Chef Ouita Michel in a 2000 Ace coverstory

In a June 2000 “Fridges of Fayette County” interview with Ace, Chef Ouita Michel told Ace staffer Rob Bricken, “My food philosophy is…well, I went into the food industry because I think it engages every aspect of the human experience. Art, politics, famine, war, pestilence, everything that we go through as a society globally, locally, agriculture-it’s all related to the sustenance, the maintenance, the preparation and handling of our food supply.”
“One thing I constantly try to do is to cook with a historical perspective. I don’t think there’s anything new you can do with food, and I’m not looking for it. I can’t stand bullshit restaurant food. It’s all supposed to sound quirky and fun, but it’s not based in anything. I once had a Cornish game hen, where the chef had put it upside down into a pile of mashed potatoes with a sprig of Rosemary sticking out of its butt. That doesn’t make any sense!” (Ace Weekly, June 2000 interview)

Ouita Michel was a runner up in the Best Local Chef category in the Ace Best of Lexington Readers Poll. Her restaurant, Holly Hill Inn, was voted Best Restaurant for eating locally. 

And on October 10

  Edward Lee of Louisville’s 610 Magnolia will conclude the series when he teams with Oxford Mississippi’s John Currence and Charleston’s Mike Lata .
