If you’re attending the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky, you’ll be walking a lot. Be glad. Because Kentucky delicacies tend to be heavy.

But if the fried ones are done right, they won’t be greasy. They’ll be crisp and taste lighter than they are. As with many areas where southern cooking reigns supreme, fried food in Kentucky has been raised to an art form.

The thing is, few of these foods are Kentucky-only. A lot of these are basic southern-cooking specialties.

I’ve also included some restaurants I can recommend, especially on the outskirts of Lexington, like Harrodsburg or one of the old roads to Richmond.

Also, this is not meant to be an exhaustive list. I’ll certainly leave out your favorite Kentucky treat, let alone your favorite Kentucky restaurant, so feel free to add your favorites to the comments section below.
