National Pie Day is today, January 23rd! If you’re in Baltimore and want to celebrate there is no greater place to do so than Dangerously Delicious Pies.
The holiday was actually started in the 70s by some Colorado dude, Charlie Papazian, that declared his birthday to be National Pie Day. The official holiday was then taken over by The American Pie Council (yes that is totally a thing) in 1986.
Here’s an uplifting message from the Pie Council:
“We Are Encouraging You To Celebrate By Hosting Pie Parties With Friends, Co-Workers And Family. Sharing Pie Is A Great Way To Show Your Love And Friendship. It’s Also A Great Way To Show People That You Appreciate What They Do For You Throughout The Year, So Donate Some Pies To Your Local Police And Fire Departments. They Really Appreciate It.”
Dangerously Delicious Pies was founded by rock and roll front man and go-to pie guy Rodney Henry. Before the shop opened, Rodney used to sell his pies at his merch table during his concert tours. Now the Dangerously Delicious store has a huge selection of tasty, made-from-scratch sweet and savory pies to choose from.
If you get the chance, please make a stop at Dangerously Delicious. One of my favorite flavors is the Baltimore Bomb (pictured below) – a pie packed with Berger Cookies and a vanilla chess filling. Recently, I’ve become quite enamored with their pancake flavored pies as well. And if you’re in the mood for something savory, you gotta check out the Steak Mushroom Onion and Gruyere pie.
Happy National Pie Day!
