Anyone who’s enjoyed a meal at the Mayan Café knows it’s outstanding. But often what puts the “located in NuLu long before it was NuLu” restaurant in a league of its own is its vegetable dishes. Perhaps that’s a product of chef and co-owner Bruce Ucan’s upbringing in the Yucatan Peninsula, where edible fruits and vegetables grow year round in the tropical sun.
If you haven’t eaten there, then perhaps this upcoming meal at Foxhollow Farm (8905 Hwy 329, Crestwood, Ky.) will entice you to try his food.
The completely biodynamic farm (which is really closer to Prospect than Crestwood, so don’t take I-71 there) is hosting the first in its Wheelbarrow to Table Dinner Series at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 18. Ucan will be the featured chef and prepare a four-course dinner featuring the best of Foxhollow’s winter crop prepared with his unique Latin twists. Each course will be paired with all-organic and biodynamic wines to complete the experience.
