Word of Varine Carr's great pies reached our ears, and we took a summer's drive out to the Shangri-La Resort near Mt. Ida. We had many choices -- apple, peach, cherry and blueberry fruit pies; chocolate and coconut meringue and a series of cream pies as well. Every one of them had been recommended -- except the blueberry.
We hear the chocolate pie is marvelous and not to be missed. But if you want a slice, you'd better go now. The restaurant traditionally closes for winter on November 15th.
