For Chefs/Restauranteurs

Derby-Pie® chocolate nut pie is a treasured  tradition for many families. By offering it, your restaurant becomes part of that heritage. While the recipe is ours alone, many chefs have their own serving techniques that allow them to put their own special touches on the presentation and complement the flavors in a way that expresses their unique style and brand.
