Whenever someone moves out of the Utica area, you hear how they miss Utica specific foods, like tomato pie, half moons, riggies, etc. That's exactly why Vincent DeSimone wanted to bring a little bit of Utica to North Carolina.
Before you throw up your arms in disgust, hear me out.
There are several things that are staples in Central and Upstate New York - halfmoons, greens and tomato pie, hiking and camping the Adirondacks, cheering on the Orangemen, running the Boilermaker. Everyone rants and raves about it all; how great the food tastes or how fun the great outdoors is.
It's no secret that the Utica area is pretty well known for their food options. What would you do if there was a sandwich created that incorporated the majority of these all together? Would you eat it?
If you've grown up in Utica, Rome, or Central New York chances are you have had Tomato Pie at a family party or gathering. Have you ever looked up the recipe for Utica Tomato Pie to make it yourself at home?
