"I admit, I raised my eyebrows when I unpacked a new gift item called Pie Contest In A Box...Second reaction: Oh, so what. This could be fun. I think I'll actually use the contents of the box -- score sheets, pie toppers, and ribbons -- to liven up a contest this summer for my pie-baking kids, or maybe bring it along for a summer vacation with friends. But the handbook in the box is the part that seems the most useful..." --Rebekah Denn, Al Dente
"...could be incredibly useful wherever food markets, block parties, and 4-H fairs thrive." --Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal

Homey, hospitable and entertaining, that goodwill was warmly felt. I learned lots of tidbits about pie I did not know and am seriously excited about hosting a pie contest. Plus, some seriously interesting recipes from contest winners I'm looking forward to trying.
My only disappointment is that my kindle paperwhite could not open the downloaded file for this book. Had I known that, I would have purchased the paperback.
