Buttermilk PieMonday, March 30, 2009
In last week's B'ham News, there was an article about Robyn Poarch of Porch Pies who grew up here in Alabama and is now in Hollywood, California selling her pies for $30-$35/ea. She says:
"Back home, they'd never pay $30 for those pies," Poarch says. "But out here, there are people who have never heard of a chocolate chess pie or a buttermilk pie. The buttermilk recipe is so easy, it's embarrassing. It's our best-seller, but it's very hard to describe a buttermilk pie. I tell them the buttermilk is kind of like a Southern creme brulee."
