Burgoo >


"I do feel it's a little safer on a Saturday afternoon," said Heather Zeigler, 33, of Clintonville, who brought daughter Sophia, 3, and a friend.
The group watched the Shazzbots, whose lead singer was wearing a sailor hat, sing instructions to "the milkshake dance."
"Put it in the blender, mix it all together," the singer warbled.


And then there is Rep. Jim Glenn of Owensboro, who has tried the past three years to have burgoo named the official state dish of Kentucky. He figures stores and restaurants can hype their burgoo, the same way that Maryland promotes the blue crab, its official state food.
If he's successful, you'll be able to enjoy the official state dish using a spoon from the "Old Kentucky Blue Grass -- The Georgetown" collection, Kentucky's official silverware pattern.

Whether you love burgoo or can’t stand being near it, I hope you have enjoyed reading about this quintessential Kentucky food phenomenon. These days, I don’t miss eating burgoo or any other carnivore delights, but I love vegetarian foods that are supposed to taste like meat.




There are several cool things about this celebration . . .

There will be a Civil War re-enactment. Louisville author and Civil War scholar Brian S Bush will be lecturing and signing books from 1 to 3 PM. Louisville, KY.

Among the food items, there will also be genuine burgoo for sale with proceeds going to to the Bon Air Neighborhood Association. A local chef from one of the hotels who specialized in burgoo will be preparing it.
