Celebrate National Pie Day with free Boston Cream Pie (Boston, Mass)

Jan. 23 is National Pie Day. And that's a reason for 21-gun salutes at the Omni Parker House, which plans to celebrate this culinary festival by honoring the dessert that it pioneered --- the Boston cream pie.

Actually, the Omni Parker House plans to stretch Pie Day into extra innings and make it a three-day event. Starting at 4 p.m., staffers plan to hand out free slices of this signature pie in the hotel's lobby --- so long as the supply lasts. The staff thinks such a popular item could go fast.

What's more, the hotel says it will make a donation to the Charlestown Boys & Girls Club for every piece of Boston cream pie sold in the Parker's Restaurant from today through Sunday.

... In the annals of dessert-trolley lore, the Boston cream pie looms large. According to a hotel press release, the 19th century house chef who invented the Boston cream pie is more of a crusty eminence than Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines put together.

What has evolved into the official Massachusetts Dessert traces its humble origins to 1855 when the hotel's kitchen staff, in a stroke of uber-chef genius, decided to drizzle chocolate icing onto a sponge cake filled with vanilla custard. The rest, as they say, is history.

Bon appetit.

    I wonder what happened to Marie Callendar's semi-annual pie sale. All pies were $6.99 plus tin.
