A popular local chef is swapping kitchens and hopping continents. Andrew Welenken, former chef de cuisine at the vaunted English Grille at the Brown Hotel has been named Executive Chef at the French Bardstown Road hot spot La Chasse. “I couldn’t pass on this opportunity to really express myself through food in ways I have never done before,” says Welenken. “I’m looking forward to cooking outside boundaries and to bringing adventurous dishes to the menu.” A recent visit to the cozy candlelit restaurant included a heavenly lobster crab cake and melt-in-your-mouth brandy orange soufflé and suggested wonderful culinary adventures ahead.
La Chasse is located at 1359 Bardstown Road, 502-822-3963.
