Kevin's Food Finds: January 2017

Matty Pies / Feast with the Priest

You might have heard me rave about a "devine" cherry pie with "heavenly" pastry that I bought over the holidays; well "Matty Pies" is now open for business!

“Matty Pies” are lovingly hand-crafted and made-to-order, from scratch, hearty and delicious pies. Stuffed with so much filling you won't believe it! With apologies to my mother and grandmother; Matty Pies' pastry is sturdy, yet at the same time crispy, light and flakey...it's a pie miracle! 

Matt currently takes orders for Friday or Saturday pick-up, with your choice of two Toronto locations: The Main Food Company (see article below) at Main & Gerrard or The Tulip Steakhouse at Queen & Coxwell.

Check out the "Matty Pies" filling & price list I've posted, and message Matt on Facebook to order!

"Feast with the Priest" is Matt's over-arching brand, bringing together good food and meaningful conversations in a range of ways. Follow his page for pie updates, cooking videos, dinner party opportunities, and all kinds of goodness.

And don't forget - Canadian National Pi Day is March 14th, but don't wait until then to try Matty Pies!

 

The Main Food Company

As Purveyor, Curator and Baker, Fiona is all about keeping things simple! The focus is quality-made, traditional, artisnal foods; everything she sells is made in Ontario (and sometimes just around the corner!) by people who understand that the best things in life don't need to be complicated. A selection of handmade crafts are on offer too! 

When I visted today, there was an array of frozen perogies, meat pies, lasagna, butter chicken, turkey meatballs, turkey & kale chili, Gemaro Balery gluten free breads and sweets; Sunflower Kitchen Soups; Fiona herslef makes shortbread and Irish Soda Bread on request. There is also a small but varied selection of locally batched soups, sauces and condiments. 

The decadent buttertarts I bought...almost made it home. Visit early and visit often so you don't miss out on your favorites!   152 Main Street, Toronto ON., M4E-2V8, just south of Gerrard. Get Directions
