From Our Editors
At Fork and Pie Bar, bakers turn out a menu of sweet and savory pastries composed of locally sourced ingredients. When assembling savory entree pies, the cooks stuff flaky crusts with mounds of vegetables as well as chicken, pulled pork, or grass-fed beef. They crown dessert pies with ice cream or whipped cream, elevating the velvety texture of banana pudding, sweet cherry compote, or chocolate fudge. To diversify the menu, they design a new quiche daily, handcrafting it from an egg, four cheeses, and spices such as sage or glitter. When not sating growling stomachs, the staff volunteers with local organizations and donates to charities, such as Chattanooga Regional Homeless Coalition.
