The Kentucky Derby is the most famous horse race in the world.  It brings some amazing horses to Churchill Downs; it also features incredible hats and fashion for the ladies and some wonderful Kentucky cuisine. Attend any Derby party, and you are bound to be served some good ole Kentucky recipes. After all, it’s tradition!
