Thanks to a reader tip, my story about pie is well underway.
This morning, I was amid pie. As in a dozen bowls of pie fillings (peach, raspberry, pumpkin, apple), and a good dozen or so par-baked pie crusts. Assembling them was self-proclaimed Pie Goddess Suzie Sidhu at Cafe Panini in Enumclaw. East Pierce county types might remember her from the Sweet Shoppe in Buckley (and she still lives in Buckley). Earlier this year she took honors at a Food Network food challenge. Her winning pie? Well, you'll have to read next Wednesday's food section to find that out.
Suzie told me interesting things about how to construct an award-winning pie, and now I'm in the mood to eat it. Which South Sound restaurants or bakeries have great pie? Especially fruit pie. I could really go for a slice of blackberry ... right.... now.
