(Before I get to the pies, I would like to explain a couple of interesting combinations I learned this weekend. In Portland, a friend of mine introduced me to a new late snack, onion rings dipped in milkshake. Sounds gross, but it is good. In Seattle, people eat their hot dogs with cream cheese. This actually is gross.)
Okay, so the Dap-Kings are in Vancouver today and a special treat awaits us at the Commodore theatre. The nice people at Tartine Bread and Pies (770 Beach ave) are fans so they gave us 8 pies — sour cherry, blueberry, chocolate pecan, sour cream raspberry, Dutch apple, double crust lemon, strawberry rhubarb and pumpkin pecan. This is my dream come true. I have been craving this quality of pie every since I saw the movie “Waitress”. Being the food critic that I am, I must have a piece of every one of these pies. Every pie is pretty much perfect. An interesting one is the chocolate pecan pie, which is a pecan pie and a chocolate brownie all mixed into one. I can’t pick a favorite because every time I eat a piece, it becomes my favorite.
