Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Working with historic sources like cookbooks from Yale's Sterling Memorial Library, Kane (Cooking and Screaming: Finding My Own Recipe for Recovery) compiled this collection of pies from the Northeast, South, Midwest, and West (e.g., Concord Grape, Southern Peach, Browned Butter Butterscotch Meringue, and Avocado). There are no photographs, so Kane relies on descriptive language to communicate the finer points of pie technique. VERDICT Compared to such classic primers as Ken Haedrich's Pie and Rose Levy Beranbaum's The Pie and Pastry Bible, this book is shorter and more focused on history. Recommended for frequent pie bakers interested in new flavors and regional specialties.

At first I was disappointed in the lack of pictures. But after reading through the entire book, I can highly recommend this cookbook. The recipes arent too difficult and I love the little "short stories" kicking off each recipe. Just reading about the "black bottom pie" made me smile on the subway ride into work. Ms. Kane also includes several kinds of pie crust and her opinion on their pluses and minuses. Overall the author is very encouraging and makes everything sound easy. You know these are all her favorites and have been thoroughly tested by her. But which should I make first? the black bottom pie, the breakfast apple pie or the pecan pie?
