3 products to celebrate black female chefs

peach pie

Maia Harrell opened Decatur-based Lord of the Pies in April 2020 to share her love of all things encased in a crust. If he needs a crust, she says, she’ll bake him. Its regular offerings are sweet pies, including peanut butter, brown butter bourbon pecan and lime, as well as cobblers and fruit crumbles. Its savory offerings include barbecue chicken and buffalo chicken pies, leek and potato patties, and savory tomato pies. We decided to try the peach cobbler, a summer classic. His individually sized cobbler is in a 4 inch by 5 inch aluminum pan. It might have been enough to feed two, but we didn’t want to share. The skillet is topped with peaches simmered in bourbon and spices (we smell the nutmeg!), then the filling is topped with an all-butter pie crust. The pies are refrigerated, with heating or freezing instructions, if you want to refuel. Options include vegan and gluten-free.

$10 per peach cobbler. Other pies include hand pies for $6, mini 4-inch pies for $7, and 9-inch pies for $32. Available at Decatur, Oakhurst, Ponce City Market and Virginia-Highland Farmers Markets, and at lord-of-the-pies.com for pickup at a farmers market or Decatur’s commercial kitchen. Local delivery and national shipping available.

Thick as thieves pecan pie ice cream

A classic pecan pie turned into ice cream? Yes please. If you’re the pie a la mode type, this is the ice cream for you. Work your way through crystallized brown sugar and caramel at the top of your pint, to creamy buttery pecan ice cream. Along the way, you’ll sample praline pecans, bits of pie crust, and caramel swirls. It’s the best of pie and ice cream, all in one container. It’s the specialty of chef Liz Rogers, who created this line of what she calls two-in-one desserts, pairing pastries with artisanal ice cream. Pecan Pie is one of seven flavors; others include caramel pound cake, red velvet cheesecake, and sweet potato pie.

$5.99 per 16 oz container. Available at Kroger, Target and Walmart, or at socreamalicious.com.
