Good cooks insist on good ingredients for their creations, and Melissa, the creator of the Pig & Pastry Pie Co., uses only the best for her delicious chicken pot pies and beef pot roast pies. It helps that her day job is manager of my favorite butcher shop, Lindy & Grundy. Pig & Pastry Pie Co. is her "side gig" and she personally makes the pies on her time off from the shop.
If you have never had a home made pot pie or shepherd's pie, Melissa's will set the paradigm so high that you might be unwilling to ever try to make your own. My favorite is the chicken pot pie which is loaded with wonderful bite sized pieces of chicken, carrots, and peas. This is comfort food at its most noble, with a pastry crust that is so flaky and crisp, I devoured it (and I almost never eat any crust).
When it is baked it is a meat and potato lovers paradise of a meal.
Lindy & Grundy right now, but fortunately that means you will have to go to the best butcher shop in Los Angeles:)
