Pie - 300 Tried-and-True Recipes For Delicious Homemade Pie
by Ken Haedrich
Pie - by The Pie Academy founder Ken Haedrich - is more than just a 639-page collection of the most delicious pies you’d ever hope to find in one place. It’s a bonafide American treasure, voted one of the Top 7 Baking Books of the past 25 years by Cooking Light magazine. (They said, in part, “...lots of precision, very little pretense.”)
It’s a 2-inch thick, 300-recipe love letter written by a fellow whose unquenchable fondness for pie spans nearly 5 decades and thousands of hours in the kitchen perfecting the pie maker’s art.
As one reviewer put it, “Haedrich has the most reassuring voice in food literature, and his lifelong passion - the making and baking and all manner of pies - soon begins to fit the reader like a new skin.”
Whether you’re an old pro or novice, Ken anticipates your concerns and makes you feel as if he’s right there in the kitchen with you, cheering you on. He has a gift for demystifying his subject, a knack for putting you at ease. The only troublesome thing about Pie? Trying to decide where, in this tempting collection, to begin.
