I've just got back from a trip to Chicago to see the amazing skysrapers and check out the equally amazing food there so I thought I'd share one of my favourite stops offs - this is not my Banana Cream Pie but Hoosier Mama's. The Hoosier Mama Pie Company is a cute local pie shop in the Ukrainian Village area of Chicago that makes proper old fashioned Tom & Jerry american style pies in all sorts of flavours. Here are some pics from the shop...
The spoils... Cherry, Banana Cream and Apple.
And two of my favourite buildings - Marina City and the new Trump Tower.
Now I need to try a recipe in the Rhubarb & Rose kitchen - I have my eye on this gorgeous looking recipe for strawberry & rhubarb recipe from Smitten Kitchen.
