There is something magical about pie. Its uniting crust. Delicious innards and heart stopping fat content.
I think the magic also comes from making said pie with a nice person. Collecting the ingredients in a cross-town Sunday dash and putting them all together, to share with some wine and good friends.
Anita and Ben from Rancho Deluxe invited myself and the infamous Kris Wood around to the garage for a Sunday evening pie sharing session. We consulted “Stephanie”, the all encompassing cook book and set our minds on a good old fashioned chicken and leek, with stewed apple and custard for dessert. It was a little trial and error, but really, it all turned out pretty swell. I need to work on my lattice. Perhaps we shall just have to hold another pie night?
