Cooking with Tim Farmer to shoot at Radcliff | Local News
Fans of Tim Farmer’s Country Kitchen on Kentucky Educational Television may soon see a familiar setting in one of his shows.
The cooking show and its hosts, Tim and Nicki Farmer, will light the fires on Saturday for a live recording at the Boundary Oak Distillery in Radcliff.
“We love to travel,” Tim said of filming the show at Radcliff, adding that he had shot several shows on location in Lexington, Frankfort and Versailles. “And people were like on our Facebook page, ‘Can you move?’ “
When Tim was in the area for the Vine Grove Bluegrass Music Festival, he was introduced to Jason Basham, co-owner of Red Hill Cutlery, by a mutual friend.
“(Tim) mentioned at lunch that he did a bunch of his shows (on location),” Basham said. “It was one of those fluent conversations where I said, ‘Hey, you know, we have a distillery. We have a scene. “
Tim, an outdoor enthusiast who is also known for his 20s on Kentucky Afield on KET, visited the Radcliff Knife Store and the Pocketknife Museum, which is adjacent to Boundary Oak.
While there, they stopped by to speak with Brent Goodin, owner of Boundary Oak, to set up an appointment.
“It’s not something that we hope to benefit from,” Goodin said. “We just want to give people an event that they can enjoy. “
While events like this and the 9/11 concert may disrupt the normal flow of tourist traffic for the distillery, Goodin said it was important for businesses to provide something for residents to do.
“A lot of events that we organize, we organize them only for the community. We just want to have quality of life events for Radcliff and Hardin County. We want people to come and have a good time.
The show has been sold out for weeks, but fans will have the chance to see segments aired in future episodes as part of the popular KET program, Tim said.
“They can expect us to do the exact same thing as us,” he said. “We are no different in person than we are on television. What we’re doing is natural, it’s not scripted. If you watch our show, you basically watch us cook dinner. “
Tim and Nicki will be cooking over an open flame, outside the tourist destination of Radcliff, Tim said.
“We will talk about the history of what we cook,” he said. “I’m fascinated by the history of food and where the recipes come from, so there will be a lot of things like that at play.”
Tim said he would take the opportunity to speak to the audience on the show and allow them to ask questions, which he expects as it is a different dining experience.
“It’s mostly to have fun with the audience,” he says. “It’s informative, it’s fun, it’s cowardly, it’s easy. It’s so much fun doing something live.
While KET has policies against promoting locations and products, Basham said having Tim and the show’s audience on-site would help promote northern Hardin County.
“This is another example of Boundary Oak and Red Hill Cutlery being a team and trying to promote tourism in Radcliff,” he said.
