Dangerously Delicious Pies on Throwdown
Food Network is enamored with Baltimore’s Dangerously Delicious Pies. As early as 2005, the famed Federal Hill bakery was featured in the pages of Everyday with Rachael Ray. In 2008 they were featured on the first episode of Road Tasted with the Neely’s. In that episode Pat and Gina learned about their wildly popular savory pies like the Steak Mushroom Onion and Gruyere and the Hot Rod Potato.
In 2009 Charmed City Cakes chef/owner Duff Goldman named their Baltimore Bomb Pie the “Best Thing He Ever Ate.” Goldman is largely regarded as an expert in all things Baltimore as well as being the star of Food Network’s Ace of Cakes. That same year Dangerously Delicious Pies was featured on Paula Deen’s Food Network show, Paula’s Best Dishes.
This week FN returns to Federal Hill with Bobby Flay challenging owner Rodney Henry to a Quiche Throwdown. Henry started Dangerously Delicious Pies ten years ago and they sell sweet pies, savory pies and quiche. It’s been said (and quite accurately, too) that men do not eat quiche but the exception to that rule would have to be quiche prepared by an Iron Chef. Henry’s has some innovative flavor combinations like Spinach Goat Cheese, Crab and Cheddar and the very manly Bacon Onion Gruyere. So what will Flay counter with? Who wants to bet it involves chilies?
This episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay airs Wednesday at 8PM ET.
