Happy New Year!

That’s right, it’s the Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year since there are other countries and cultures that celebrate it. This year is the year of the Sheep or the Goat or a number of other grazing animals. We are going with Sheep, more specifically a Ram for now. Ewe will have to decide for yourself which is correct.

While our pie of the day is Coppa Mista (chocolate, pistachio, vanilla and almond) as we continue our celebration of National Pie Month, you can enjoy it while admiring our ram made out of pie tins by one of our resident artist’s Shana Leibowitz. Shana also made a chocolate cream pie with a sheep on it (check our instagram feed for that).

Friday is Pie Day February 6th

French Chocolate Silk Pie at Petaluma Pie CompanyHey Everybody, it’s Friday again and today is the birthday of Ronald Reagan, Bob Marley, Zsa Zsa Gabor and Rip Torn. It is also still February, which is still National Pie Month, which means we are rolling out a special NEW PIE EVERY DAY OF THE MONTH.
Even though it is may be rainy and windy, you will still want to come down and get some hot pie and hot chocolate or hot tea or hot coffee… and try one of our fancy new pies. Just be safe out there!

Friday: French Chocolate Silk
Saturday: Black Forest
Sunday: Piña Colada
Monday: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
and so on…

King for a day!

February 2nd is the Catholic holiday of Candlemas. In France, they make Galette Des Rois, which is kind of like a King Cake, only more like pie. Often something is hidden inside, a baby, a bean or maybe the safest version – an almond. Today as part of our ongoing National Pie Month Celebration, the pie is Galette Des Rois, a buttery crust filled with almond cream. If you find a whole almond in your slice, you get a crown!

Groundhog Day

Hey Everybody, the groundhog says six more weeks of winter! Well, it sure doesn’t feel like it here in Petaluma. It looks like some rain is coming later in the week, thankfully. Well you don’t have to worry about eating the same pie, because we are continuing to celebrate National Pie Month with a different new pie every day! Today, Monday, it is a S’mores pie with graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallows! We also have our Stout Braised Steak Cottage Pie, wheat free with creamy mashed potatoes on top!

Friday is Pie Day January 30th

pies from petaluma pie companyJanuary is just about over. How did that happen? Well if you missed the official Pie Day last Friday, have no fear, it is Friday again which is always Pie Day because it rhymes. As we do every day, we have pies in many shapes, sizes and flavors for you. We are open from 9-9 on Friday and Saturday.

This Sunday is the first day of February, which is also National Pie Month and this year, we are making a new limited edition pie EVERY DAY OF THE MONTH. That’s right, 28 new pies for you!

We hope you are taking advantage of this nice weather (even though we really would like some more rain please!). It is going to be sunny and warm all weekend, so come downtown, wander around, eat some pie.

Signs of spring…

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.

Hey! It’s February Everybody!

February is a short month, but it is all kinds of things to all kinds of people, including:

  • African American History Month
  • American Heart Month
  • Canned Food Month
  • Career and Technical Education Month
  • Creative Romance Month
  • Great American Pie Month (or National Pie Month)
  • National Cherry Month (in February?)
  • National Children’s Dental Health Month
  • National Grapefruit Month
  • National Weddings Month (in February?)

We will stick with African American History and Pie (maybe grapefruit?).

We can start with Abby Fisher, author of  “What Mrs. Fisher knows about Old Southern Cooking” published in 1881. Abby Fisher was born into slavery but eventually made it to San Francisco where she opened her own artisinal food business making “pickles, preserves, brandies, fruits, etc.”. Read more here.
