I’m a visual storyteller and one of the things I like is to do is to draw food. I was at an Illuminating Women event recently in June where there were a couple of cooking demonstrations for that month’s theme. Both chefs were interesting and the sample salads they made were tasty. But when that was over and Seattle-based chef Logan Niles brought out her frozen pot pies to sell, that’s when my interest in drawing the scene was piqued! Logan is very personable and very clearly connected to and proud of her products. All the pot pies in the boxes were lined up and so attractive. I liked how each one was handmade and each has cut outs of pastry to identify the type of pie. It was clear that Logan has lots of experience with these because although the pies were different because of ingredients, all were regular in size and similar in shape. I admire the hours that have been spent to master that technique.
I got a couple of pies to try at home. They were pre-baked then frozen so all I needed to do was finish the baking to heat and brown them. And when I got to eat mine, yum! I had fun putting together this collage of Logan and her pot pies together. If you’re interested in trying out her pot pies, Logan sells them online through her company Pot Pie Factory.
