The first weekend of May is for the running of the roses at Churchill Downs... and we've taken to celebrating at home, eating and drinking our favorite bourbon-infused dishes.
The Kentucky Derby is a cultural event. It's not just about the horses, but about the hats, the prestige, the experience... and I'm here to tell you that you can do it all at home.
Gather some friends together for the event, which happens once a year. Choose your horse. Wear an ostentatious hat. Drink a julep. Snack on a bourbon-chocolate-pecan pie.
You get the idea.
To ease your Derby party worries, I've put together a solid list Kentucky Derby recipes that you and yours can enjoy!
