Nomadic Pies -- Kennett Square


#1

Has anyone ever tried the fruit pies from this relatively new place in Kennett? Their online menu looks impressive AND pretty pricey. http://www.nomadicpies.com/#!menu/ch8j They sell by the slice, so I guess that’s a safe way to try without making a major investment ($23 for a 9" pie!). But I’d love to hear from anyone who’s tried any of their fruit pies.

And while I’m on the subject of pie – who else in southern Chesco makes really great fruit pies? Thanks!

Okay… so I’ll reply to my own post. My Saturday errands took me right by Nomadic Pies yesterday so I stopped in. It smelled tantalizingly yummy in there, but the baked goods cases were sparsely stocked. In addition to slices, they also sell 5" pies for $5.50 – a nice idea and a good size for sharing. But they only had two varieties of pies in that size – apple and apple crumb. I was told there were a few other kinds available by the slice, and that if I phoned in advance I could request other varieties, assuming they had the ingredients on hand. Anyway, I bought the apple crumb pie and served it for dessert last night. It was okay, but not rave-worthy. There was lots of “crumb” (granola/brown sugar) and not very much apple. Will I go back? Maybe for a special order.

Hm, you’re not making it sound like I need to go over there!

I wouldn’t make a special trip there unless I called ahead either to find out what they’ve got that day or to place an order. That said, if you find yourself strolling along State St., stop in for a sniff, a peek and maybe a purchase.

If you were looking for great pie, where would you shop?

Believe it or not I have never bought a pie. I make my own…or get friends to make them for me!


#6

Not only do I believe it… I’m also not surprised. So let’s see… Since I rarely bake, I guess I ought to find a friend who does. Hmmm… :wink:

I am about to start auditioning recipes for sweet potato pie, so there may be some spots open for taste testers!
