This episode’s guest is someone many of you are familiar with from Bravo’s Top Chef Season 16, which featured Kentucky locations and ingredients.

Chef Sara Bradley operates the Freight House in Paducah, Kentucky, a farm to table restaurant that also features one of the top rated bourbon bars in the country.

Sara discusses her busy travel schedule, the fun of being a new mom, and her decision to pursue the culinary arts after finishing UK. Plus, Sara pulls back the curtain on being on Top Chef, the pressure she felt as the hometown chef in season 16, and why she turned down a spot on the new Top Chef season. Sara also shares her favorite bourbon picks and how pregnancy has expanded her palate to include a new spirit that’s not from Kentucky.

All that, and why she never wanted to move back to Paducah, but now says it’s “Paducah forever!”
