fudo finds friday: blackbird pie company

Blackbird Pie Company in Fredericksburg Virginia

Our last post featured a giveaway. If you haven’t commented and added your name please click here and do so. We are giving away a lovely hand carved cutting board. We found the cutting board at the farmers market, a hub for artesian products and fresh produce. These days you may find some of the same produce from the farmers markets on the tables of your local restaurants. It is wonderful to see that more and more restaurants are keeping the food seasonal and local. One such restaurant is called Poppy Hill Tuscan Kitchen.

From the folks at Poppy Hill Tuscan Kitchen comes Blackbird Pie Company. “Scott Mahar is an acclaimed executive chef who brings his dedication to whole foods and local sourcing with him to Blackbird Pie Company. He is currently the Executive Chef at Poppy Hill Tuscan Kitchen in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Under Chef Scott’s direction, Poppy Hill was named one of the “Top 10 Farm to Table Restaurants” by Bon Appetit & Gourmet Magazine’s official website, epicurious.com.”

“Ingrid Mahar is a restaurateur and luxury hospitality professional with a career spanning over 20 years. Her love of hand-crafted artisanal foods has come full circle with the creation of Blackbird Pie Company in 2011. She currently co-owns, with her husband, Scott Mahar, Poppy Hill. Blackbird Pie Company is dedicated to artisanal production of each and every pie, every day. Chef created, seasonally inspired and hand crafted every Blackbird Pie is fresh and delicious.”

And, yes, these pies are fresh and delicious as well as beautiful! We had an opportunity to go to a pie tasting and were more than happy to sample some of the fall favorites. Our favorite was the chocolate pecan. The sample was sinful and to be honest we could have eaten the whole pie. It was an Oliver like moment: “More please.” We really enjoyed speaking with Ingrid Mahar, she is genuine and it shows that she loves baking these pies. Having eaten at Poppy Hill we were not surprised by the superiority of these delicious pies.

Many of the popular pies for the holiday include pumpkin with mascarpone cream, sweet potato with pecan praline, roasted apple with pear and pralines, apple with caramel, chocolate pecan and pecan bourbon. We know. You are thinking, “I need one of those pies.” We couldn’t agree more as we ordered the chocolate pecan which we will pick up the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. You don’t need to live locally to enjoy a Blackbird creation. They are happy to ship anywhere in the country.

Last week we introduced you to Cakewalk, maker of the adorable pie pop. This week we’ve put Blackbird Pie Company in the spotlight for they make the most sinfully delicious full size pies that are a must on your holiday table. You will not have to travel far to order your favorite pies.

    Looks like a great pie making venture! I love making pies, but it would be great for one Thanksgiving to buy a decent pie other than a supermarket one. Nice post.

    Great to find businesses with a real passion for what they are doing, and these artisan pies look delicious and comforting. I really enjoy your Fudo Finds Fridays series (as well as Worldly Wednesdays).

    thanks for coming over my way – it brought me back to you – what an awesome blog. Talk of that pumpkin mascapone pie has inspired me. And made me very, very hungry. We don’t have Blackbird pies here in Dubai, so I’m going to have to make my own….

    I need a pie. Like, right now!

    Wow! does that pie ever look delicious. The crust looks perfectly flakey…..and I think it’s one of the prettiest pies I’ve ever seen. So glad you shared this company’s info. I would eat that for breakfast (in addition to the rest of the day).

    What a beautiful pie! I will be making a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving too…but somehow I doubt it will look as stunning as that one. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
