Classic Ky. Derby dessert has controversial name

ProChef SmartBrief | May 01, 2015

Plenty of eateries in Kentucky and beyond will bake up classic Kentucky bourbon pie this weekend in honor of the Kentucky Derby, but restaurants should be careful what they call the dessert. "Derby Pie" is a registered trademark of Kern's Kitchen in Louisville, and the restaurant has a history of bringing a lawsuit against other eateries that use the name to describe their pies.
