From humble origins in the Welsh countryside, it all started with the pasty (PAST-ee). Back when Melissa's Great-Grandfather, Grampa Evans, biked to work at the local dairy farm, his basket held several pasties and a thermos of tea. Filled with leftovers from the previous night's supper and wrapped in a pastry crust, the pasties were a delicious portable lunch. Melissa's mother, Jill, brought the family recipe with her to America and taught her daughters the pasty tradition while growing up.
Keeping with this idea, The Roving Lunchbox believes any dish can inspire a hand pie. We take such comforting flavors as the classic Reuben and Cuban sandwiches, Moroccan Chicken Tagine and Salted Caramel Apples as a jumping off point and continue to seek out new and interesting flavors to wrap in our flaky pie crust. Each pie is hand made with the freshest ingredients. Light and flaky, our crust is the perfect complement to our delicious savory and sweet fillings. We're making it our mission to bring the hand pie tradition to hungry urbanites in and around Boston.
