Canadien Pork Pie

Hughlipton Sep 30, 2009 04:27 PM

I am giving thought to doing a buffet dinner for Christmas Eve serving Canadien Pork Pie. Anybody have any information on a caterer who might be in to doing such an event (and is capable of doing so)?

    Luc, the owner of Soleil on Westwood Blvd is French Canadian from Quebec - does great catering (he catered our wedding and it was terrific) - I am sure he could execute a pork pie.

      Do you mean tourtière? If so, ask at Café Casse-Croûte in Anaheim. I love their tourtière, even though eating it means having to be the youngest person in the room by 30+ years.

      656 S Brookhurst St, Anaheim, CA 92804

        As a son of two French Canadians (actually Acadian from N.B.) I cannot tell you how disappointed my dad and I were both of the times we went to Cafe Casse Croute- we went twice just to give them a chance. It's not even close.

        I wish that the Pied du Cochon guys in Montreal would open a location in LA. It would kill places like Animal and the like. There's a reason most of my relatives push 300 lbs or like to wear their winter coats way into the spring.

        You could make the pie. It's really not that hard if you get the crust right. Heck I'll talk to my dad about it. How many do you want it to serve? It may take one or two days to get back to you on this... some maple sugar pie, some Alpine Beer, some cigs and you're set.

          It's specifically the tourtière at Casse Croute that I like. The other food is just sort of OK. The wine "list" is truly awful -- Château Dépanneur quality.

          I want someone to open a cabane à sucre here, that's what I want. Au Pied de Cochon would be fine but I don't want another fancy restaurant.

        I'm more than interested.
