Pie News: Bloomfield & 3ROC
Hello pie fans!
Bloomfield Market this Saturday
The Bloomfield Farmers' Market is this Saturday, February 18 from 11a-2p. The weather will be chilly but sunny -- ideal winter farmers' market conditions. Below are the flavors I'll have:
lamb & feta
mushroom, potato & leek
curried chickpea & butternut
jerk sweet potato black bean
chocolate peppermint cream
I'm still working on beef pho, the newest savory flavor: keep posted for that! I've been doing some experimenting...
Also, as always, if ever you would like a large (10") sweet pie, please let me know at least two days in advance of the market what you would like! You can call or text me at 412-206-5192 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This week's deadline is tomorrow, Thursday Feb 16 at noon.
Pies & Pints @ 3ROC
The first Pies & Pints at the 3 Rivers Outdoor Co. was a success! They were pouring beers (for a $5 donation that went to the Rachel Carson Trail Conservancy), the campfire was roaring out front, and hot savory pies were to be had.
It will become a monthly event, happening next month on March 10th from 5p-8p at the 3 Rivers Outdoor Co., 1130 Braddock Ave, Pittsburgh 15218 in Regent Square.
I'll also be there for a special Pi Day version of Pies & Pints on Tuesday, March 14th from 5p-8p. It coincides with their weekly run club that meets at 6p there for a trail run through Frick Park. You can lace up and join the run club and get some pies after, or just come for pies.
Good Taste Pittsburgh is putting on a baking show next month, and I've been invited to give a pie dough demonstration!
Bake It! is a new event that will include demos from other bakers; workshops; baking ingredients, accessories & equipment for sale; and baked goods for sale from bakers around town. A baking bonanza.
It's on Sunday, March 12th from 1:00 - 6:00p in the Sheraton at Station Square,
300 W Station Square Dr, Pittsburgh 15219. Tickets are $10-25 and can be purchased here.
That's all the news for now. See you at the Bloomfield market!
