Sweet Potato Pie reigns on the Thanksgiving table

This article in my local newspaper brings up the sweet potato/pumpkin pie debate and also features a new black-owned restaurant in Oakland.

Forget the pumpkin. Thanksgiving, says New Orleans native Michael LeBlanc, is all about sweet potato pie.

"I think there's a cultural difference between Southern and Northern folks," says the owner of Pican, Oakland's swanky Southern-style restaurant. "The first time I heard of pumpkin pie, I was 24 or 25. Pumpkin was for Halloween and you had to buy them at the store."
