About Chef Char

I have been cooking for the absolute love and fun of it for many years. I grew up in a farming community on Michigan’s west side where much of my food has always come from sources such as my dad’s enormous garden, the vast orchards of a few farmer friends, the depths of the waters of the Big Lake and even the humble woods of my back yard.

Pies

Each pie is filled with locally available fruits that were harvested at the peak of freshness.  Pie dough from scratch, made with butter and a hint of pure vanilla, is rolled by hand for each pie as it is prepared for baking.  All pies are made with love and locally sourced ingredients, giving you the true farm to table experience.  Chef Char ensures the freshest pies available, so please check the website often for available flavors.
