Join us for a dual-format WBG Annual Meeting in 2020, choosing from either the in-person meal or virtual watch-from-home option.

This year’s topic is: Reinventing Kentucky’s Classics: How to Create Some of Kentucky’s Classic Smoked Dishes Without the Smoker

Chef Sara Bradley is a native Kentuckian who is a gardener, chef/proprietor of freight house and runner-up contestant of Top Chef: Kentucky (Season 16), which was filmed locally at The Avish.

Joining us remotely from her kitchen in Paducah, chef Sara Bradley reimagines some of Kentucky’s most famous dishes. Farm to Fork Catering will be creating the recipes for our in-person dinner guests.

Chef Bradley infuses flavors of pit style bbq, as well as world-famous country ham, bourbon, and century-old recipes into seasonal local-source dishes. Sara discusses the history of preserving fruits and vegetables from the garden and focuses on the importance of communal cooking and how it has been affected during the wildness of 2020.

Chef Bradley will share her recipes of the food dishes served at the Graeser Family Education Center with both in-person and virtual attendees. Plus, she’ll add one cocktail recipe.

chef sara bradley was born and raised in western kentucky. she grew up loving all the delicacies our 
region has to offer. from the smooth apple butter her grandmother prepared every fall after the apples were 
plucked, to the sweet strawberry pie her mother would make from scratch every spring. she learned early on 
the flavor difference in fresh over frozen and the importance of cooking with the seasons.

she developed her skillset under the tutelage of michelin star chefs john fraser (dovetail, new york), david 
posey and paul kahan (blackbird, chicago). after careful consideration, chef sara opted to open freight house 
to focus on and encourage agricultural sustainability here in her home town of paducah.

chef sara is also involved in many charitable and philanthropic endeavors within the community, including 
being a founding member of cartel, a western kentucky style pit bbq team that raises capital funds for the 
restoration of historic buildings and numerous other nonprofits throughout the region.

chef sara was invited to compete on season 16 of the hit tv series top chef, and took 2nd place after 
battling it out with other talented chefs from across the country.
