Introduction I worked for several years as a Lab Analyst at USEC,in Paducah, Kentucky. While on a business trip I saw and purchased a cookbook that consisted of recipes from celebrities, sports figures, restaurants, tourist attractions, etc. It was such a great idea that I thought why not create a similar cookbook for the state of Kentucky. The response has been GREAT so I am using this website to expand it hopefully to create cookbooks for other state. If you would like to use this cookbook as a fundraiser for your non-profit organization please contact me. ENJOY!!!
