Editorial Reviews

Albuquerque Review
Raw, engaging, and illuminating R. Shamlian's memoir, A Slice of Apple Pie, impresses upon you his keen sensibilities as man and artist. He tantalizes your taste buds with detail of the oral gratification he perfected over his 30+ years as a pastry chef and shares his passion for music, food, friends and family-in fact, were it not for the passion evident in his writing, this memoir might have been of a Picaro with a bent for manipulating the palate. R. Shamlian admits the perplexities of romance and even hands over his award-winning apple pie recipe all with a sense of a great sense of humor and irony. Read this book!
