Fireside Pies - #Peachfest

Yesterday marked the start of Fireside Pies' Annual Peachfest!

For the next six weeks, you'll be able to enjoy special items that incorporate peaches at all locations. Now, these aren't any ordinary peaches. Fireside has partnered with local Cooper Farms in Fairfield, TX to bring y'all some delectable peach dishes. And not only that, but Fireside also includes ingredients from local businesses throughout the menu! The local vendors include:

Dallas Mozzarella Co - Dallas, TX
Village Baking Co - Dallas, TX
Smart Flour Foods - Austin, TX
Youngs Greenhouse - Wichita, TX
Local Oven - Carrollton, TX
Village Farms - Marfa, TX
Henry's Homemade Ice Cream - Plano, TX

If that wasn't already enough to sell you on #FiresidePeachFest, get this - Fireside Pies will be donating a portion of the proceeds from this promotion to the Scottish Rite Hospital!

I had the opportunity to taste the featured peach dishes, and I was blown away!!! And because I absolutely loved the featured Speck & Peach Pie, I'm just going to get right to it. This pie is TO DIE FOR. It is perfect. Light, crispy, sweet, and savory - it literally has it all.

[Pro-tip: ask for their house-made red pepper ranch to dip your crust in!]

Their peach cocktails are awesome! I personally preferred the Tito's Peach Basil Gimlet over the Peach White Sangria (made with Bourbon), since I got a little more of the peach flavor. But as the season goes on, the peaches will become sweeter and sweeter, and more of the peach flavor will come through in these cocktails.

Not on the peach menu, but it sounded so amazing, we couldn't pass it up - the Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppadew Peppers. Yum-O!

We were a little iffy about ordering a salad, because we wanted to save all the room we could for the pizza, but we decided to try out the featured Peach & Burrata Salad anyway. No regrets here. The salad was delicious! 

And last but certainly not least, this Peach Market Crip right here. It's glazed peaches topped with oatmeal pecan streusel and Henry's Pecan Praline ice cream. Let's just say I could've had seconds AND thirds! Would you judge me if I also said that I'm going to Henry's today and grabbing a huge tub of that ice cream?

I honestly don't think I could talk up #Peachfest enough. If you can make it over to one of the four Fireside Pies locations, definitely do it within the next six weeks.
