Majid’s hosting the ‘Bloodhorse’ Derby winner dinner April 25

Before anyone goes there, know that no horses were harmed in the creation of this menu.

Where do you think we are? Italy? Japan?

The Bloodhorse dinnner is a rather clever celebration of one of Kentucky’s greatest living assets — big, beautiful, lovely and badass thoroughbreds — to be held at Majid’s St. Matthews on April 25 at 7 p.m. Plus, if you’re not familiar with “Bloodhorse,” it’s a leading publication in the equine industry.

So with that out of the way, let’s see what Majid’s bar manager Stephen Dennison and chef Alicia Minteer have created in these horsey-themed courses:

  • Man O’ War: Duck ‘A’L Orange’ Crostini, Duck Confit, Coriander and Orange Wash and Cracklin’s paired with Old Weller Antique 107 Progressive Old Fashioned
  • Secretariat: Field Mushroom and Barley Soup paired with Old Charter, B & B, Tobacco Vapor and Brandied Cherries
  • Eight Belles: Ginger Ahi Tuna Poke and Watercress paired with Buffalo Trace, Domaine Canton, Ginger Ale and Lemon
  • Big Brown: Butternut Squash Gnocci, Brown Butter, Molasses Drizzle and Prime Rib Au Poivre paired with Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Sour, Dumante, Carbonated and Sumac Sugar Rim
  • Barbaro: Apricot Bomb and Five-Spice Crackle paired with Angel’s Envy Champagne Cocktail and Lemon Guest-Expression

Price for the meal is $75 plus tax and gratuity. To make a reservation, phone 502-618-2222
