Best Pie in Arkansas? Best Food Truck in the State? Both in Northwest Arkansas. Congrats to Chef Rob Nelson of Tusk & Trotter & Chef Brent Hale of Big Sexy Food Being Named To These National Best-of Lists!

Best Pie in Arkansas

People Magazine Recognizes Tusk & Trotter for Best Pie in the State

PEOPLE teamed up with dining guide and restaurant news site Eater to find the most heavenly slices across the country and the Possum pie at Tusk & Trotter stood out among all the rest.  Chef Rob Nelson’s version has house-made pecan sandies, vanilla-bean cream-cheese frosting, chocolate custard and coconut marshmallow.

In Nelson’s own words, “Three years ago I went to my Culinary Team at Tusk and asked them to help me create a completely twisted but still slightly familiar version of the unofficial State pie oddly named “Possum Pie.” If anyone has ever had it before then you know it’s nothing fancy at all! I’m talking layers of boxed chocolate and vanilla pudding set in a store bought pie crust topped with cool whip and sprinkled with pecans. That’s it. So we decided to keep the chocolate, vanilla and pecan flavors as the base to our dessert and agreed we would keep it in pie shape. From there we created a playful modern spin on this Arkansas Classic.”
