While many people visit Bowling Green for our caves and Corvettes, it’s our cuisine that we are celebrating in 2018. The Kentucky Department of Tourism declared this the "Year of Kentucky Food", and we thought it was the perfect opportunity to celebrate the flavors that make Bowling Green and Warren County geared for flavors!
Plus, Bowling Green is the home of the original foodie — travel writer and food influencer, Duncan Hines, who was born on March 26, 1880 — so what better way to celebrate his memory than to highlight some of the best restaurants in the area the way he once did in his guidebooks.
But technology, like the food itself, has changed drastically, so we took to video and are happy to introduce our BGKY Eats! Video Series.
Our first episode features Boyce General Store, owned by Brad and Brie Golliher. Listen to Brad discuss the restaurant’s popular pork tenderloin breakfast sandwich and watch as Brie, who is also the Pie Queen of Bowling Green, prepares some of her sweet treats, including a pie that won her the Duncan Hines Baking Contest during the annual festival in his honor.
Later this year, we will introduce visitors and residents to the BGKY Eats Route, inspired by the regional meals the Kentucky Department of Tourism and other entities partnered together to create. Our regional meal focuses on cheeses, pork, farm fresh veggies, cobbler and apple cider.
Area restaurants will be sharing some of their favorite dishes that take inspiration from the regional meal, and we’ll be compiling them on our website, in a brochure, and sharing them on our social media.
We can’t wait to spend 2018 showing you some of the best culinary destinations the Bowling Green area has to offer!
