I love pie. Love to bake it. Love to eat it. I've heard some great things about Brooklyn's new pie shop, Four & Twenty Blackbirds, but I've always had bad luck or bad timing when comes to actually getting over to 3rd avenue to check it out. But this week I came across an offer I couldn't refuse...
If you don't already subscribe to Tasting Table, you should because then you'll get access to exclusive deals, like this special pie flight from Four & Twenty Blackbirds. Individual slices regularly go for $4.50 each. Three different pie slices for $10? Yes, please.
I hit this special on Tuesday and got a slice of the Apple Bourbon, the Farmer's Cheese and the special for Tasting Table readers only Salty Honey pie. Each slice was delicious in it's own way. The Apple Bourbon slice was heavy on the bourbon (this one's for your, Blondie!) and the apples were sweet and tender. The Farmer's Cheese pie was mildly sweet with a pleasant scattering of herbs. And the Salty Honey...mmm...the Salty Honey had almost a custardlike quality. I loved this sweet and salty combo. The pie flight special is an excellent deal and is good through Friday (though the pie selection varies daily and the distribution is at the discretion of the management). Don't miss out.
