Pie Party NYC

What a wonderful time I had last night (Thursday) at the totally fabulous pie party hosted by Ken (hungryrabbit) and Jackie (divathatateny). There were more pie’s than I think I have ever seen in one place and every single one absolutely delicious. The event was held at the GE Monogram design center located in Manhattan on 58th St on the Upper East side. I was drooling not just about the pies but the beautiful stoves, wall ovens, cook tops etc… The pie party was sponsored by Smirnoff Vodka, Kerrygold Butter, Dubb Pies NYC ,Harvard Common Press and GE Monogram.

I met so many of my food blog and Twitter friends in person and was so happy to get to talk and hang out with them. I met the amazing Abby Dodge, Susan (littleredkitchen), Kate (foodbabbles) Chris Β (the Peche) and many more including our fabulous hosts Ken and Jackie.

The setting was beautiful, imagine yourself surrounded by top notch kitchen appliances in a gorgeous showroom filled with some of the most amazing food bloggers, writers and cookbook authors, pies both sweet and savory as far as the eye can see, drinks flowing and delicious appetizers cooked fresh in the GE demo kitchen, it was a night to remember.

Drinks flowed

Everyone brought pie, that was a must, after all it was a pie party!! We all set our pie’s out on tables, mingled, drank and ate, watched a demo on how to make a fabulous pie crust and then we all dug into the pies. I brought a pecan pie (the pecans were macerated in cognac and then oven dried) and a goat cheese/ricotta tart topped with brandied figs and this was nestled into a tart crust with ground toasted walnuts. I cannot even begin to tell you what my favorites were they were all so good, we were encouraged to take some of each pie to taste and take home. I have a lot of pie waiting for me in the refrigerator.

Cooking Demo

When we left were given a beautiful gift bag,containing Abby Dodge’s new cookbook Mini Treats And Held Sweets, Fine Cooking magazine, stainless measuring spoons, a cake/pie server, our choice of salted or unsalted Kerrygold butter and a lovely box of Dubb pies.

Fantastic bag of goodies

Thank you Ken and Jackie for putting together a wonderful night of friends and food in the amazing GE Monogram Center. I know it must have been a tremendous amount of work and I have to say it was flawless!! I should have taken more pictures but I was so busy talking and eating and meeting people I forgot to snap the pics, I did manage to get a few pictures of the sweet pie table before we dug in.

Beautiful Pies

More pies

And more pies!!

      • They changed my medicine again and my swelling is finally starting to go down. I have more blood work next Tuesday to see where my potassium and blood levels are. Also, to determine if I need any more blood transfusions…hopefully not. I feel like a human pincushion already. Hey, that’s what I could be for Halloween πŸ˜‰

        October 26, 2012
    • Hoping the swelling goes down and the new meds do their job. Geez, you have been through hell!!

  11. What a wonderful pie party! And such a treat to meet so many terrific people.

    I hope you are doing ok with the approaching storm – thinking of you.

    • It was a wonderful night, I so enjoyed meeting so many people that I tweet or visit their blogs on a daily basis, Thanks, it’s pretty scary here, the worst is yet to come and worried about tree’s going down and power outage.

      October 29, 2012
  12. I’m late in coming to see this and my first thought is wondering if you fared the hurricane OK! I didn’t know you were in NY.

    It would be so nice to live in a big city where lots of bloggers can meet. Not so much the case in Kansas-lol! This is just lovely. I love that someone brought whoopie pies-how cute is that? Your pies sound so gourmet! Macerating the pecans in cognac was a brilliant move. I hope you’ll be sharing that recipe!

    • P.S. Your cake just got a bid for $15! The bake sale is already off to a great start. Thank you so much for your donation and your help. ❀

      November 2, 2012
      • I am thrilled, I can’t wait to see what happens on the day of the sale. You are doing a fantastic job of organizing this.

        November 2, 2012
    • Thanks so much, I fared ok, was extremely lucky in my little neighborhood. People in other parts of NY, NJ and CT, need lots and lots of help.

      November 2, 2012
      • I’m glad you’re OK but I’ve seen some of the devastating photos-it’s heart-wrenching! So glad you weren’t affected as badly.

        November 2, 2012
      • Honestly, it brings me to tears when I see the pictures. The devastation here is unprecedented. It’s a real disaster of epic proportions,
