Stuck on making the same ol' boring Thanksgiving side dishes? Need to amp up your recipe collection? Sister Pie and Risky Biscuits are collaborating this year to help Detroiters bring a little local flavor into the kitchen during this day of thanks.
The duo has created cards featuring signature recipes for autumn greens gratin, maple-glazed carrots and parsnips, and pistachioed cranberry sauce.
The cards will be sold alongside the needed ingredients at Parker Street Market in West Village, where Sister Pie's baked goods are already for sale. Don't need all items on the list? No problem. Buy what you need, and leave what you don't.
Each card costs $3.50 and comes with a custom drawing by local illustrator Meagan Elliott. Sister Pie's Lisa Ludwinski says pre-order pies are sold out for the Turkey Day season, but customers can pick up ready-made ones on a first-come, first-serve basis on November 25-26.
As for the progress on the brick-and-mortar bake shop, Ludwinski tells Eater in an email that renovations of her space are going great. "We are super close to submitting our floor plan to the city for review—fingers crossed! We're still slated for an Apri-ish opening AND we bought our first official piece of oven equipment! A freezer! Got a good deal too—a pie barter was included in the invoice."
In the meantime, Sister Pie is previewing several breakfast dishes for customers on Tuesdays at Parker Street Market. This week, customers got to try out Ludwinski's potato galettes, topped with an over-easy egg.
