Map highlights 47 destinations
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 2, 2014) — Gov. Steve Beshear and the Kentucky Department of Travel and Tourism will host a celebratory luncheon on Wednesday to recognize 47 Eastern Kentucky food sites recently chosen for the Appalachian Regional Commission’s (ARC) “Bon Appétit Appalachia,” a national map-guide showcasing the region’s most distinctive food destinations.
The map-guide is part of an overall initiative to promote Appalachia’s local food economy as the region continues to grapple with declines in mining, forestry and other important industries.
The map-guide was featured in the summer 2014 issue of Food Traveler magazine, available on newsstands until Sept. 30.
