Restaurant Introduces 'Clear Pumpkin Pie' And People Have Some Issues


Pumpkin pie is a holy trinity of the fall season. Along with turkey and stuffing, you pretty much have to have it at every Thanksgiving. It's just too good to pass up. It's probably why the pumpkin spice craze is so intense. People just want to indulge in as much pumpkin as they can before it becomes weird to order it. But clear pumpkin pie? The Internet has some very big questions about that.

I dunno what everyone's up in arms about, because the people who made this are straight up genius. 

Alinea is a restaurant in Chicago that has for years been considered one of the finest restaurants in the world, earning a preposterously rare Three Star rating from Michelin. The fella at the helm is Grant Achatz, and I watched his episode of Chef's Table, and he is a staggering culinary genius with an incredible story: Dude lost his sense of taste to cancer and got it back. And resumed creating insanity like translucent pumpkin pie. 

Pumpkin pie for the fall menu. #surrealism
