Expert Tips

  • Bourbon is a predominantly corn-based whiskey prized for its distinctive flavor. Most bourbon is produced in the state of Kentucky.
  • Don’t use your pastry brush for brushing on sauces since savory flavors can linger on the brush even after cleaning. Opt for a heat-safe silicone basting brush.
