Pie for dinner? Savory pies are making a comeback in a new, trendy comfort food kind of way and they are no longer just a hiding place for that leftover mystery meat. According to the Herald Tribune, even the British are seeing a re-birth in the perception of savory pies, and though they were once regarded as a "low-rent kind of food," they are now showing up on menus in trendy restaurants, incorporating exotic flavors and re-educating the British palette. Even Virgin Atlantic Airlines is offering a savory pie in its upper class service and the dinner pie is once again crossing the Atlantic, coming to America.

Savory pies are nothing new and can be traced back to the Middle Ages. The Egyptians and the Romans encased meats in hard pastries made from flour, suet and eggs as a way to prevent spoilage, as well as a moist cooking method. Most cultures have some form of savory pie that can be associated with it, while the fillings or seasoning may take on a more regional note.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
