Looking to add some homemade pie to your Thanksgiving meal, without all of the work in the kitchen? Seattle families, you're in luck -- we've got the scoop on two fabulous ladies who have got all of your homemade pie needs covered for the holiday. No more worrying about that last-minute run into town for a store-bought pumpkin pie... And who needs crust from the box, when a freshly made award-winning crust can be delivered to your doorstep? In a nutshell -- it's easy as pie!
From now until Wednesday (Nov. 23), local pie mavens Kate Lebo and Rachael Coyle will be offering up award-winning crusts (Kate) and pumpkin or chocolate pecan pies (Rachael) for your family's big feast, with pick-ups and deliveries available until Thanksgiving morning.
Here's the full scoop on what Coyle and Lebo will be offering:
Rachael Coyle's Pie Project
Coyle, known for her fabulous pastry work at restaurants including Le Pichet, The Herbfarm, and Café Presse, will be serving pumpkin and chocolate pecan pies for $30 apiece. Both pies are lovingly assembled by hand using super-flaky, all-butter crusts and high-quality ingredients such as local sugar pie pumpkins and delicious Valrhona bittersweet chocolate.
The pie (or pies) of your choice will be available for pick-up at Coyle's upper Fremont apartment from Wednesday afternoon through Thanksgiving morning. Pies can be purchased via PayPal; check out The Pie Project's Facebook page or email Coyle to order or obtain more details.
Kate Lebo's Award-Winning Crusts
Known for hosting a Ballard summer pie stand, her book A Commonplace Book of Pie, and for her all-pie-all-the-glorious-time blogs Good Egg and Pie-Scream, Lebo is well-loved among fellow Seattle pie lovers for her award-winning pies and crusts. To make your life a little easier this Thanksgiving, Lebo will be offering up some of her delicious frozen crusts for delivery in the Ballard area, or drop-off at an agreed-upon location. The crusts are $10 apiece, or $15 for two -- a steal! -- and you'll only have to worry about filling them with your favorite goodies before popping them into the oven.
Deliveries and drop-offs will be available until Wednesday evening; email Lebo for all the delicious details.
If you'd like to hear more about both Lebo and Coyle's work in the kitchen and beyond, stay tuned -- both lovely ladies will be featured in our upcoming December feature, "Foodies on Family Food," in company with the likes of Tom Douglas and many other Seattle foodie favorites.
Happy Thanksgiving from the ParentMap family to yours!
