A bona-fide Brit-she has the accent to prove it-brings Potter's Pasties & Pies to downtown St. Paul. Fiona Duncan met her husband, Alec, a Minnesota native who started his cooking career at 128 Café, when the two were teaching in Peru, and the two world travelers decided to bring their version of the U.K.'s famous portable pies back to the Twin Cities. Alec"s buttery dough is formed into crescent-shaped pockets and filled with everything from meat and potatoes to Thai vegetable curry. The pasties-pronounced pah-stees-are par-baked each morning and then finish cooking on the truck. One delicious version called "the Pig" is stuffed with so much shredded pork and sweet apple that it could fuel a full day of hard labor or hiking. Make sure to save room for the truck's sweetest treat: a slice of traditional British banoffe pie that's nearly impossible to find in these parts. The pie's crust is sealed with a layer of bitter dark chocolate to balance out the sweetness of bananas, whipped cream, and caramelized sweetened condensed milk.
