Season 2, Episode 8 – “Louisville Kentucky”
Joel gallops into the Derby City–Louisville, Kentucky–and pairs up with three-time James Beard semi-finalist, Anthony Lamas, to create a menu with food usually tossed in the trash. Their search for scrappy ingredients takes them to a watermelon farm to learn the untold secrets of melon harvesting, and behind the counter in a classic ice cream scoop shop. With rinds and peels in hand, Joel and Anthony create a new version of southern BBQ. But can they convince the most sophisticated and discriminating taste buds in the Bluegrass State–local bourbon experts and sommeliers–that their scrappy dinner is the winning bet?
