Kentucky Derby Meets Earth Day With Chef Ouita Michel

Chef Ouita has a great Kentucky Derby inspired recipe in her book‘ Just a Few Miles South: Timeless Recipes From Our Favorite Places’ which includes over 150 recipes from our favorite restaurants. You can purchase her book on her website! Be sure to follow her on Instagram and Twitter.

Her book also includes Ale-8-One, an environmentally friendly Kentucky brand. We have CEO of Ale-8-One Fielding Rodgers on with Neil to tell us all about it. Ale-8-One is a ginger and citrus-flavored soft drink now sold in 42 states. The family-owned corporation began bottling in Winchester, KY in 1926 and has since then become iconic of the region. For the last 95 years, Ale-8-One’s focus has been maintaining the integrity of the environment. Ale-8-One’s signature green, biodegradable, glass bottle proves their determination to this cause and has remained unchanged since 1926. Customers may return their glass bottles to local manufactures for compensation and to reduce waste going back into the environment. Check out their website, Instagram, and Twitter.
