Concerned over the state of fried pastry consumption one hundred years from now, I thought I would do my bit for history. When people go to the gas station or the corner grocery, or just stop somewhere to pick up a pack of smokes, what kind of pies will they be able to purchase on impulse? If Hubig's happens to go out of business in the next century (Heaven forbid!) some documentary evidence should be left behind to resurrect New Orleans' single serving, portable pie culture.
I stopped by the bakery on Dauphine Street and picked up a few cases for the time capsule I'm working on.
