Pi(e) Day 2019

TorontoJo | Mar 11, 201902:37 PM     55

Yesterday was my friends' annual celebration of the magical number Pi. This year was a little crazy with the sheer numbers of people and pies (16 people, 24 pies). Everyone brought their A game and the pies were delicious. I'll post the individual pies in the replies below, but here's the full list of pies:

- Galette with caramelized onions, swiss chard, smoked sausage
- Salted caramel and chocolate tart with almonds
- Maple hazelnut pie
- Malaysian chicken curry pie
- Coconut and pandan custard pie
- Apple pie
- Mac and cheese and hot dog pie
- Brown butter and vanilla creme brûlée tart
- Lemon tart
- Pork and mushroom pie
- Peanut butter and chocolate pie
- Miso chicken and mushroom pie with black sesame crust
- Honey miso walnut pie
- Salted honey pie
- Pear pie
- Shrimp pot pie hand pies
- Passionfruit orange blosson meringue tart
- Chocolate hazelnut tart with chocolate financier and chocolate feuillitine
- Matcha, yuzu, cherry blossom tart
- Tarte tatin
- Picadillo pie with cornbread crust
- Shoo fly pie
- Engadiner nusstorte (Swiss walnut tart)
- Caramel frangipane tart with poached oranges

We had several professional pastry chefs in the group. It's mostly pretty obvious who they are. :o)
