Why is it that in life whenever we have something good, people have to take it too far and ruin it?
And I don’t care what anyone says. Pumpkin pie is THE dessert of the holiday season. Our favorite fall gourd is great after Thanksgiving dinner and even follows many into Christmas. But while we’ve come to love and cherish pumpkin pie as we know it, one restaurant has turned the entire dish into a transparent mess.
Back in September, Chef Simon Davies, chef de cuisine at Chicago’s Alinea restaurant, first took to Instagram to unveil his latest creation: the clear pumpkin pie.
But it wasn’t until the owner of Alinea shared another post of this jello-like pie that it really took off online.
Supposedly this monstrosity tastes exactly like the original but I’m skeptical because look at it.
