~::~ A Little History ~::~
Sissy Nash and her daughter-chef (Kathy Nash), provided this family recipe to Southern Living in December 1996. Kentucky corn pudding is a traditional dish served at Derby parties and special occasions in Louisville. This is one of the best Kentucky corn pudding recipes and has been a favorite of our family and friends for years. With a rich, souffle-like texture, if you follow this recipe (to the TEE) the result is perfection!
