While Steve’s eating and drinking on a beach somewhere, Chef Dean Corbett steps in to his chair as this week’s guest co-host. Of course, Corbett has the experience — he hosted more than 50 radio shows with Steve in an earlier venture dubbed the ChefBoyarDean Show. Listen in as Dean fills us in on his view on recent restaurant news, including Dallas McGarity’s move to The Fat Lamb and the controversy over a review of Joella’s.

Rick’s guest is Steve Nally, master distiller at the sparkling new Bardstown Bourbon Co., which began producing bourbon just last week. A veteran of 40 years in distilling, the bulk of which was at Maker’s Mark, where he retired as master distiller nearly a decade ago, Nally talks about the ground-breaking new facility and the mark it plans to make on the industry.Before he left, Steve sat down with the amazing bartender Joy Perrine, the first woman inducted into the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame.

Corbett adds some interesting stories about Perrine, who’s been a staple at Equus and Jack’s Lounge for three decades.

As always, there’s more great drinking and dining news at EatDrinkTalk.net.
