"Food is Health" Cancer Preventative Foods

Education, Food/Tasting
Join our "Food is Health" series with Dr. Matt Dawson and Health Coach Pam Stein VanArsdall in the Grand Ballroom at The Kentucky Castle. This dinner and discussion will focus on Cancer Preventative foods. "Let food be thy medicine," said Hippocrates, the father of medicine. "After a decade of practicing medicine it becomes more and more clear to me how important this actually is. Every cell of your body is made up of exactly what you consume as food. You literally are what you eat. Your health is influenced by nothing as much as what you eat. Let us teach you how to eat deliciously in a way that improves health and wellness, not the opposite. It's not hard. It just requires some knowledge and simple solutions we can teach you." - Dr. Matt Dawson

Bourbon Sensory Analysis I: Introduction to Bourbon Sensory Analysis

Food/Tasting
A quality Bourbon can contain over 200 flavors divided into five primary categories: • Grains • Tree (wood and nut) • Sweet • Spice • Botanical (primarily fruit and floral) Like fine wine, it takes palate education and practice to learn to detect the subtle and nuanced aromas and flavors of a complex Bourbon. We’ll explore the basics of Bourbon sensory analysis by looking at the fundamentals of sensory analysis in general and the application of sensory analysis to Bourbon specifically. The Kentucky Castle's Bourbon-Steward-In-Residence (& Bourbon industry insider) Tim Knittel will guide you through: • The five types of flavor receptors: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and savory/umami • The myth of the ‘five regions’ of the tongue • Mouthfeel: astringency, hotness, coldness and fattiness • Aromatic “taste” and taste bud vs olfactory sensation • Resetting (baselining) sensory perception • Orthonasal vs retronasal breathing and the post-swallowing volatile congeners release • Finish/after-taste • Dilution and industry-standard A.B.V. evaluation levels • Use of aromatic and culinary aids in Bourbon flavor identification • Spirit “prototypes” and relative evaluation The bourbon pour list for this class is a secret! After training your palate, we’ll have a blind tasting! You'll try to determine grain bill, yeast strain type, maturation length and proof to determine category and match to prototype.
