Pie Game

Pie specials for the restaurants

A reconstructed plated pie dessert, using typical flavors but served in  atypical and whimsical way.  To make it memorable, curious, and beyond delicious.  The goal is to make the pie as delicious as extravagant, to move beyond the convenience of a simple slice of pie and the simplicity of a one dish dessert.

Going to shift outside of the latin influence for this one, because of where we physically are, because its a holiday, because of global influence.  Pie is one of America’s best desserts, so let’s spread the word.
