich agricultural bounty.

Plan a custom food tour full of Kentucky staples like bourbon balls, Hot Browns and mint juleps for your group. Or explore how top Louisville chefs and bartenders put Kentucky on the map with tasting dinners, chef’s table experiences or mixology classes.




Secrets of Bluegrass Chefs (formerly known as Secrets of Louisville Chefs) is a live TV-show taped in Louisville. Watch as chefs from local restaurants cook their signature dishes and taste the best bites. Tapings take place in a kitchen studio at Bourbon Barrel Foods in Louisville’s Butchertown neighborhood. 

Upcoming tapings are planned for:

Each progressive food and cocktail tour in the Southern Supper Series explores eclectic neighborhoods, hidden gems and top chef’s creations from around the city. Guests visit three destinations for a course paired with a crafted cocktail at each stop, all based on a common theme.
