Chef Dominique of the newly opened bakery is bringing Thanksgiving tradition across the pond with an assortment of sweet signature pies.

Fan favourites served at Dominique’s famed Pie Nights in New York will be making their British debut. Until Sunday 27 November, individual slices of Extra-Silky Pumpkin, Salted Caramel Apple and Bourbon Pecan Pies will be available in-store (£6 per slice).

Accompaning the pies is Blossoming Hot Chocolate – chef’s homemade hot chocolate, served with a marshmallow flower bud that blooms to reveal a chocolate Bon Bon inside (£5.50). Guests can now also pre-order whole pies online (£35) for pick up in store between the same time period.
