Left Fork Grill

Last year I wanted to celebrate my birthday with my mom's homemade chocolate cream pie. But with mom miles away, and not a pie dish to my name, I set out in search of a local bakery that either sold them--or was willing to make one as a special request. Sadly, I was SOL.

Fortunately by the time this year came along Salt Lake Magazine had published its 11th Annual Dining Awards, giving me the opportunity to read about Left Fork Grill, home of the "Best Breakfast" in town and apparently, some pretty spectacular pies.

I phoned Left Fork Grill about a week out from my birthday and was thrilled to learn that indeed they could whip up a chocolate cream pie to order. I was feeling extra special when the woman on the other end of the line directed me to retrieve my pie "after 11:00 a.m." on said day. My birthday pie was not going to be made the night before.

$21.75 with tax, Left Fork Grill's chocolate cream pie even came in a hefty Pyrex dish.

First slice of the pie...

Thankfully my mom's on dial-up and doesn't hit the internet much, because I have to confess that this little slice of pie takes the cake! Day one the crust was so incredibly fresh and even a little bit salty. And just as a fresh pie should, this baby digressed in flavor just slightly each day over the four days it took us to polish it off, suggesting the obvious: a pie this tasty is meant to be enjoyed, not preserved.
