Chocolate Pistachio Pie
Okay, so the Pilgrims didn't eat chocolate. But surely they would have if they'd been offered a pie as blessedly dense and rich as this one, made with a filling of dark chocolate custard nestled in a tender, cocoa-flavored crust.

This pie demands a drink with equally strong intensity and richness. "A ruby port, in particular, goes well with dark chocolate desserts," says Paul Mugnier of Premium Port Wines.
Try: Graham's Six Grapes Port ($22),
