A Discussion with Erin Jeanne McDowell, author of The Book on Pie.
What do you hope individuals gain from this book?
There are a lot of misconceptions in the pie-making procedure, and when I composed this book, I set out to repair typical issues and assist individuals discover pie “lightbulb minutes.” I composed in it that I have a great deal of preferred features of pie, however among the most fantastic parts is making it. It’s a gorgeous procedure: where you can be imaginative, deal with your hands, and make something gorgeous. Most importantly, you get to enjoy it beyond the procedure of making it, by consuming and sharing it with others. Regrettably, the enjoyable of it is typically destroyed for newbie bakers since they aren’t acquainted with the procedure. I hope this book includes all the tools readers require to find out to bake their finest pies yet. However, mainly, I desire individuals to fall for pie. Considering that homemade pies are the very best ones out there, to really fall for pie, you have actually got to make it yourself (or live near somebody who does).

To me, pie is a filling out a crust– so, as long as it has those 2 parts, pie can be ANYTHING. Throughout the book, I have fun with shapes, decoration, and methods, and explore brand-new approaches to reveal simply how flexible pie can be.
What inspired you to end up being a baker?
I originate from a big, food-loving household. I matured caring hanging out in the cooking area with my mama and grandmother. I was likewise really influenced by 2 of my older bros who are both artists. I desired frantically to follow a comparable course, however I didn’t have their natural ability with pencils or paint. I got home from a ceramics class one day to discover my mama utilizing a tool to embellish a cake that resembled one I ‘d utilized on the pottery wheel. All of a sudden, I recognized possibly food was a medium I had not thought about. I began baking instantly, and landed my very first task in a home town pastry shop when I was 16.
What are a few of your preferred pies in the book?
A few of my preferred pies were composed with individuals I like in mind– so, a few of those hold especially close locations in my heart. The Pure Rhubarb Pie is for Granny Jeanne, who constantly felt that strawberry-rhubarb got excessive play in the pie world (do not stress– there’s a strawberry rhubarb dish in the book, too). The Black Raspberry Chiffon was influenced by my friend, Terri, and her preferred taste of ice cream. I attempted to record the charm of the gorgeous homegrown melons my moms and dads harvest in their garden each year with my Watermelon Pie. And about 5 of the mouthwatering pies have my sibling Willie’s name composed all over them.
