The Chef Traveler had a bit of inspiration that we wanted to pass on: “Some artists were moved to write a song, others were motivated to write a poem. I’m a chef so I decided to create a recipe…. Obama Thanksgiving Pie”
From the Chef
Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner I decided to come up with a pie recipe. It had to be different, and it had to represent the diversity of Obama’s upbringing. Quite a challenge but I think it could be done, what do you think?
Yes we can!
No self respecting african american would leave sweet potato pie off the thanksgiving dessert table, so I decided to start with that. I decided to use allspice to represent all of the people coming together for a common cause (o.k. that’s a stretch). I also decided to use light brown sugar to resemble our president-elect’s light brown skin (o.k. this is getting bad). Do you have faith I can still salvage this pie?
