delighted with variety of pies & much side information.
The book features pies (both sweet and savory) that will literally have you want to start licking the pages... And it's not just because the recipes sound so delicious...the photographs are amazing!
This book is divided up into four main "chapters".
Chapter 1 - Flaky Piecrust
Chapter 2 - Fruity Pies
Chapter 3 - (Mostly Creamy Pies)
Chapter 4 - Quiches, Potpies, and Other Savories
I can't really pick a favorite - but I will say that my favorite recipe is in Chapter 4...more on that later.
The first chapter is dedicated completely to the piecrust, which I really loved and appreciated. Who knew there were so many different variations of piecrusts?! I didn't! But I'm glad I know now...because I'm wanting to try them all!
