For this episode I traveled to the town square in Bardstown, Kentucky and visited Chef Newman Miller at the Harrison-Smith house, a 240 year old structure that now serves as a private event space. You may have seen Chef Miller on season 16 of Top Chef when the popular show visited Maker’s Mark distillery, where Newman serves as chef at Maker’s Star Hill Provisions. Newman was also recently on the SEC Network’s TrueSouth when John T. Edge visited Hodgenville, Kentucky.

Newman and I discuss his time growing up in Washington County, his first job at Louisville’s Brown Hotel, his time in Scotland, and what eventually brought him back to Kentucky. Also, Newman explains the opportunities that exist in Kentucky’s growing food and hospitality scene. Plus we talk about Laha's burgers in Hodgenville, Jake’s 150 Sausage, and how he tries to carry on the legacy of Hooker & Sparky’s fried chicken. I also get Newman—who goes by "bourbon and ham" on social media—to give me his every day recommendations for the bourbon shopper. You may even get some hot brown tips for your own kitchen

And there’s plenty more—you’ll have fun listening to Chef Newman Miller of Star Hill Provisions at Maker’s Mark Distillery.
