All pie, all the time on this week’s episode as we review Erin McDowell’s newest, The Book on Pie. Erin McDowell is a food stylist and baker extraordinaire. You may have seen where she teaches weekly baking classes on Food Network Kitchen, and host the series Bake it Up a Notch for Food52. She has this warm and genuine personality, which we love. Just as importantly, she’is an expert at baking, which is why I was excited to try her book. We baked all sorts of pies, from custard to pretzel to birthday cake. If you’re looking to dig deep into the subject of all things pie, this is your book!
