Kentucky Loves Ranch Dressing & Bobby Flay to Louisville – Weekly Miscellany

Kentucky Loves Ranch Dressing & Bobby Flay to Louisville – Weekly Miscellany

 

Do you love ranch dressing? If you’re in Kentucky odds are you do. My friend from college Lynette would always specify she wanted “French, with an ‘f'” to the waitress so she wouldn’t end up with ranch. Kentucky accents can be tricky.

A meta-analysis of state menus by Food Genius and Fast Company found the most distinctive foods and terms for each state. Kentucky joins Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, and others with “ranch dressing” as their most distinctive food choice. I’m not sure we Kentuckians can be too proud of that. What about something like “hot brown”? Kentucky’s top menu term (rather than food) was “perfect”, which does seem about right.

Hats off to Georgia for “grits” and Louisiana for “crawfish.” I’m sure it means nothing that Missouri has “dip”.
