What You Missed at Kingfield Cafe's Pie Party

Three words: delicious pie "flights."

The Grand Cafe, long a neighborhood fixture in Kingfield, recently celebrated National Pie Day with a delicious-sounding mix of pie tasting "flights" and a prix fixe meal.

The $25 per person dinner featured seared pork tenderloin and braised pork belly served with escarole sautéed with garlic and guanciale, roasted squash puree and kumquat marmalade, and a salad. The pie flights featured Chocolate Chess, Honey Bourbon Apple w/ Rosemary Whip, Salty Honey.

Local food journalists from The Heavy Table were there. While some parts of the main course got mixed reviews, they were bowled over by the pies:

We quickly forgot about the pale pork when the servers brought out the pie flights. The wait was over, and it was well worth it. All six creations, served in sets of three, were stunningly beautiful. After a couple bites, it was clear that Christine Hoffman is a master of the pie crust. Expertly cooked until golden brown, her shells were savory, flaky, and plain ol’ delicious.
