In honor of our recent Friends of the Café Dinner with chef Ashley Christensen, The Factory Café is featuring a tomato pie recipe from her cookbook, Poole’s: Recipes and Stories from a Modern Diner. Ashley’s Homegrown Tomato Pie will be available from June 27th – July 1st (or until we run out of tomatoes), with lunch served from 11:00am – 2:00pm each day and Saturday Brunch from 10:00am – 2:00pm.
In her cookbook, Ashley notes, “You’ll need to bravely stack the ingredients just a bit higher than the edge of the piecrust. Have faith: it won’t overflow.” We were daring and added an extra layer of sliced tomatoes to the top.
P.S.: Don’t miss our other events happening at The Factory this summer by visiting the Events page. Lucy Buffett will be at The Factory on July 27th for a book-signing of her brand new cookbook, Gumbo Love. And Asha Gomez, our featured café chef for the next (sold out) Friends of the Café Dinner on August 24th, will be signing copies of her latest cookbook, My Two Souths, following her dinner.
