“Armed with its recipes, you’ll be able to make pie for vegans, gluten avoiders, lard fanciers, whole-grain purists and butter-crust traditionalists. The last group will be especially happy.” —New York Times
Petra (Petee) Paredez shares her personal repertoire of impeccable baking techniques that have made her pie shops, Petee’s Pie Company and Petee’s Café, New York darlings. At the heart of it all, the goal is simple—a tender, flaky crust and perfectly balanced filling—and this cookbook leads the way with easy-to-follow, step-by-step guidance. Recipes include:
- Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie
- Key Lime Meringue Pie
- Chicken Pot Pie
- Vegan Pumpkin Pie
- Chocolate Cream Pie
A champion of locally sourced ingredients, Paredez features some of the best farms and producers in profiles throughout the book, inspiring us to seek out the very best ingredients for our pies wherever we may live. Filled with vibrant photography and recipes for just about every pie imaginable, from fruit and custard to cream and even savory, Pie for Everyone invites us to share in the magic and endless appeal of pie.
‘“Pie for Everyone” means what it says: Armed with its recipes, you’ll be able to make pie for vegans, gluten avoiders, lard fanciers, whole-grain purists and butter-crust traditionalists. The last group will be especially happy. Petra Paredez, a wizard with a rolling pin who founded Petee's Pie Company in New York, has a method for sneaking more butter into pie dough than I thought possible. This produces the melting, tender deliciousness that those of us who admire Petee’s know well. There are small, improving deviations from standard recipes throughout the book, but tradition is the backbone of “Pie for Everyone.”’The New York Times, Pete Wells
