Experience the South in your mouth with this tasty series! Begin with an appetizer of pimento cheese with toasted bread and boiled peanuts, plus an offering of Old Forrester bourbon to get the class started off right! Burgoo is a hearty stew consisting of chicken, pork, & beef with vegetables such as corn, lima bean, okra, tomatoes & potatoes in a barbeque-like broth. The name itself was likely from a mispronunciation of bird stew ad barbecue. The dish was associated with Kentucky during the 1800s at the horse races. Burgoo was a way to gather people to come to the races. A side note: a racehorse named Burgoo King won the Kentucky Derby in 1932. Tonight, enjoy Burgoo served with a side of cornbread!
