Found a really cool book

Welcome to the interactive Louisville Restaurants Forum, a civil place for the intelligent discussion of the local restaurant scene and just about any other topic related to food and drink in and around Louisville.

Found a really cool book

Postby Suzi Bernert » Tue Mar 05, 2013 5:26 pm

I found a book called "Louisville in Good Taste" by Lani Basber and Jeanne Jennings at a thrift shop today. It is dated 1989 and has menus and recipes from local restaurants. A lot of names that are gone and fondly remembered: Bauer's, Casa Grisanti, Hasenour's, Masterson's, are some of the names. I have just gotten through the first few and have a whole new group of recipes to try.

If you are looking for an old favorite, I will check in this for you. :D

I like finding things like that at thrift stores or antique places. What are some of the 1989 menu prices at - say Hasenours?

The funny thing is that I was the restaurant (and wine) guy at the CJ in 1989, along with being a reporter, and I don't remember a thing about that book. I was usually very conscious of anything that was done about local eats and eateries.

Funny, too, it doesn't seem that long ago. :oops:

It published by McClanahan Publishing House in Kuttawa, KY. It appears they mostly do Kentucky based books of history and cookbooks.

Prices for Hasenour's - only the Atrium menu is there. Prices are from $11.95 for Chicken Gazpacho saute chicken breast, deglazed with red wine and gazpacho, grilled zucchini gami) to $22.95 for Grilled Lobster Tails. Prices include Atrium salad and fresh baked bread. I will try to scan some pages and post them.

Me too! I have collected KY cookbooks for many years--had forgotten about this one! It is a fun read about places long gone and places we still enjoy!
