Here Laurence Agnew, Joe Banet, Anthony Lamas, Edward Lee, Jeremy Johnson, Fernando Martinez and Mark Peters answer the question about what "Derby" food is their least favorite.

Q: What is your least favorite Derby food?

Laurence Agnew, Executive Chef at Crushed Ice Events: Mint juleps.

Joe Banet, Executive Chef at Rye: Hot Browns and mint juleps.

Jeremy Johnson, Meta: It used to be the Hot Brown...I never got it, until I had the right one, in fact, it was a hot brown casserole and it was amazing.

Anthony Lamas, Seviche: Derby Pie​. I'm not big on sweets and I just don't get it.

Edward Lee, 610 Magnolia/Milkwood: Mint julep. I guess it's not a food but it's the only thing about Derby I'm not crazy about.

Mark Peters, Coals Artisan Pizza: Not sure… Hot dogs?
