Since today is Pi day, 3.14, let’s do a quick run-down of your favorite places to get a slab of pie in this region. What’s your favorite kind, and where do you get it? Let’s keep it clean, people.
My top pick: Any of the seasonally fresh fruit creations at Ikeda’s in Auburn. Try any of the berry varieties or peach pies. The peach ones are at the height of gooey deliciousness around July, and the peaches used are a variety of the ripest golden and white peaches grown in Placer County. Buy a whole one in the bakery, or get a slice a la mode in the burger joint. No, they do not serve Thai soup.
