It’s not like Sam Jacobson needs help making wonderful pies at East Passyunk’s Stargazy but that doesn’t mean he’ll turn down a good idea.
Today and through the rest of the week, he’s teamed up with Chris Kearse of Will BYOB to create a special dessert pie. Kearse took Epoisses de Bourgogne cheese and combined it with chopped chestnuts and handed it over to Jacobson, who baked it into the middle of his Bosc Pear Pie.
The results can be yours through the rest of the week, or until they’re all sold out.
Will BYOB on Passyunk Avenue is restarting its Tuesday ingredient focused menus. On Tuesday, October 20th, pumpkin will be the featured ingredient. On Tuesday, November 17th, it will be all about the pork. December rounds out the year with a lobster focused menu on Tuesday, December 15th.
The dinners are $55 per person and of course Will is BYOB.

But Sbraga got better, too. Read more »
