Meat á la Mode by Kristina Von Kroug

Inspired by family traditions as well as by historical recipes and cooking techniques, Meat á la Mode puts a new twist on classic comfort food. My meat pies and savory ice creams explore the flavors of more rarely used game meats such as rabbit, oxtail, or alligator in addition to serving up childhood favorites like chicken noodle soup or macaroni and cheese -- all in pie form! Meat á la Mode strives to create a journey of taste encased in a golden, flaky crust.

Meat á la Mode's unique meat pies entice the discerning carnivore with mouth-watering flavor combinations, two types of pastry, and a decadent edible gold topping.

Keep watching -- I'm working hard to build a little emPIEre...

YELP! Dinosaurs!

If you love Meat á la Mode and have attended any of my tasting events or ordered a specialty pie from me, please head to Yelp and spread the good word! I'm really excited to see more reviews! If you have a moment, please tell me which of my pies you have experienced and what you thought of it! I'd also love to hear about the pies that you have yet to experience that you are looking forward to!

Next up, my Lovies: Dinosaur pie.

My exotic meat pies know NO LIMITS! I have created two new versions of this recipe that are available on a limited basis -- One is alligator in a delightful tomato base with a hint of spice that screams [insert pterodactyl screech here] prehistoric perfection! The other is gator in a light fennel cream sauce that is a lovely, delicate compliment to the flaky crust... It's Deliciousaurus.

Luxury sauteed in opulence, wrapped in genius...

I have had a lot of pie baking to do this week -- and more over the weekend... Pie is my life!

I have previously sung the praises of Chop Butchery -- AGAIN this week they impress. The meat orders I placed for the coming days did not arrive to their standards and they are going out of their way to make sure that I receive the very best meaty morsels for Meat á la Mode. They have great connections, very high standards and a supreme product that adds another bit of luxury to my tasty little pies. That's right folks; luxury for your tongue, opulence in your belly... genius in pie form.

I haven't posted photos lately... That will change...NOW!:
