Choco Coco Tango and Strawberry Cream

First off, I wanted to thank the Providence Phoenix for our Editor's Pick in the recent Best of Providence issue. We were awarded "The Best Non-Maternal Way To His Heart". Which fits us to a tee.

But thanks isn't why the Phoenix loves us, or even why you're here. You'd like to know what the pie of the week is and how to get it. Alright!

This week we're featuring my Choco Coco Tango. Now, those of y'all have have had my Coconut Cream Pie understand that I don't make just any old ordinary Coconut Cream. This is a thick, gooey, luscious Coconut with high notes of fresh vanilla tons of shredded coconut throughout. I like to use the 1923 version of the recipe, which means before canning and the 50's Cult of the Housewife. Which means a better, older, richer process. And it shows in the pie.

But I go on, the Choco Coco Tango is a dark chocolate crust with a layer of chocolate in the bottom of the shell, topped with that beautiful, old Coconut Cream recipe. If you don't like coconut, you'll still love this. Decadent doesn't even cover it.

As always, our second flavor is for those who don't like chocolate or want something not quite as rich. Something simple and sweet, just a little this side of normal fair. For y'all we've got my world class Strawberry Cream. Halfway between a custard and a mousse, this is a soft, fresh and spingy little pie that pushes a strawberry to its' limits!

Both can be done Gluten Free, but not diabetic or vegan. I'll have something more appropriate for both next week. You can always order something special, if you have any dietary needs.

You can find these pies and at least one Cutie baker at the Hope Artist Village this Saturday from 10am until 2pm. If you'd like home delivery, just drop us an email or give a call to our office. As always you can pick up, if that's your preference, at Tina's Jamaican Restaurant on Atwell's Ave. right across from the Blue Grotto. Keep in mind, pick up requires at least 24 hours notice.

Thanks so much, again, guys! I know a whole lot of y'all voted for us (write in) for the Reader's Best Of, and I greatly appreciate it. Hope to see you at a market or on the delivery route soon. And our Spring/Summer market schedule is coming soon!

All our best!
