It’s been awhile…

Hello dear pie fans!

I have been enjoying our interactions on facebook so much, I have somewhat neglected the blog. And, truthfully, I had to go back to a non-pie job and time is tight. But here are a few recent shots of Pie Club escapades!

My first attempt at a galette – honey and walnuts and pears, oh my!

The Pie Club goes international! Here’s my mom showing our website to fellow baker at Vancouver, BC based The Pie Shoppe. Thanks mom!

In other news, spring is here! Can. Not. Wait. for late-spring pies, can you?

Pie for Rosh Hashanah!

30 Aug

A few weeks ago on a trip to Sebastopol for gravenstein apples, my friend Moe and I stopped at Bee Kind – a small honey shop on Gravenstein Hwy that sells over 40 different kinds of local honey. You can check this place out¬†on the web¬†here, but I definitely recommend visiting in person because the shop offers taste tests for all of their honeys. My favorite was the pomegranate honey, but I only tasted 3 or 4 for fear that I’d ruin my appetite for a slice of gravenstein apple pie from¬†Mom’s Apple Pie, a large pie kitchen that’s¬†a little farther north¬†on Gravenstein Hwy.

But the honey inspired me to think BIG. On the Jewish New Year, many communities eat apples, round breads, and honey to celebrate the sweetness and cyclical nature of the new year…which, of course, led me to idea of a Rosh Hashanah pie!


This year, the Pie Club’s New Year pies are filled with organic heirloom apples rolled in organic honey made by Oakland bees!*
Place your order today through the Pie Club order form! The details are below:

$30 per 9″ pie (yields 8 slices)
All pies will be delivered on September 14th and 15th

*You are more than welcome to order this pie whether you celebrate Rosh Hashanah or not!
