I'm planning an RV trip Kentucky to do some history research but I'm also a foodie. I want to find restaurants, mainly for lunch, that serve traditional Kentucky fare. But because of the RV I'll be cooking as well and I like treats, such as local cheeses, wines, cured meats, fresh meat and poultry, vegetables, especially those not usually available elsewhere, such as rapes. I'm particularly interested in Bardstown, Danville, Covington, Louisville. But, I'm flexible because I don't know where my research will lead.
I'm fussy about food in that it must tasty and well-made. I'm fussy about raw materials in that they must be well-tended and fresh (except for beef which must be well-aged). But beyond that I'm open.
While I don't believe that this new movement called sustainable agriculture will ever succeed in feeding our nation, I do believe that it will raise the bar so I support it. Over time the the big growers will be forced to change their practices. So I'd like to find local farmers.
