Miss C's Kitchen and Pantry
We are proud to be showcasing our first company profile of a Butchertown business. It was only right and fitting that our first selection was that of Miss C's Kitchen located at 1319 Story Ave. Charlotte and Chris have been Butchertown advocates and involved in the BNA since moving into their location two years ago. As their website proclaims the famous words of Kentucky environmental writer, Wendall Berry, "eating is an agricultural act," these ladies turn out some of the finest Kentucky Proud foods in the region.
They maintain three local gardens in town in which they use sustainable, pesticide free farming methods to produce some of the tastiest jams, jellys, and preserves I have ever had. Apparently the whole state agrees, and it is proven by their numerous State Fair Champion recipes. Miss C's is also the only Kentucky Farm Bureau Certified Roadside Farm Market in the city of Louisville which allows them to produce and sell products made from local farmers. This helps when the demand is too great on their gardens and they locally source fresh produce for some of their products.
They offer private chef services, catering for private parties, businesses, and events. In the summers you can find them at the St Mathew's Farmer's Market, and if you are gearing up for your Derby party, they only have a few openings left for that special day in May! Speaking of springtime, you must try their ice-cream and top it off with one of their amazing fruit preserves- a hit amongst any group. Also starting this spring, they will be serving breakfast on Saturday mornings at their Story Ave location, and all Butchertown residents will be receiving 10% off!!!!!
You may contact Charlotte and Chris at 795-1085, but even better yet, stop in and say hello while you enjoy this Butchertown treat!
