The expression PIE EYED means “drunk” which I was, with pie. That’s how I felt this past July, when hundreds and hundreds of delicious pies were being made, photographed, written about and displayed on blogs, Twitter and FB and more. I didn’t get to taste one—not even the one I made.
On Saturday, October 15th, 2011 at Rodeo Bar, pie enthusiasts (who live or can get to New York City) and I will be able to get some pie in-mouth satisfaction.
Ken (@HungryRabbitnyc) and I are hosting Pie Party Potluck LIVE! (#PiePartyLive) in NYC. The concept is simply scrummy. Spend the afternoon meeting food bloggers, food writers, food entrepreneurs, chefs, bakers, restauranteurs and more pie lovers, eating each others savory and sweet pies.
We both participated in the virtual #PieParty, this past July, sparked by Justin, Shauna, Irvin, Garrett, , and Ashley, where over 1500 food bloggers and food lovers world-wide made and posted about their pies. It was an amazing community event and it made me very hungry.
Ken made a Mango Coconut Cream Pie inspired by a gift from visiting friends. I made Black Bottom Banana Cream Pie, the star of the dessert platter in my show The Fried Chicken Theory According to Jackie Gordon.
As I was salivating over the #PieParty photos and blog posts I was tempted to throw an impromptu party at my house for anyone who cared to share their pie. But I’d already scheduled a mystery road trip with my boyfriend, so I whipped up my pie, in the toaster oven—no A/C means no baking at my house in July—gave it to my mom to dole out and skipped town.
But the idea stuck. Ken and I filed it for fall as a nice follow up to our Chinese New Year Potluck feast.
