Bluegrass and Backroads: Kern's Kitchen & Derby-Pie

Published Jun 15, 2017

Handcrafted for more than 60 years in Louisville, Kern’s Derby-Pie® chocolate nut pie is a true–and truly delicious–Kentucky tradition. Leaudra and Walter Kern, along with their son George, created the very first Derby-Pie® 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. The result? Well, the proof is in the pie. Perfectly sweet, pleasingly rich, with a light yet sumptuous texture found only in the finest of homemade pies. After all, Kern’s Derby-Pie® has been a local, artisanal product since that very first pie came out of our oven—and we’ll stay that way, one pie at a time.
