We had a wonderful time hosting Wedding Studio Alliance last week. We had 3 wedding studios from Tennessee and 1 from Cincinnati. We wanted to share with them some of our favorite KY food traditions. Below are some snapshots from my phone of the food from Gourmet Goodies by Thelma. We also had Ale-8-One to drink!
Benedictine Sandwiches – Benedictine is a condiment made with cucumber and cream cheese. It was invented around the 20th century by Jennie Carter Benedict, a caterer and restaurateur in Louisville.
Mini Hot Browns – A hot brown sandwich is a hot sandwich created at the Brown Hotel in Louisville in 1926. It was created to serve as an alternative to ham and egg late-night suppers.
Chicken Salad Wan Tons – Gourmet Goodies chicken salad may be the best you ever eat!
