There have been many changes in eating habits over the last year. With reports of economic uncertainty people have turned to homey cuisine. We're seeing lots of soups and comfort foods on our menus. One great thing it has brought back is PIE! We all love pie; from the holiday classics to our summer favorites. To my delight in the burgeoning dessert trend is a great little place called Humble Pie. Located in Downtown Penngrove - well ok on the main street, really the only street with stores - is this great new restaurant and pie shop (Pie-eria?). Chef Miriam is making some creative and tasty treats. I have been recommending her to many customers for that different twist on party desserts; from weddings to bar mitzvahs she has wowed them all. Over Thanksgiving she only made 35 pies and sold out quickly. One of my staff was able to get her hands on the vanilla berry with graham cracker crust. While trying to hold my self back from all of the eating this week I know that I will give in.
If you want a quaint dining experience stop in for dinner at the restaurant too. They offer an artisan menu Wednesday through Sunday with produce from their own garden. It's a good creative menu but with a homey feel. There are only about 15 seats, so get there early. And save room for dessert!
