Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The pies we tasted from Four & Twenty Blackbirds were so satisfying and deliriously delicious that they left every other pie we sampled in the dust" —Danny Meyer, CEO, Union Square Hospitality Group

"Emily and Melissa Elsen make pies the way nobody makes pies anymore but everybody used to, which is to say, pies that are buttery and always right for the season and hard to stop eating. It's a score they've decided to share the recipes that put them on the map."— Frank Falcinelli & Frank Castronovo Chef/Owners of Frankies Spuntino and Prime Meats and authors of Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion

    Can't say enough good things about this cookbook!

    I bought this to read the history of my hometown girls who made it big in New York. My mother was the "egg lady" for the family restaurant in Hecla, SD. I read the book cover to cover for the wonderful recipes and pie baking hints and suggestions. I am gluten intolerant and enjoy making pies with gluten free flours. Inspiring! Make a special trip to the restaurant if you are anywhere near NYC.

    I just received my book this past weekend and I have to say that

    I just received my book this past weekend and I have to say that it is excellent. I am an avid baker and I learned so much on how to make pies. From the very beginning of using the right equipment to how to create the perfect pie crust to finding excellent ingredients. This book is awesome. Now make sure you read the cover carefully because it does say "unusual" pie recipes. I found that most of these pie recipes are odd but they have to be delicious. I love trying new things: so I am able to prefect my pies whilst trying out new and awesome recipes. 
    This book is set up in many easy to follow sections, and it is an easy read. Everything is explained and it is written so that if you need to make adjustments it would not be to strenuous of a job to do. All in all I loved this book and I cannot wait to try these recipes. I also cannot wait until I can actually go to New York and visit these wonderful women. Happy baking!!
