Derby Day Snacks
The Kentucky Derby, the most exciting two minutes in sports, is back this year to its regularly scheduled first Saturday in May, and with that, so is snacking and sippin’ your way through the spring day. Jonathan Searle, executive chef of Proof on Main at 21c Museum Hotel Louisville in Kentucky, shared some of the tried-and-true recipes that have gotten him to the finish line on derby days in the Bluegrass State. “The Kentucky Derby is as much about sharing good food and drink with family and friends as it is about horse racing. These recipes are some of my favorite things to snack on with friends. They’re all easy to eat and serve. People can gather and tell stories as they smear large piles of pimento cheese onto saltine crackers. Munching between shared laughs around the table is what it’s all about,” says Searle.
