This summer, Bravo filmed its 19th season of “Top Chef” in Kentucky, highlighting all that the Bluegrass State has to offer, and in tonight’s episode airing at 9/8c, the cast visit our very own Maker’s Mark Distillery!  While the episode will only last sixty minutes, the collaboration between Bravo’s “Top Chef” and Maker’s Mark will extend much longer in the form of…

A limited edition bottle of Maker’s Mark Private Select, created in partnership with the cast and launching on December 14th at the distillery and select Kentucky retailers for $79.99.

These full recipes and images featured on the episode that have since been integrated into the menu at their on-campus restaurant, Star Hill Provisions. Below is the winning recipe.

Spoon Bread With Étouffée Sauce

YIELD: 4 PORTIONS

This recipe dazzled the judges on Bravo’s Top Chef. The same thing happened at Maker’s Mark when we prepared it ourselves. You can see our effort pictured here. The recipe is the creation of Nini Nguyen, who was raised in New Orleans and is the daughter of Vietnamese immigrants. This is apparent in her cooking, which embraces the rich culinary cultures of both Vietnam and Louisiana. You can enjoy the New Orleans part of this equation at home by trying your hand at this episode-winning recipe. Loretto, Ky., makes a showing here too with a Maker’s Mark deglaze.
