KO Catering and Pies is, in the words of co-owner Sam Jackson “the first, and only, therefore the best, and then the worst, Australian place in New England.” Radio Boston’s Sacha Pfeiffer decided to visit KO after reading Boston Globe columnist Yvonne Abraham’s take on the South Boston eatery. For Abraham, it was like tasting a piece of home.
While Abraham can’t deny her affection for her adopted hometown of Boston, she admits that “you’ll always be bound to the place where you grew up, too. Sometimes its pull can hurt pretty badly. And all you want is to taste the food you grew up with. Sometimes all you want is a meat pie.”
Friday on Radio Boston, we visit KO and take a bite (ok, a few bites) of some serious pies with Yvonne Abraham at our side. But it goes beyond the meat (and vegetarian) pies; we explore the way food can magically transport us, to places and memories long past.
