Van Cleve Seafood is reimagining the Virginia crab pie, which dates back over 200 years. As the old story goes, this decadent recipe was verbally passed down to the Van Cleve family from the cookhouse of an old Virginia plantation. Staying true to the secret recipe, the Van Cleve family made crab pies using local Chesapeake Bay crabs at holiday gatherings for years until Shelly Van Cleve and her daughters, Allie and Monica, opened their own restaurant in Spotsylvania, Virginia, in 2001. Now this all-female, family-owned seafood pie shop is sharing this locally loved legend with the entire country. Van Cleve’s Blue Crab Pie competed on Lifetime’s Supermarket Superstar and O, The Oprah Magazine featured it on The O List.
