On the Top Chef episode “Carne!”, Hollywood screenwriter and actress Lena Waithe (Master of None) surprises the chefs. She informs them of their next challenge: to make the trademark Kentucky dish, the Hot Brown. The famous Louisville dish is an open-faced sandwich consisting of turkey and bacon and Mornay sauce. It can be baked or broiled. It’s called the Hot Brown because it was created in the 1920s by Chef Fred Schmidt at The Brown Hotel.
