I have so much to tell you today, I don’t even know where to begin.
Oh right, I do know where to start. Pie. So.much.pie.
Savory pie. Sweet pie. Whoopie pie. Hand pie. Dub Pie. Chocolate Peanut Pie. It’s a parade of pies that was consumed Thursday evening at the second annual Pie Party Potluck Live hosted by Jackie of The Diva That Ate New York and Ken of Hungry Rabbit and held at the beautiful GE Monogram Design Center.
A room full of food bloggers is a fun night to have and there were many amazing pies baked up. So many in fact that I needed to box up some to be sure I could sample them all!
Chef Tagere – GE’s in house chef was kind enough to give us a pie crust making demo. A must for any pie party. I have to say, I am in awe of her pie crust making abilities – perhaps if I started making as many pies as she does I’ll be as good as her. I have to say though, part of her demo included using sponsor Kerrygold butter, she even said herself – this butter is good. We each got some to take home and I can’t wait to try it out.
Speaking of sponsors, Dub Pies was at the party serving up their awesome Australian/New Zealand meat pies. I love Dub Pies, my husband is a regular at their Windsor Terrace shop. Who can resist meaty, cheesy pies in buttery pastry? I know I can’t. Jealous because you can only get them in Brooklyn? Well guess what? Gareth from Dub Pies is kind enough to send some pies to one lucky person! You’ll need to keep on reading to find out all the details.
Oh yeah, about my pie. Are you wondering why this is chocolate peanut butter pie redux? Around this time last year I posted Bubby’s chocolate peanut butter pie recipe. I love Bubby’s pie, but I wanted to bring my own recipe to the party. In all honesty, I just wanted to create a giant Reese’s peanut butter cup.
Now about that giveaway I talked about, as I mentioned Dub Pies (Down Under Bakery), one of the Pie Party sponsors is giving away a whole bunch of their pies to one of my lucky readers! The pies will be shipped frozen to you, so you’ll be able to enjoy a hot one at home.
