My dad's favourite pie was pumpkin pie. As he got on in years he forgot what day it was or who told him what but he always loved Allen's pumpkin pies. "Put lots of ginger" he would tell him. He loved that bite that the ginger gave the pumpkin pie. It's really simple yet not. It's the right balance between consistency, spices, and sweetness. Using real ingredients helps. But the baking is another story. Like the old saying goes, patience is a virtue....you can't hurry love and you can't hurry a perfectly baked pumpkin pie. You know you hit the right notes when it's soft yet firm, never runny and smooth on your palate. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! and dad I hope you are enjoying a piece....

My parents were part of the legacy of Lichee Gardens. Food has always fascinated me. My dad always told me to never serve any food that you wouldn't eat yourself. I wanted to bring back the nostalgia of yesteryear, classic food that we knew as a child.
