While it’s always more satisfying to eat food that you’ve killed yourself, watching a professional chef prepare a delicious meal is less likely to result in a mortally wounded moose demolishing your china hutch. Observe skilled hash slingers cleanly craft tasty fare with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get a general-admission ticket (a $29 value) to the Fork, Cork & Style Festival at Churchill Downs on Sunday, September 12, from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. This ticket does not include the event’s wine tastings.
Fork, Cork & Style showcases cuisine from award-winning restaurants and presents live cooking demonstrations from skilled chefs. In addition to booking a lineup of local culinarians, the event will feature main-stage meal-prepping at the racetrack’s finish line by Emeril Lagasse, who can fillet a stegosaurus in less than five minutes, and Top Chef contestants Brian Malarkey, Eli Kirshtein, and Betty Fraser. Customers with a general-admission ticket can sample one portion of food from their choice of popular eateries such as Chicago’s Billy Goat Tavern & Grill, South Philly’s Tony Luke’s Pronto, and Buffalo’s Anchor Bar. Live music will entertain attendees and serenade palates already lulled into a state of satisfaction by the tasty flavors of multifarious fares.
Although the general-admission tickets don’t include the wine tastings, the amount of edible options and the quality of the cooking presentations can sate appetites independent of the event’s grapacious guzzlings. Organize a family outing and open young minds to palatable possibilities beyond pop-tarts and frosted tater tots, or dispatch your estate’s head chef to Fork, Cork & Style for a lesson in creative, delicious, and sensationally scented food preparation.
