Oprah's Favorite Pie Hails from This Beach Town
Our stomachs are growling.
Spring is for tulips, rhubarb, and strawberries. Spring is also for dining on strawberry-rhubarb pies on the back porch (perhaps with a vase of those spring-blooming beauts on the table, please and thank you).
And when you're not baking up your own dessert from scratch, where's one of the best seaside spots to pick up a pie? Centerville Pie Company in Cape Cod, of course — and Oprah agrees. "When they opened their small Cape Cod pie shop in 2009, long-time friends Laurie Bowen and Kristin Broadley were just enthusiastic bakers looking to serve local clientele," writer Larry Olmsted reports in a recent article in USA TODAY. "Then media megastar Oprah Winfrey fell in love with 'The Pie Ladies,' had them on her show, and named their pies to her annual Oprah’s Favorite Things list three times, most recently in 2017."

While there are plenty of sweet pies on Centerville Pie Company's menu, Orpah's favorite is actually the chicken pie, on the shop's savory lineup. “Each pie is chock-full of so much chicken," Winfrey has commented of the pie. "I've got to tell you, you won't believe it. Order two or three and put them in your freezer." Check out the full menu here.
We don't know about you, but our mouths are watering for a seasonal lobster pie. We hope Ms. Winfrey approves.
