This Saturday will be the 1st of May- which, for Kentuckians signifies the 136th running of the Kentucky Derby! The Derby is a 1 1/4 mile race where the best 3-year-olds in horse racing compete for the prestigious honor of wearing the blanket of roses. The Louisville Courier-Journal hosts a great page on its website to document all the Derby Fun, including featuring UPK author Albert Schmid and The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook. Chef Schmid will guide you through all the recipes to make your derby party truly authentic and yummy… but you’re on your own choosing a hat!
