Tangerine Dream Supreme

Creamy Tangerine Dream Supreme at Petaluma Pie CompanyHey Everybody! It’s Saturday and the year is new! In China and Japan, it is considered to be good luck to eat tangerines, mandarins and other citrus during the new year. We have a creamy Tangerine Dream Supreme pie we’d like to share with you. It is actually made from Mandarins (grown here in Petaluma by us) but Mandarins are closely related to Tangerines and are often sold as Tangerines and are quite delicious. This Saturday from noon to 3 (or until we run out) we will be sampling our Tangerine Dream Supreme pie which tastes like a Creamsicle, only real and in a pie.

Also, it looks like another clear and cold (for Petaluma) day. Just a friendly reminder that we have hot savory pies, soup, hot chocolate, hot cider, hot tea and more for you! We will be open until 9 on Saturday!

It’s Almost New Year’s Eve!

New Year Resolution Eat More PieHey Everybody, we hope you had a great holiday season. We’ve got just one more big holiday to go, New Year’s Eve! It looks like we have a little break from the rainy weather and it is clear and cold(ish). We are open every day this week with hot food and beverages for you and festive sweet pies. New Year’s Eve we will close early at 5 so our staff can go home, wash off the flour  and get ready to party. On January 1st, those of us who are too boring to party will be here for you with fresh pie when you eventually wake up. We will be open from 11-5 on New Year’s Day. Not only that, we will have red bean and mochi pie for you! As usual, you can order your New Year’s Eve pies online, in the shop or on the phone at 707-766-6743 (7mm-PIE)

Barley in the news!

mushroom barley soup at Petaluma Pie CompanyThat’s right, everybody, a new report says that barley was important in enabling people to settle on the inhospitable Tibetan Plateau. Prior to the introduction of barley from west of Tibet, most people relied on millet, which could not survive the higher elevations, but the introduction of cold hardy crops like barley allowed people to move from 5,600 feet to 11,000 feet above sea level about 5200 years ago.

Well, it is certainly not as cold as the Tibetan Plateau here in Petaluma at a mere 30 feet above sea level, but we have mushroom barley soup to warm you up this weekend.

And speaking of barley, there’s barely any time left to place your order for Thanksgiving pies! That’s right, folks, we are not taking any more orders after 7pm Sunday November 23. You can order your pies securely and easily online and schedule a time to pick it up the day before Thanksgiving.

We are open the day before Thanksgiving, Wednesday November 26 until 5pm. We will be closed on Thanksgiving and will open again on Friday for our regular hours.

‘Tis The Season

Hey Everybody! Less than a week left to place your orders for pies to pick up on Christmas Eve.

mmm…minestrone soup! at petaluma pie!‘Tis also the season for soup! Today, Monday, we have Minestrone Soup (vegetarian) for you! Come on down and enjoy some hot pie, hot soup and hot cider!

Soup’s On!

Heirloom Squash Soup at Petaluma Pie


It’s time for soup and we are making soup for you! Today’s soup is an Heirloom Winter Squash Soup featuring Shishigatani Kabocha, which originates in Kyoto, Japan (but was grown in Petaluma) and Musquee De Provence pumpkin. So come on in and take the chill off with soup and pie!

It is also just one week from the deadline to order pies to pick up on Christmas Eve. That’s right, the deadline is Sunday December 22nd! And then it will be luck of the draw (we will make some extra pies, but you won’t be able to guarantee your flavor if you don’t pre-order). We will close at 5pm on Christmas Eve, December 24th and we will be closed on the 25th.

Musquee De Provence

First off, it is so cold, but it is bright and sunny out and we have hot apple cider, hot chocolate, hot coffee and hot tea, as well as plenty of hot savory pies for you including Collard Greens with Bacon and Black Eyed Peas. So get out of the house, you’ll feel better (especially once you’ve had pie)!

This year we grew a new pumpkin (actually, an old pumpkin, Musquee De Provence), from seeds we picked up at the seed bank on the corner, Baker Creek Seed Company. We only got a few of them and the biggest, heaviest one grew right into the wire fence we used to support it. So when it came time to harvest it, we had to use it right away.

This is one huge and heavy pumpkin (we forgot to weigh it, but it was heavy). We cut it into chunks and roasted it 2 ways, sweet and savory.

Today, we have the sweet. Chunks of Musquee De Provence pumpkin roasted with brown sugar cinammon and butter mixed with cranberries and topped with a pecan crumble! This is a limited edition pie and it is very delicious. Get it while you can!

After a nice few weeks of mild temperatures, it is hot again. But don’t let the heat scare you away from pie. We have cold drinks and ice cream and cool refreshing cream pies! And you can enjoy all this while enjoying the sounds of Amaya from noon to four on Saturday outside in Helen Putnam Plaza in the shade. If you prefer to wait for pie until it cools off, we are open until 9pm on Saturday (Sunday, we close at 6). If you prefer to eat pie inside of your air conditioned home or office, you can have it delivered by Petaluma Food Taxi. And of course, all pie is portable. You can grab something to go to the beach, river, bar-b-que or wherever you are off to today.

We still have Gravenstein apple pie, but not for much longer, maybe only another week or two and then on to the next apple.
