By The Associated Press
FRANKFORT, KY - Is food better in the Bluegrass state? Kentucky tourism officials are inviting visitors to decide for themselves.

The Kentucky Tourism Cabinet says in a statement that it has launched the Kentucky State Parks Culinary Trail, which features nine parks offering different signature meals that represent their region.

Closest to home, Kentucky Dam Village is featuring local surf and turf, white beans with ham hock, Silver Queen sweet corn and Kentucky Wonder green beans, with banana pudding for dessert. Pennyrile Forest Resort State Park is preparing barbecue mutton and burgoo, baked beans, slaw, potato salad and peach cobbler.

Some of the other offerings include the hot brown, soup beans, fried potatoes, collard greens, beer cheese, spoonbread and bourbon cake. Beverages also feature Kentucky fare including Ale-8-One and bourbon. One park offers a choice of milk or moonshine.

Kentucky Tourism Commissioner Kristen Branscum says the initiative "is a fun and interactive way to highlight the state's signature dishes and encourage locals and visitors alike to explore every corner of our great state."

Participating parks will serve the meals now through Oct. 3.
