Blind Pig to Pair with Four Roses for 8/15 Bourbon Dinner [Food & Dining]

Print
Four Roses Bourbon

 

Dear lovers of bacon and bourbon,
 
This Wednesday night at 6:30, The Blind Pig is teaming up with Four Roses for a 4-course bourbon dinner! Ingredients from each dish will be infused with the lovely amber liquid and paired with a different Four Roses expression, including Single Barrel, Small Batch, Yellow Label, and an upcoming 2012 Limited Edition Small Batch release. Here is the menu:
 
1st Course
Crispy Pork Belly with Grapefruit-Bourbon Sauce
 
2nd Course
Local Greens, Fresh Peaches, Bourbon-Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette
 
3rd Course
Pork Tenderloin in Bourbon-Ginger Sauce, Mushy Peas, and Candied Carrots
 
4th Course
Bourbon-Brown Sugar Cheesecake
 
 
Four Roses’ Master Distiller, Jim Rutledge, will lead a brief discussion on the history of the company. Known for a signature smooth and mellow taste, Four Roses bourbon is said to have been named for the Southern belle with whom the founder, Paul Jones, Jr., fell in love. Legend has it that he sent her a marriage proposal, and her reply was that if she accepted, she would wear a corsage of roses on her dress at the upcoming ball. When she arrived, she wore 4 roses on her beautiful gown.
 
Established in Butchertown during March of 2010 by the two owners, Executive Chef Joe Frase and Michael Grider, The Blind Pig is a Louisville favorite and a fine example of a gastropub. They specialize in European comfort food with everything prepared in-house, including all smoking, curing, and sausage-making. Joe was recently interviewed in Food & Dining Magazine’s Fall publication (The Bourbon Issue). He’s got a sense of humor that makes me want to pinch his cheeks. Also, he agrees with me that foams look like spit and the trend needs to go. We’re soulmates.
