Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Every other week, we feature a recipe from the crew at Marczyk Fine Foods, the gourmet market at 770 East Seventeenth Avenue overseen by Pete Marczyk and his wife, Barb Macfarlane.

The market pimps, among other things, pies, which are a hot seller during the holidays, although Barb insists that a kick-ass pie isn't easy to come by. "Everyone loves pies, but -- and this is a big but -- it's hard as hell to find a good one. They're either too sweet, too full of fillers or just fake-tasting," she claims.

Enter Marczyk master baker John Hinman, whose manly hands can be seen massaging the dough in the pie porn video on the following page. "John uses an all-lard crust, and there are no cans of goopy filling being poured into the shells. It's all made from scratch, and the taste and texture are excellent," says Barb.

But while Himan's caresses are sexy in their own right, it's the music that really sets the tone.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
