Kentucky Proud Farm Fresh Recipes

This summer, Kentucky Living joined with Kentucky Proud to collect your best recipes for the Farm Fresh Recipe Contest. Readers from across the state entered their recipes in three categories—
appetizers, sides and desserts.

Next, submissions were graded by Kentucky Proud members Hubert and Katy Groves-Mussat of Farmer & Frenchman Winery and Cafe in Robards and Brie Golliher of Boyce General Store in Alvaton. Extra points were awarded to recipes that used multiple Kentucky Proud products.

Our staff made the winning recipes and honorable mentions, and we can tell you, they’re taste-tested, Kentucky Living approved! Winners will receive a Kentucky Proud gift basket, valued at approximately $150. Here, we present to you the top recipes in each category:
