Barbara Tenney’s Famous Pot Pie Dinner at KaTom

Do you still have leftover turkey? Consider making a comfort food staple: pot pie. Barbara Tenney brought her recipe to KaTom last week, just in time for the holidays. This pot pie is quite well known with some famous East Tennesseans so I was excited to try it myself. Truly, it is the best chicken pot pie that I have ever had so don’t look at these pictures if you are hungry right now.

Periodically, KaTom Restaurant Supply in Kodak will offer a class with a local, well known chef. You can call to buy a ticket and reserve a seat for the class. It includes recipes, demonstration, and a dinner. When Barbara Tenney is the chef, I try to never miss the class. Follow KaTom on Facebook and sign up for email news to stay informed of the latest demos and classes.

The menu for this evening was

Crab-apple Spinach Salad

Chicken Pot Pie

and Pumpkin Streusel Pie.

We arrived just in time. The sign on the screen gives you ways to connect with KaTom Restaurant Supply on social media.

We had a clear view of the kitchen and overhead screen. Laura introduces Barbara Tenney to the class attendees…most of whom are Barbara Tenney fans.


The overhead screen shows a view of the cran-apple fruit dressing for the salad.

The fruit component of the dressing presented holiday colors and flavors.

The fruit, dressing, and candied pecans are delightful with spinach.

Chick pot pie filling contains a lot of goodness!

The chicken pot pie was bubbling hot out of the oven.

Before the main course, we reminisced about the frozen pot pies from childhood, but Barbara’s pie quickly pushed those memories to the side. Superb!


The Pumpkin Streusel pie was exceptional. If I were ever to make a pumpkin pie, it would definitely be this recipe because of the crunch and creaminess of the filling.


It was an amazing meal with a delightful finish.

There are two more chances to see Barbara Tenney holiday demos on December 14 and 21 at 11:00 a.m.. These demonstrations will be free so save me a seat at the counter!
