Want to wow all your guests this Thanksgiving? Then take a cue from e.leaven. You’re probably familiar with their Center Street restaurant, but e.leaven also has a booming catering business.
How do they impress everyone at dinner parties, you wonder? With individual-sized pies. “It is a great show-stopper when you have a seated dinner, and each guest gets their own individual pecan pie with homemade whipped cream,” said owner Molly Frobouck. “It’s a better presentation than cutting a piece of pie, but more time consuming, too. This December we have some night-time holiday parties that will be getting these for their dessert.”
Thanks to the Froboucks for e.leaven’s pecan pie recipe (simply follow these instructions but use small pie tins to make personal pies). And remember, this holiday season, e.leaven will make pies for you in apple, pecan or pumpkin if you would rather order than make it yourself (they also rent the restaurant space at night for holiday parties, so email Molly at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.)
