Happy International Women’s Day everybody! And not only that, the whole month of March (in addition to being Pi Month) is Women’s History Month. So go to your local library or bookstore and grab some good books about historical women and read them with pie and coffee.
Hey Everybody! It is daylight saving time again. Don’t forget to set your clocks an hour ahead tonight. Yes you will lose one hour of sleep on Saturday night, but you can have pie one hour earlier on Sunday! And remember, it is always time for pie.
Did you know that the whole month of March this year is Pi Month? It is true! Since it is 2014, this third month makes it 3-14. Of course, every 14th day of March is Pi Day and this year, we are holding our Pi(e)Ku contest online. Write a haiku about pi or pie or both. You can submit your entry online or in our shop. All entries must be received by 3-14 1:59 pm. Winners will be announced at 3:14 pm. All prizes must be picked up in person by the end of the day 3-15 (the pies of March). Please see our contest page for details.
Junya Matsumura stopped by to check out Petaluma Pie Company. It turns out, Junya and his wife own a bagel shop called Tabi Bagel,
Tabi Bagel co-owner Junya Matsumura from Tokyo and Petaluma Pie Company co-owner Lina Hoshino
a tiny artisanal bakery with a big reputation. If you ever spent any time in Japan, you might have noticed that it is not easy to find bagels. (especially good bagels made with organic ingredients.) We don’t know when we’ll make it back to Tokyo but we are definitely putting Tabi Bagel’s treats on our list of things to eat in Tokyo.
It is another beautiful sunny day in Petaluma, but fortunately, rain is coming this week. Out in the pie garden there are signs of spring stirring. Asparagus is just poking it’s head out and rhubarb is waking up also. March is just around the corner, bringing with it the pies of March!
Today, of course, pie is what is for lunch, dinner afternoon snack or dessert.

It’s Presidents’ Day. We are open and we are trying our darndest to replenish our supplies after being slammed all weekend after that nice article came out. So if we don’t have everything you wanted, please be patient. Some of our savory pies literally take days to prepare. There is something called a George Washington Pie, but it is a cake. Abraham Lincoln was fond of Pecan and Lemon pies. We have those. And of course, Apple Pie is as American as you can get. Sorry, no cherry…
