The Kentucky Bourbon Festival is underway in Bardstown this week, but you don't need to head out of town to get a the good stuff. With bourbon in the barbecue sauce, bourbon on the pork chops and bourbon smoked tomatoes on the menu at Bourbon Raw at Fourth Street Live, you can get your fix a little closer to home. The bourbon-smoked tomatoes are part of the warm goat cheese skillet appetizer and you can try it as part of The First Bite, if you purchase the appetizer. Tabitha Lauzon from Bourbon Raw, one of twenty restaurants you can try with the appetizer card, stopped by the GDL kitchen to talk more about their menu. Bourbon Raw is located at 446 South Fourth Street, in Fourth Street Live. Their phone number is 502-568-9009. You can see the full menu online at and get the appetizer card at
