Culinary Seminars


There are seminars planned all day long.  The culinary seminars are another opportunity to pick up some good tips.  This year’s presenters will entertain audiences with expert tips, starting with breakfast and ending with cocktails.  The Kentucky Heritage Kitchen Stage will be fully programmed with chefs from the Central Kentucky area and featuring locally grown food.  These 20 to 30 minutes seminars are presented in a seated environment that encourage those interested in a particular topic to ask questions and seek practical knowledge that they can use at home.  This year’s seminar topics include baking, cleaning and identifying cast iron (10:00 a.m.); starting a food business and growing a brand (11:00 a.m.); home brewing (noon); the joys of brining starts at 1 p.m. and using the right honey for the right recipe is at 2 p.m.
