At least four local restaurants keep mutton on their menus, and frequent church dinners and fundraising events feature this regional specialty of western Kentucky. The Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn in Owensboro serves a legendary daily buffet showcasing mutton, along with other meats and traditional side dishes like country green beans and broccoli casserole. One distinctive buffet item, banana salad, features sliced bananas rolled in a cooked sweet-tart creamy dressing and topped with crushed peanuts. Bananas have a Kentucky tie because early refrigerated railcars bringing the tropical fruits north from New Orleans to Chicago for national distribution had to stop in Fulton, Kentucky, to replenish their ice supply.
The City Pool Hall in Monticello serves up another kind of burger, also a favorite for more than 50 years: In the late s Anton Busath, a French confectioner living in Louisville, worked for years to perfect a candy he named for a beautiful, dramatic Polish actress, Helena Modjeska.

Descendants of founder Rudy Muth continue to make and wrap Modjeskas by hand today, coating some with milk or dark chocolate.

For many Kentuckians, cooking sorghum is a fun activity done communally with family and friends.

Folklorist and oral historian William Lynwood Montell explores the business of death in his latest work, Tales from Kentucky Funeral Homes , offering readers entertaining, often hilarious, and occasionally poignant accounts that provide unique glimpses into an often overlooked but vital profession. Through its use of personal accounts and descriptions, the book reveals an insider's perspective of the funeral business, compiling anecdotes and recollections from funeral home directors and embalmers with lifetimes of experience serving families throughout the Commonwealth.
While many people are unfamiliar with the funeral home business, almost everyone has come in contact with ghost stories. McCormick and Wyatt taught a course together at Georgetown College on interviewing techniques, and decided to use ghost and death lore as the vehicle for teaching these skills. The book is a compilation of stories collected by twenty-three students that not only present inexplicable ghost stories but also relate the history of a region and the colorful people who call Kentucky home.
