Albuquerque ReviewRaw, 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!
This book is about the life and times of Randy Shamlian and of his culinary and romantic triumphs, tragedies, foibles and fables. It is a memoir to be savored.
