Let Them Eat Pie!

In anticipation of Pi Day on 3.14, join Village Preservation after hours at Once Upon a Tart for a culinary trip through time. Owner and chef Alicia Walter will demonstrate how three pies are made, while Historic Gastronomist Sarah Lohman and Walter discuss the history of pie in America, and how new waves of immigration played a role in our food customs and culture. Once Upon a Tart has been a South Village staple since 1905, when it was just one of many Italian-owned and operated shops in the neighborhood. By the mid-1900s it was Portuguese-owned, reflecting a new demographic living and working in the South Village. Walter’s pie demonstrations will reflect the history of the neighborhood and the bakery, and you’ll have a chance to try each treat.
