Handcrafted for over 60 years, Kern’s Derby-Pie® chocolate nut pie is a true – and truly delicious – Kentucky tradition.
The Kentucky Derby happens every year and it’s more than just a horse race – it’s a reason for friends, family, and loved ones to get together. While the big event is coming up this Saturday, make sure you celebrate right with a Derby Pie!
Leaudra and Walter Kern, along with their son, George created the very first Derby-Pie® dessert in 1954 at the Melrose Inn in Prospect, Kentucky, and to this day Kern’s Kitchen crafts each pie, one at a time, according to that legendary secret recipe. Premium chocolate and choice walnuts are folded into a decadent filling, then baked in a delicate crust.
Many hours were spent trying to find the unique blend of flavors that make up this classic southern dessert. The result? Well, the proof is in the pie. Perfectly sweet, pleasingly rich, with a light yet sumptuous texture found only in the best of homemade pies. Once developed, a name had to be given. Because each family member had a favorite, the name “Derby Pie” was actually pulled from a hat. With a pie so unique, the name was registered with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office as well as the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Half a decade later, the family tradition lives on with the same delicious homemade pies baked with semi-sweet chocolate and California walnuts.
