Food Republic Threw A Summer Pie Party

On Monday, the entire Food Republic team decamped to New York's West Village for a daylong test kitchen, where editors prepared (and photographed) a range of dishes while chefs from around the city stopped by for interviews. And when the work was done? A party of course, with chefs from over a dozen restaurants providing both sweet and savory pies. See the full menu below. Jeni's Ice Cream was also on hand, dishing out scoops of pure creamy goodness. Here are some photos from the party at Little Owl: The Venue.
