A Pie Story

About Melissa


In 2015 Melissa retired as a professional Opera singer and began Grandma Ruth’s Pies in honor of her late Grandmother, Ruth. What started as baking for family and friends to enjoy during the holidays quickly expanded to local farm stands in the Hamptons. When she moved to Los Angeles in 2017, Melissa’s business boomed, reaching a larger audience. She started servicing the entertainment industry and local farmers’ markets, turning Grandma Ruth’s Pies into a year-round operation. She currently sells online, offering local delivery in Los Angeles and the Hamptons and flash-frozen pies shipped nationally. Some crowd favorites are the Vegan Apple Crumble Pie and Chocolate Cream Pie.

Grandma Ruth's Pies bring families together. With a heap of flavors that explode on the first bite, our pies contain fresh, organic, taste-tested ingredients. Ice-cold hands mix organic butter, sugar, cinnamon, and flour to mold the most mouthwatering, savory, and flakiest crust into perfection. Melissa delivers Grandma Ruth’s love into the homes of everyone that eats her delicious pies. Although she no longer performs Opera professionally, Melissa still loves to sing in the kitchen. You can listen to her in action @grandmaruthspies.
