3. Yes, Please, Pie!
“Don’t forget the pie!”
That’s what one of my students said to me when we were once discussing Thanksgiving plans. While noting that his grandmother makes a special devil’s food cake for his birthday, pie was distinctly his preference and, especially, sweet potato.
“Pie: A Hand Drawn Almanac” by Emily Hilliard and Elizabeth Graeber offers some competition for the sweet potatoes. From pies with July berries to Speculoos Pie to Fried Apple Pies With Salty Caramel Glaze, the recipes are mouthwatering and the hand-drawn illustrations give the book the feel of a community cookbook. I’m quite ready to hie me to the produce section of my local grocery store, lug home bags of fruit and get baking.
