Local woman launches Louisville Food Tours

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville's growing culinary scene is getting a lot of recognition. A local woman is taking advantage of it, giving you a chance to take a slice out of our city.

"Louisville gets written up as one of the top foodie destinations in the country all the time," said Kim Hales, founder of Louisville Food Tours.

Stand on any corner of East Market Street and you're surrounded by several great eats. With so many options, how do you decided where to dine?

"Every other city has one but we didn't and I thought what a great way to showcase what Louisville has to offer as far as the food scene goes," said Hales.

Kim Hales launched Louisville Food Tours, a chance to explore the up and coming culinary scene in our city. The walking tour visits six restaurants in the Nulu neighborhood.

Hales said, "You'll get to meet with the chef or the owner the manager, ask questions about their food their philosophy, hear what they have to say and move on to the next place."

But not before tasting a signature dish, or whatever tasty treat the chef wants to showcase.

"I like to give restaurants full creative control so I don't even know what they're going to serve until we walk in the door," said Hales.

"It lets me play a little bit because I can take something I only have a little bit of and I can do something new and different for them," said Richard Sible, executive chef at Garage Bar.

It gives people a taste of what our city has to offer.

"It's really helped our business but I also think it's really helped the culture and culinary scene in Louisville as people are branching out and exploring all these new options," said Thor Morgan, manage at RYE.

Louisville Food Tour runs every Saturday at 1:30. It costs $48 per person.
