LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Bourbon makes everything better for the Kentucky Derby. And a splash of Kentucky's favorite recipe can add a something special to entertaining.

Chef Anoosh Shariat is sharing a dish perfect for Derby parties and entertaining at home. He's making a mini lamb hop with mint and asparagus with bourbon pecan butter.  He says this is a dish that can impress your guests.

Shariat has been a chef in the Louisville food scene since the early 90s, and he is now chef/owner of two restaurants in town: Noosh Nosh and Anoosh Bistro, both located just off the Watterson on Brownsboro Rd.

The Derby is a very exciting (and busy) time for Louisville restaurants. Chef Anoosh is featuring Derby-inspired cuisine at both restaurants including a Hot Brown pizza at Noosh Nosh.
