The Kentucky Derby is not only the most exciting two minutes in sports, it’s also a great occasion to throw a party catered with things like cheesy, messy Kentucky hot browns and many, many mint juleps. For an added on-theme flourish, serve a few rose-infused foods in honor of the race’s nickname, The Run for the Roses. Here, some great ideas:
Candied Rose Petals
These beautiful, sugary petals make for an impressive garnish, but they’re super-easy to make.
Chilled Persian Yogurt Soup
Creamy Rose Panna Cotta
The key ingredient to this creamy dessert is Italian rose syrup, which provides a lovely, delicate floral flavor.
