This season, Chef Lockhart-Davis is helping you to relish and relax from some of that oven time--whilst still making you look like a graduated pastry pro at your pre-holiday events and upcoming holiday feasts--with her luscious, talk-of-the-town, Sweet Potato Pies.

This pie is being buzzed about as "lively", "vibrant", and delightfully "complex", whilst still showcasing the unique, organic personality of the sweet potato itself.

These silky, out-of-this-universe and sustainably-produced Sweet Potato pies are on sale through Sunday, December 20th, for just $24.95--and for a mere $4.00 extra, let the dream-inducing, homemade Bourbon-Vanilla Whipped Cream Chef Lockhart-Davis has spun up, send your tastebuds into even sweeter ecstasy along this ultimate dessert experience. And, it arrives--true to sustainability itself--in a lovely, reusable jar.
