Volkman's Favorite Dish: 'The miniature mason jars of Dungeness crab pot pie are adorable and just as tasty as they sound. The dish perfectly balances the comfort and heartiness of a pot pie with a rich and sophisticated brandy cream sauce with a mirepoix of vegetables. The top and bottom crust offer texture contrast, since the top crust was a flakey butter pastry and the bottom crust was layered Yukon gold scalloped potatoes. The dish makes you feel loved as you eat it!'
