Albert W. A. Schmid

Author, Chef, Educator

Burgoo, Barbecue & Bourbon is the Kentucky Culinary Trinity! Each of these classic Bluegrass dishes compliments & completes the perfect meal regardless of the season. This new offering by Chef Albert Schmid is offered up in a complete meal format with chapters on Burgoo, Barbecue, Side Dishes, Bread, Bourbon and Desserts - every recipe you need for your very own Burgoo event!

A perfect gift for the professional chef and the backyard grill master alike. This book features over 120 recipes including 20 cocktails so that you can sip and savor classic bourbon tipples while preparing mouth watering dishes.  

A true labor of love, this book, was funded in part by a Sullivan University faculty research grant and involved a partnership with Western Kentucky University's Special Collection library.

"My favorite aspect of this book is the student, staff and faculty involvement that helped to produce Burgoo, Barbecue & Bourbon," said Schmid. "Students were involved in the photo-shoot cooking many of the dishes for the pictures, staff helped by lending family recipes and cookbooks, and the faculty helped with food styling and taste testing the recipes. To top that off, my former student, Loreal "the Butcher Babe" Gavin wrote the foreword!"
