Teeny Lamothe wanted to be a lady pie baker, no doubt because her passion for baking and for pie came at an early age, happily learned at her mother's side. But how, she thought, could she accomplish such a feat? Deep in thought, while noshing on pie, Lamothe came up with the idea for her “Tour of Pie.” She would take a year off to travel across America, learning pie baking from the nation's finest. The only hitch was getting the nation's finest to be willing participants. A letter writing campaign ensued, and while the responses were not quite as enthusiastic as her letters, she did get a smattering of curious pie bakers to take her up on her offer of a free apprenticeship in exchange for their knowledge.

Her quest began in Seattle at High 5 Pie where she worked alongside owner Dani Cone, author of Cutie Pies. It continued as she baked her way through nine states, ending in Littleton, Colorado, at the home of her mother for her final apprenticeship. This book is invaluable to people interested in learning to bake pies, hone their skills, or increase their repertoire. Sections on equipment describe, in detail, what you will need to bake a winner of a pie, from the simple rolling pin and the many variations, to the pastry blender, crust cutter, and crust shield (something that I really do need).

The chapter on The Elements of Crust is worth the price of this book alone. Amazing detail and insight is provided along with the secret to a crust flakier than the one your grandma made, accomplished by substituting the water for vodka, an ingredient that evaporates more quickly during baking and, as such, yields a lighter, flakier crust. Venting, decorating, lattice, what to do with excess scraps of crust, are all covered in fine detail in this chapter. And the recipes!

As our guide through pie baking and her own travels, Teeny Lamothe has a charming voice and style. The book is full of gorgeous photography, heart warming stories, and most importantly, luscious pie recipes that make you want to rush out to the nearest farmer's market and begin collecting ingredients. Teeny includes a lot of her wisdom gleaned from her experiences to help you navigate your own baking experiments. I've been fortunate enough to taste a real-life Teeny pie made by the author, and I'm so thrilled to have the chance to attempt her recipes in my kitchen.

Format: Paperback
What a marvelous way to charge after your life’s work. Pursuit of happiness through pie! And what a dream tour this author Teeny Lamothe took! How envious I am to think that this author was able to break away from all that tied her down and gallivant across the country, studying under great pie-makers, -bakers and -shop owners.

Author Teeny Lamothe is not stingy with instructions and there are a decent number of descriptive pictures. She has a great writing style and shares inspirational stories. On a fairly basic level, her book talks about using season ingredients, how to deal with temperature and humidity variables, gives information (not necessarily advice) on “tools”, and provides some troubleshooting advice. She provides five signature dough crusts, including one gluten-free and one all whole-wheat, plus Teeny has developed three crumb crusts and three crumbles, plus some whipped cream flavors. There are a few other crust and crumble recipes scattered throughout the book that come from the bakeries where she apprenticed.

There are many wonderful pies included—both sweet and savory. And, having made many of them, several have become “keepers”. But, when it comes right down to it, I can’t give this pie book a 5-star rating. What do I expect in a pie book, one that earns my 5-star stamp of approval? Explicit, detailed, how-to photos; explicit and detailed trouble-shooting tips and guidelines; and, most of all: A multitude of pie recipes. This book, while quite good in those categories, is not supreme in those categories.**

Many of her ideas and “Lessons” show too much of her true inexperience. (Lesson #1 Put Your Hair Up; Lesson #3 Always Buy in Bulk (25 lb bags of flour), really? This is advice for the at-home baker? Lesson #4 Keep Your Expense Receipts…).

I bought this book after hearing an interview with Teeny Lamothe on Colorado Public Radio a few months ago. I gave it to a friend as a shower gift, but not before paging through it and deciding I would need to get another copy for myself. In fact, I bought two more copies. Even if you don't intend to make a pie, you might enjoy her story, and she is a good storyteller. I have only made my own pie crust twice in my life, but I am excited to try again. For Thanksgiving I used a pre-made crust (time pressures and crust anxiety) and I used Teeny's pumpkin pie recipe. I usually don't like pumpkin pie, but she has a fresh tasting pie that is not heavily spiced. I followed her recommendation and made lemon zest whipped cream to go with it. Both got great reviews at our gathering, and one friend asked about the book. She was so intrigued with the book that I gave her my spare copy. I can't wait to try more of Teeny's recipes, but until I do, I am enjoying just reading this engaging book!
