Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Well-thought-out recipes centered on seasonal ingredients...plenty of updated standards incorporating new ingredients or flavor twists.” --The Wall Street Journal

"English’s talent is twofold: repurposing a traditional dish while staying true to its food legacy and giving us foolproof instructions and color step-by-step photographs for making piecrusts right. Also, her approach, as with all good chefs, is seasonal, as is her collection, divided into winter, spring, summer, and autumn. Interspersing savory with sweet, she proffers some intriguing, gotta-make-this kinds of pie: rosemary-bourbon sweet-potato pie, ratatouille and polenta pie, carrot pie, and buttered-rum shoofly pie." --Booklist

“Pie is one of those nearly universally loved dishes. It's beautiful, delicious, and incredibly versatile. However, you would think that after a few centuries of tweaking this quintessentially American food, there wouldn't be a whole lot left to say about it. Ashley English not only proves this wrong, but she manages to make us look at pie in a new light. From the decadent Chocolate, Coffee, and Orange Marmalade Tart to the veritably heart-warming Curried Winter Vegetable Pie, English sparks the impetus to dust off the old pastry blender and 9-inch pie pan and make something delicious. Prepare to be transported by her infectious enthusiasm and independent spirit.” -- The Joy of Cooking (official site)

 “If you buy one pie book this year, make it this one.” --Rurally Screwed

“Ashley English's passion about pies is felt throughout her entire book . . . Her enthusiasm comes out through each and every recipe . . . It's dangerous to read this book on an empty stomach.” --About.com Baking

“Ashley English's new cookbook, A Year Of Pies: A Seasonal Tour of Home Baked Pies, offers much inspiration. Seasonally organized and brimming with both sweet and savory pies, the book gives step-by-step instructions on all the technical details of making pies, from tools, to crusts, to decorating. It's packed with useful and good-looking photography, and a host of recipes for pies (and tarts, quiches, and galettes) made with both traditional and innovative flavor combinations.” --Garden and Gun
