It’s pie season! Oh, who are we kidding: every season is pie season!
Savory pies, sweet pies, which do you like best?
If you’re in the Portland, Oregon area – or want to give a cool gift to someone in Portland – enter today’s 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways: I’m giving away two $25 Gift Certificates to Pacific Pie Company.
Pacific Pie Company was founded in 2009 by husband and wife team Sarah and Chris. When they moved to Portland from Australia, Chris was homesick for all things Aussie, including meat pies. Sarah started baking for him, and a business was born! That’s why you’ll see some Aussie fun throughout the newest Pacific Pie location, like this super cool, oversized “Cheers, Mate” sign. Love it!
Recently, I had the pleasure of attending a special preview of Pacific Pie Company‘s newest Portland, Oregon location at the corner of NW 23rd and Savier. The space is bright, airy, fun, and homey.
My favorite part of the venue: the chalkboard style signs:
How cool are those signs, right?!
And then, of course, there are the pies…
From classic key lime pies and apple pies, to chocolate salted caramel tarts and amazing Lamingtons (which I’m told are Aussie faves!), you’re sure to find some sweets to suit your fancy here. And I can tell you first hand that they are DELICIOUS. I took home a chocolate bourbon hazelnut pie, and that kind of goodness is sinful, I tell ya! So good!
When you think of pie, don’t forget about savory pies. One of their best sellers is the classic chicken pot pie, and they also sell beef pies, lamb pies, pulled pork pasties, spinach & feta pasties, and more yummy savory dishes. There are plenty of options here for meat lovers and vegetarians alike, and, it should be noted, that Pacific Pie Company also offers gluten free options as well.
The kind folks at Pacific Pie Company know that all of those goodies are going to also make you thirsty, so they’ve concocted a sweet list of cocktails. My favorites are the Portland Buck (House Spirits Bull Moose White Whiskey, lemon juice, Fentiman’s ginger beer) and the Pacific Sour (Novo Fogo Cahaca, bourbon, lemon juice). They also have beer, wine, and several non-alcoholic beverages.
A $25 gift certificate would cover one whole standard pie, but you could use it toward your bill for lunch, dinner, or drinks here too! They also have several adorable, fun gift items available for purchase, such as tea towels, magnets, and calendars. If you live outside of the Portland, Oregon area, still consider entering this giveaway — this would make a great gift for your friends that live here (and everyone knows someone who lives in the Portland area, right?). Or, make this your excuse to come visit in the next year! ;)
