Hey, there!


Welcome to Kentucky Taste Buds, a collaborative effort between two best "buds” who are committed to “tasting” all that the beautiful Bluegrass State has to offer from its delectable food, Southern-inspired fashion, craft brews and world-class bourbon, and the many events offered year-round.

Leigh and I met back in middle school here in Lexington. As it's extremely bad manners to discuss age, we won't tell you how long ago that was. With the exception of a 10-year period where we fell out of touch, we have been best buds.
