St. Patrick's Day
If you’re not serving corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day, chances are good you’re considering beef and Guinness stew. What if you turned that stew into a pie? Or stood tradition on its head and served a lamb pie? Or a chicken and mushroom pie?
Those suggestions come from Adam Panayiotou and Lauren Duxbury, who are opening Panbury’s Double Crust Pies. The shop, opening in April, will be in downtown Atlanta’s Sweet Auburn Curb Market in the historic municipal market building near Grady Memorial Hospital.
Duxbury grew up in South Africa, where meat pies are a favorite. “At home, pie shops are on a par with hamburger joints. Steak and kidney pie, steak and pepper pie, pies with Indian curry fillings — pies are available everywhere in a wide range of flavors,” she said.
Whether frozen or fresh baked, it’s nothing to pick up a pie and take it home to the family for dinner.
