Last evening, High 5 Pie, our friends and Capitol Hill neighbors, invited us over while the Food Network filmed in their cheery shop for a one-hour special on pies that is set to air in November. The special will also include visits to other pie shops in Seattle, Chicago, North Carolina, and Florida.
From outside the “Bakers Only” area of High 5 Pie, we could peek through the glass as the bakers showed the cameras how to make a Lemon Shaker Pie and a Cherry Almond Cutie Pie. The crew also filmed other High 5 Pie specialties: Coconut Cream, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Vanilla Cream, and Apple Petit-5s. Daniel from Caffe Vita got to enjoy his favorite pie — Marionberry — on camera.
We want to thank High 5 Pie founder Dani Cone for inviting us over to share a slice of media excitement. Dani’s pies might get used to being on TV: High 5 Pie is featured on the premiere episode of the Cooking Channel’s new show, Unique Sweets.
Food Network film crews OK, too.
This is pre-TV, folks.
