Epicurious Louisville

Louisville Kentucky is a treasure trove of amazing eats. I blog about them here. Y'all pull up a chair and sit awhile.

neste-r asked: A little while ago you mentioned going to a shop called Savon in... New Albany, I think? You compared it to Lush. I was just wondering how the prices compared to Lush!

Savon is more affordable than Lush. It’s not Walmart cheap, but I’ve learned that if you want quality ingredients in your body products you gotta spring some cash. 

You should go! It’s awesome. 

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.”

Y’all have a wonderful, fantastic, easy-going labor day. 

The bison burger at Proof on Main. It’s totally delicious. Their fries are also MONEY.

I recently when on a Woodford Reserve tour/tasting for Thrillist, and boy was it worth the drive. The double-oaked Woodford Reserve was beyond amazing and I want to buy a bottle and drink it at home. And I very rarely drink at home, so that should tell you how incredibly good it was.

Tea at Ghyslain Bistros is pretty much a production. I love it when places give you extra hot water for your tea, especially since most places give you like WAY too much tea for just one cup. 
Ghyslain is one of the restaurants participating in Idea Festival’s Taste of Innovation, Wednesday October 1st. Tickets are $40 right now, and believe me, it’s totally worth it: we’re talking two hours of unlimited food and spirits from some of Kentuckiana’s very best and most innovative restaurants, bars, bistros, and caterers.

Little known fact: when you’re besties with a food blogger you pretty much have to wait to eat anything until the mini photoshoot is done. Sorry, Tipsy. 

It’s so beautiful it doesn’t seem real.

chairman-meow-and-cat-benatar asked: Originally it was Pita Delites, but it either got sold or got rebranded. They updated the interior and reopened as Zad a few months ago. Their falafel is pretty amazing too.

I haven’t had a chance to go! Thanks for the tip!
