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.

Put On Your Pork Pie Hats!

I am putting together a tropical, summertime pie right now for three reasons:

1. I'm hoping it encourages the sun to grace this gray State.

2. As an homage to the island where my husband-to-be proposed and the Island that will see "The End" this Sunday night (and to all my fellow Losties out there).

3. Because it's freaking delicious, and I love food porn.

So here's the deal -- It's Kalua pig, slow cooked with tender pieces of sweet coconut and drizzled with an amazing mango barbecue sauce. I also have a bit of a spicy mango sorbet to top these pies like a sunset melting into a golden beach of hot, flaky crust.... This is the kind of pie you take a snapshot of and Scotch tape to your cubicle wall. Put on your pork pie hats and join me in paradise...
