Louisville, Kentucky

Louisville is known for baseball bats, beautiful magnolia trees, the Kentucky Derby, and for being the hometown of Muhammad Ali. Its name pays homage to French King Louis XVI, who assisted the colonists during the American Revolution. Louisville is also the birthplace of several original dishes. Henry Bain sauce, named after its inventor, the head waiter at Louisville's Pendennis Club, is a sweet, tangy, spicy concoction best served with wild game or beef tenderloin. The Hot Brown sandwich was created by the chef of Louisville’s Brown Hotel. It’s an open-faced sandwich topped with turkey, tomato, bacon, and cheese sauce, and then broiled until the cheese sauce turns golden brown. Besides fast horses, the Kentucky Derby is also renowned for popularizing the refreshing mint julep cocktail (made with Kentucky bourbon and fresh mint leaves).
