Whoah, it’s November already! How did that happen? And it is the weekend already, too! And Halloween is behind us 😦
That’s ok! This Saturday is the first of our weekly Holiday Pie Tasting series! That’s right, folks, this Saturday from 1-3 (or until we run out) we will be sampling our Brandy Mince Pie.
This is a mincemeat pie for people who don’t think they like mincemeat pie.
Mincemeat pie was traditionally a holiday pie made with actual meat, dried fruits and nuts. Today it is usually meat-free but is heavy and too sweet. Ours is vegetarian and made with a brighter assortment of ingredients than other mincemeat pies.
Featuring local organic apples from Marshall Ranch in Sebastopol, dried peaches, apricots, almonds and pears from Chris Gertz in Winters, organic raisins, organic brown sugar, house made organic candied orange peels and more, we prepare this filling weeks in advance so the flavors can mingle with cider and brandy, then bake it into a pie with our buttery, flaky crust.
Also, this Saturday,
The Keepers will be here to entertain you with their sweet sounds as you enjoy our sweet and savory pies from 1-4pm Saturday November 2nd.
The Keepers are dedicated to keeping the sounds of the Folk Revival alive in Sonoma County. The Keepers perform songs recorded by The Kingston Trio; Peter, Paul, and Mary; Simon and Garfunkle, The Everly Brothers, John Denver, Gordon Lightfoot, The Beach Boys, and many more.
Come on down and join the fun!
