The Proof Is In The Pie

PHILADELPHIA, PA –

Magpie, a charming pie shop located at 1622 South Street, is full of the savory and the sweet. Opened in September of 2012, the store sticks to simple yet creative seasonal menus that are sure to please.

Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by crisp yellow walls and comfortable seating (three tables with a booth and a chair side, or the long countertop, close to the pies).

According to store owner Holly Ricciardi, Magpie gets its name from “a type of bird known for gathering things it likes and bringing them back to its nest.” Holly describes herself as seeing the pie shell as a nest, where she gathers to it what she likes. She says she is inspired mostly by classic pies that she gives a “face lift,” pairing one element she loves from a pie with another element.

Her inventive baking philosophy is definitely seen in the store’s pies.

“Growing up for me, there was a pie made almost every week for dessert,” Ricciardi says. “It’s a feel-good food that needs a comeback. When developing the menu, I knew that it was going to be one that the seasons would predict.”

Ricciardi also wanted to keep the food simple.

“A great cup of coffee and a creamy scoop of vanilla ice cream is all a great slice of pie needs”

This season, if you’re craving an entree, order a chicken & biscuit, BBQ pulled pork, or mac & cheese pot pie. Looking for a vegetarian option? Opt for the molé chili frito pot pie. All “Savory” pot pies are served with lightly-dressed salad, and some pies with coleslaw and a pickle. For a “Sweet” dessert, select from peach bourbon, blueberry crumb, vanilla custard, or butterscotch bourbon pie.

Ricciardi says that Magpie offers “a variety of seasonal pies, so don’t be surprised to come in and see new pies on the menu.”

The chicken & biscuit pot pie will leave you with no regrets. Take in the thin but crispy crust, which is not flaky or oily. You’ll revel in the smart portioning that satisfies but leaves room for dessert. August’s Granola Smore pie has a homemade granola crust, thicker at the top portion of the pie, and filled with a sort of mix between chocolate custard and pudding inside. Relish the special toasted marshmallow topping and the blend of textures that meet your lips.

At $6 or less a dessert pie and $10 or less an entrée pie, you’ll leave knowing you not only got a deal but a hearty, delectable treat.

You can also order a pie shake, a Bassetts Vanilla Ice Cream shake blended with a slice of pie. Milkshakes can be made with any seasonal pie, and Ricciardi calls them a “must try.” She also says that Magpie has weekend quiches and seasonal house-made ice cream, and La Combe and Mighty Leaf Tea for a pick-me-up.

For special deals, celebrate Magpie’s September anniversary with a free slice of  Butterscotch Bourbon, the store’s signature pie that is sold year-round, and for $3.14 on National Pi Day.

If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at pie-baking, come in for a pie class that Ricciardi personally teaches with an assistant baker. According to one store worker, classes are usually two hours long and sometimes demonstrate the lattice method. “We have classes year round, and we’re already booking into November,” Ricciardi states.

  • Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

  • Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
