Good Morning Pie Lovers!

Some of you may still be wondering what type of vegetable shortening Kemmy’s uses. Well it’s called Spectrum (palm oil.) The crust is made of a combination of shortening and butter. Something the French called Pâte Brisée.

The first pies were very simple and generally of the savory (meat and cheese) kind. Flaky pastry fruit-filled turnovers appeared in the early 19th century. Some pie-type foods are made for individual consumption. These portable pies...Pasties, turnovers, empanadas, pierogi, calzones...were enjoyed by working classes and sold by street vendors. Pie variations (cobblers, slumps, grunts, etc.) are endless!

The Oxford English Dictionary traces the first use of the word “pie” as it relates to food all the way back to 1303. It noted the word was well-known and popular by 1362.

Kemmy’s catered a woman’s convention, last weekend. Friday night was a Ice Cream social. We decided to use our sauce from  Brandy Apple Nutty Maples pie, as an ice cream topper. It tasted amazing on top of vanilla ice cream, with slivered almonds and chocolate chips:) Saturday morning breakfast consisted of Belgium waffles, fresh fruit, bagels w/ our popular cranberry cream cheese spread. Also, a vegetarian frittata, ham and cheese frittata, and a sausage one! For lunch, they made roasted chicken, scalloped potatoes, green beans, lemon bars, brownies, and caramel apple short bread brownies. AND to top it all off, I was invited to perform a dance for the spiritual part of this event. I danced to the song "Only Hope. " It was so much fun, and I hope all of the ladies enjoyed my dance.
