Art of the Pie A Practical Guide to Homemade Crusts, Fillings, and Life by Kate McDermott
Kate McDermott has taught thousands of people how to make pies at her Pie Camps. Here she gives detailed instructions for making, rolling and baking crusts, and she does not neglect a detail when describing her ingredients, methods and tricks for making the filling and finishing off the pie. McDermott's rules extend beyond pie baking: keep everything chilled, respect the boundaries and remember to vent. This is a book to keep close at hand.
