March 14 is the day to celebrate the mathematical constant pi (3.14, or π). It’s a most marvelous excuse to eat lots of pie, be it sweet or savory, palm-sized, a slice, or the whole dang thing — nobody’s judging. To help plan your pi(e) celebration, here are some delicious suggestions to consider:
Snohomish Pie Company has a pie-stravaganza planned for March 14, creating special mini 3-inch pies with the pi symbol on top, 9-inch whole pies, plus cookies and cinnamon rolls. It is accepting online pre-orders for Pi Day from March 1 to 7, with two pickup dates, and if you’re in the neighborhood, there will be some items available for first-come, first-served. The flagship shop is in historic downtown Snohomish, and the other is at Montlake Terrace.
314 Pie Food Truck was originally inspired by the popular savory hand pies in New Zealand, and the menu of hearty meat and vegetable pies is comfort food bliss wrapped in buttery crusts. The fillings include a chicken cordon bleu, lamb with a stout beer gravy, vegetable curry, wild mushroom, and a classic chicken pot pie. It also does sweet fillings, like caramel apple and butterscotch pecan, plus seasonal specials. The food truck has regular stops all over the Eastside, posting dates and locations on the website. There also is home delivery, and folks can stock up, since the single-serve pies freeze well.
