Ploughman's Pork Pie at Jones Wood Foundry, Dish #91

Welcome to 100 Dishes to Eat Now, the tasty countdown leading up to our "Best of 2012" issue. Tune in each day (weekends too!) for a new dish from the Fork in the Road team.

Ploughman's Pork Pie ($11) A lovely, cold slice of pork pie at the Upper East Side's pubby Jones Wood Foundry. It's a sweet, soft, gently spiced terrine in pastry, served with a nest of celery-root remoulade and a fine pair of malty, pickled onions. One the side, there's a hard-boiled egg and a bit of dressed salad. I usually like to eat a whole pork pie out of the bag, as if it were a cupcake, which is terrific, comforting, and...a bit gross, I know. The truth is, it's much better enjoyed like this, in a more thoughtful ratio of porky pie to vegetables.
