Stircrazy Tourtière – Contributed by Noni Castonguay

stircrazy-tourtiereJen Cerny and Noni Castonguay are the owners of Stircrazy Catering. While the duo caters a wide variety of parties across the city, it’s their tourtière that is creating a buzz around this time of year. They started making tourtière about 8 years ago. Word of mouth spread and in addition to selling them to their private clientele, they were exclusively carried by ‘A Taste of Quebec’ when it was located in the Distillery District. The shop is now gone, but their pie lives on! Here’s Noni, telling their delicious story.

 
“Our pie is a traditional French Canadian tourtière made with local Ontario pork and a special blend of herbs and spices from the Charlevoix region of Quebec. We work in small batches, rolling out each pie by hand.  Our flaky crust is all butter.  Definitely not fast food, but our families, friends and clients think it’s well worth the effort!  We start the process in early September, taking advantage of the delicious blue plums that come from the Niagara region.  Our blue plum chutney is slightly sweet and sharp – a perfect accompaniment to our tourtière.

 
Over the years our tourtières have evolved into a holiday tradition for our many clients in Cabbagetown (ask around!) who come to my front door to pick up their pies and chutney in early December. The price of our tourtière is $36 and a jar of our chutney is $5.50. We sell them frozen so you can always have a classic Canadian dinner on hand. They feed 6-8.
