In his highly anticipated follow-up to the James Beard Award–winning Buttermilk Graffiti, Edward Lee examines his favorite libation—bourbon—with recipes, essays, history, profiles, distillery tours, and more.

Bourbon is more than just a drink. It’s a way of life in Kentucky, a culture all its own, and it’s globally more popular than ever. In this one-stop guide to all things bluegrass whiskey, Bourbon Land celebrates everything you want to know about the libation. In 50 entries, author and James Beard Award winner Edward Lee fills the book with personal reflections, profiles of bourbon’s historical figures and future leaders, process how-tos, histories, maps, distillery tours, and more. Lee also shares 50 recipes that take bourbon from the glass to the skillet with dishes like Mushroom Grilled Cheese with Bourbon Gravy, Roasted Fennel and Bourbon-Burnt Orange Salad, and Pork Meatballs in Bourbon Gochujang Coconut Broth. Readers will learn the ins and outs of the industry, from why corn is used in bourbon, how oak is turned into barrels, how the drink survived prohibition, and even which furry friends stand guard over the warehouses. Boasting colorful photos and illustrations, and easy-to-digest maps, Bourbon Land will make a bourbon connoisseur out of anyone.
