Pie ‘n Poetry by Miette

Posted by pwp on September 9, 2011

On the week of Bookfest in Ann Arbor, what better idea than to create a special event combining two art forms, food (pie) and poetry. This lovely idea naturally came from Miette, which you can find every Wednesday at the Evening Farmers’ Market. All treats from Miette are made from fresh local Michigan ingredients and low sugar. These includes pastries such as brioche au chocolat, fruit tarts and jams, among other delicious and authentic items. If you have not tried them yet, you know what do every Wednesday evening from now on…

This week Elizabeth (Lizzie) joined Miette to offer an enchanting experience to the few lucky and brave customers who showed up despite the cool and rainy evening: each slice of pie came with a personalized poem typed by Lizzie on the spot on a 1936 Remington typewriter! What a delight!

Here are some of my favorite moments:

Bravo Michelle for the incredible work you did on this awesome awesome banner!!! Stunning!

And a big Thank you to you, Aaron, for all your help on these magnificent pies!Here is Nick exchanging ideas with Lizzie before she start typing his poem…

And Lizzie promptly types away her poem on this gorgeous typewriter….
