Corn Pie

1 Comment

This pie could be confusing to some. Confusing because some people may not consider corn a proper flavor for dessert, but to them I say, why not? Why carrots but not corn?

I once was confused about corn for dessert. But one summer day in Bangkok, I think it was 2004, I spotted the corn pie at McDonald’s and was fascinated. And after tasting it, I was hooked. It was sweet and creamy, corn as dessert made perfect sense!

Happy Pi Day! (Azuki Matcha Meringue Pie)

5 Comments

The day isn’t over yet, so I can still wish you all a Happy Pi Day!

I took a chance and made a complete experiment of a pie. Remember the dessert I had in Paris I kept raving about? The azuki matcha duomo from P√Ętisserie Sadaharu Aoki? This pie is inspired by that dessert. The fillings I made went well together, but I have to work on the pie construction and topping. I also hope to find a way to make it look appetizing. It’s certainly not an appealing pie, but the flavors worked.
