There’s no need to venture off to Europe to feast on European breads and pastries when you can have it all right here at home — at Fendu Boulangerie, to be exact.
Owner and chef Niel Koep opened this bakery in Manoa Marketplace in March 2009, and since then has been greeting customers with a varied selection of daily breads, breakfast pastries, pizzas, sandwiches, desserts and more.
Today, he debuts his new Island Style Chicken Pot Pie (regular $9.50, petite $5.50).
“It’s comfort food; it’s something that everyone understands,” Koep says. “It’s 100 percent all-natural, there’s no hydrogenated shortenings and it’s made with fresh vegetables, chicken (white and dark meat) and fresh butter.”
And Koep makes it a point to support local farmers as well, using fresh taro, green papaya and bok choy, among other items, in bringing a bit of the islands to his pot pie.
“The taro cooks just like a potato and it has a very nice texture when intermixed with the pot pie,” he explains, adding that the pot pie makes for a great lunch or early dinner.
“It’s a classic chicken pot pie with fresh vegetables and chicken stock. The whole thing is bound with a cream sauce, topped with pot pie dough and then baked in the oven.”
