Pie-day

Posted: 27th January 2012 by affehaus in food stuffs, review

Today’s pie: Strawberry-whipped cream The crust was drunk, and exhibited all the qualities a drunk crust ought; light, flaky, and uninhibited. The strawberries were from Florida, and most were on the ripe-ish side. There were one or two firm berries that could have stood a couple more days on the beach, but the bulk of […]

Today’s Pie: citrus cheese The besotted crust was (the Pie Master is pleased with the results of the ‘vodka crust’; it appears this is going to be a constant), finely layered crispy goodness. The flavor was pleasing, but delicate. The cheese base was the standard recipe; creamy and mildly sweet with a pleasant enough density […]

Today’s pie: apricot raisin sour cream Crust was of the drunk variety; very tasty, had a mild flavor that complimented the mild character of the pie body. The filling had the density of a cheese cake, but not the sweetness. The sweet character came from the fruits suspended within, and lead to a unique taste […]

Something Something de la Farce

These are real food products.  Should you want to (and I seriously can’t imagine why you would), you can get them at your local Manger Bouger (seriously?  Bouger? [polite ‘retch’]. Fortunately for me, my ‘local’ Manger Bouger is aproximately 4000 miles away. The ‘condiment’ on the jedi burger that makes it looks as if it […]

Today’s pie: bluesberry (á la mode) New and improved crust– now with vodka! The reason for this is that the alcohol has less water content, therefore less gluten is created, resulting in a (theoretically) more tender, more flaky crust. The flaky was definitely there. However, the ‘tenderness’ was a little on the firm side. That […]

This Just In: Corporation Has Head Up Ass

Doritos is running a ‘write our ad for us’ competition, which is, on the surface, a brilliant idea. They get publicity from the contest, and someone else does the brilliant creative bit so that Frito Lay doesn’t have to pony-up further monies to an advertising agency. But then they go rejecting this: Now, I’ve watched […]

Today’s pie: apple Crust was, for reasons unknown to me, exceptional.  It had a rich flavor that stimulated the palate, and the texture of the pastry-bit was perfect, achieving that holy-grail of flaky, yet tender.  Noms The only other circumstance of note was that this was a pie not constrained by the usual compliment of […]

Today’s pie: pumpkin, experimental Crust was good; had a nice flavor, but it wasn’t as flaky as the Pie Master’s crust usually is… more pliant than flaky. This may be a result of the crust being pre-baked (mod. 1), in an effort to prevent saturation from the filling. So, towards that end, the measure was […]
