I was the kid who had to have "birthday pie" instead of a cake. My love affair began at age 8 with a tart cherry hand pie and my devotion has never wavered.
I will use prepared crust but my best pies have always been the ones where I've rolled out my own dough. Ken Haedrich gave me a few tips and I look forward to putting them to good use.
This book is stuffed with great ideas, step by step instructions and loads of glorious ph ...more

That being said, I’m what you call a quick, no muss no fuss cook and baker (at least that is my goal when I enter the kitchen). No huge kitchen-aid on my counter, if I can’t do the prep in just a few minutes, my atten ...more

I did have download problems, but saw stunning color photos and read more at Storey Publishing’s website. What a fantastic book for making every pie imaginable, from lovely classics like apple or lemon meringue, to mouthwatering Triple-Layer Pumpkin-Chocolate or Dense Cherry-Almond Coffeecake Pie. My head is spinning with all the choices.
The tricky how-tos of pie crusts, with ...more

This book goes over the tools and things you need to know before you start. It contains a very comprehensive troubleshooting guide that is organized by category. My favourite little addition was the list of pies you can mail to people. I would never think of mailing a pie to someone, but that could be a fun idea.
The book covers several crusts and fillings. Each pie has a very detailed step by step instruction ...more
More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/Pie Academy is pretty much everything you would want in a book about the subject: discussions on pie plates, tools, techniques; a wide selection of recipes; and plenty of beautiful photographs of the finished product. The author combines old and new, traditional and experimental to provide a wide range of fail safe pies.
The first part of the book is all about the making of a pie: pins, pans, blenders, flour, fats, fi ...more

Tips on how to mail a pie were super handy. He is all-inclusive with his advice.
I appreciated how the author, our “dean” of the Pie Academy, is accessibly and friendly in his tone - not lofty or self-important.
Amazingly vast assortment of recipes, though I wish there had been more photos. Also, for the photos present, wish there was a caption ...more

I could not get enough of this cookbook. Our patrons including myself are fans of cookbooks that show step-by-step photos throughout the baking process because sometimes when you follow a recipe, you're unsure if you are doing each step correctly and having a picture to show for it makes it a lot easier to make a fantastic pie, Can't wait ...more
