Big Southern Flavor, Small Town Charm

Hey, y’all! The Commonwealth of Kentucky is chock-full of delicious restaurants – and I’m on a mission to try them all. I recently tried Marcella’s Farm to Fork, which is located in Mt. Vernon. The food was incredible + I am excited to tell y’all more about my experience today!

Marcella’s Farm to Fork

The food at Marcella’s can best be described as down-home southern cookin’. On their website, the owner claims to cook food “just like mom” – and I completely agree with that sentiment. Each bite, though I was at a new-to-me restaurant, was familiar; nostalgic; and, above all else, absolutely delicious.

Marcella’s name is also important to note: Farm to Fork. This indicates their promise to source the highest quality ingredients for their dishes + local when available. You can taste the difference.

What I Ordered: Marcella’s Farm to Fork

My main course at Marcella’s was the meatloaf. It was praised prior to my arrival and I knew that I had to order it. Though the accolades expressed were high, I must agree: it’s the best meatloaf that I have ever put in my mouth.

Along with the meatloaf, I ordered three of my favorite southern foods: collard greens, soup (pinto) beans, and cornbread. That’s a holy trifecta as far as I am concerned.

While I was too full for dessert, someone ordered the chocolate pie and I was automatically enamored by the mile-high meringue. I am definitely saving room for dessert when I visit next.
