Kenji's Pies in Jars
Kenji baked two different pies: Beef Pie with Double Smoked Bacon, Figs, and Prunes, as well as a veg option: Deeper 'n Ever Turnip 'n Tater 'n Beetroot Pie. On the side of those adorable jars, some crisp fennel salad.
Looking a bit creepy behind the pie table...
Two Little Red Hens
Ginger Plum Crumble. Delightfully tart, sweet, and crumbly.
Yura on Madison
"Bananayama" (banana and sweet potato) with whipped cream fluffs and a gorgeous Plum Almond Tart. Yura herself was there too!
First Prize Pies
Bourbon Ginger Pecan Pie
Four & Twenty Blackbirds
Black-Bottom Oatmeal Pie, a personal favorite of our managing editor Erin. It's almost like a gooey sweet pecan pie, minus the pecans, plus oats.
In case you needed a break from all the pies, there was a spread of cheeses, peppers, bread, olives, and cured meats.
Ad sales director Jen and her husband Matt, and managing editor Erin, check in people arriving at the event.
Each pie was paired with one of Brooklyn Winery's wines.

We may have eaten pie again for dinner that night and lunch the next day...
