You want my Bourbon for what?
"Bourbon is a kind of whiskey." Is the first line of chapter one. While true, Bourbon is a distinct taste and something that people either like or won't touch. I have enjoyed Bourbon most of my life, many times being the only one to drink it. This book says Bourbon is for cooking as well as drinking. The author makes a very good case with a series of recipes that will cover your table with food.
Some are whimsical: A Kentucky Breakfast, a steak, a quart of Bourbon and a dog. Give the steak to the dog, drink the Bourbon, to the very serious requiring some cooking skill to prepare. The majority are "normal" recipes that will not tax your skills or drive you crazy.
The first chapter is drinks. The next four chapters are Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. A short introduction talks about seasonal events, the process of creating Bourbon and growing corn. Recipes supporting the season covering soups, main dishes, sides and deserts follow this. This is a cookbook first, last and always. This is not a tour of Kentucky or a love of Bourbon book. This book is a look at how to use Bourbon to produce tasty dishes.
My question is do I want to take what I enjoy drinking for cooking?
