A Kentucky Derby Feast

The Kentucky Derby—a day for big quadrupeds, even bigger hats and massive cravings for all things Kentucky. Save yourself a trip to Churchill Downs and throw a Derby party featuring Kentucky’s best bites like the original Kentucky Derby Pie from Kern’s Kitchen in Louisville or Bauer’s Modjeskas—a caramel covered regional favorite.

And seeing as this is a Kentucky-themed gathering, you’ll most likely be downing some Bourbon, whether that’s straight up, on the rocks or soaked into cake. We’ve discovered the best Kentucky-baked and Bourbon-laced bites for your amazing race day soirée.
